Hi, Does anyone know where I can find a water pump that is operated by a cordless drill - very useful when camping - I forgot to ask the chap who was telling me about it where to find one - Camping shops around here haven't heard of it.
Thanks for any info. Ian

Hi Ian,

I did a google and come up with an Australian site you can get them.
There was also a couple of options such as ebay where you can also get them.

The search criteria I used was - water pump attachment for electric drill

Drill powered water pump

Bugger!!!

Just noticed that Northern Tool and Equipment is an American based company.
Try the google search I mentioned and you may find an Australian retailer, or just use ebay.

I do recall they used to be available in hardware stores.

I would have thought a bilge pump would be better, then you don't have to have the capacity to charge the drill as well.

In my opinion you may be better off with a 12v volt bilge pump.

I have two in use for bush camping, one to power the shower, the other to pump water from a river or stream, both linked to the second battery in the cruiser.

Very versatile and can be used for all purposes with out he need to recharge batteries.

Saw some at marine outlet with good capacity for $39.99.

Have fun Haji-Baba

I had one years ago that I bought at bunnings. Poor little thing - I used it to pump my septic tank. It did the job twice then finally died. Don't know if they still sell them.

Not too hard to find, they are actually named "Lion Drill Pump".
Check eBay, about $18.00.

Try your nearest boating/marine supplier.
If no luck, they can be bought online from here

I have used this pump type myself. But, it didn't last too long because of the nasty chemicals I put through it destroyed the impeller.
Ok for water though, and self priming to meters high.
