Solar pump to boost my hosepipe

    Is there such a thing? Something that I can connect somewhere along the hosepipe to get a bit of extra pressure?

    Looking on ebay I can't see anything

    I don't have good water pressure and watering the garden can be time consuming.

    Is this from a water but or a tap?

    I have a water tank that I run a hose from (quite a distance)

    If I run a hose from the house the pressure is a little better but not so much (and that water is metered whereas the former method is just collected rainwater in large quantities .

    It is quite high up but even so the pressure at the end of the hosepipe(s) is not brilliant.

    If I could speed up delivery I could do more with my time.

    It's not solar powered but might do what you're after, even if you need to use an extension lead

    Thanks,yes I would have to get a butt and an extension lead.

    Maybe it would be as easy to put a pump in my existing tank and attach the hose to it there.It is quite a distance (I have 3 hoses joined together for the furthest parts of the garden)
