New to the forum, I recently bought a 2014 suntracker 20 fishing barge. It has a front and rear live well. I screwed a regular garden water hose on the fitting on the rear live well so I could wash off the deck when needed. The boat can with a 500 gph pump which produced very little pressure,I had ordered a 1000gph pump and not much better. I don't expect high volume coming out but what size do I need?
Thanks for any advise

Bilge and live well pumps are designed for volume, not pressure. Due to their basic design they are never going to develop "washdown" pressure.

you need to plumb in an rv on demand water pump. that will give you the pressure you need for a garden hose. hope this helps......

If you google marine wash down hose you will see a lot of different ones.




These are only a couple of things that I found but there are many with different water pressure.
