Got any particular brands in mind for these pumps?
Never heard of one if I'm honest.

these have been working pretty darn good for me, the smallest I have is about 2"x2". it's the AP1000, but I only paid about $16 at lfs.

Tried searching for that pump, not too sure if I can get it over the pond.

I did come across this thing tho: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00L..._SS115&simLd=1

I know it's probably cheap and crappy but for a once-a-week use I'm really not bothered.

May want to up the output a bit, that's basically what you're looking for though.

Well it says 240l/h, what's that? Like 60g/h? 1g/min?

I think a 2 minute job will do me fine.

How about that tubing?
The nozzles on the pump are 8.6mm OD and the tube is 8mm ID..

This is the right tube right?

It'll work fine, but keep in mind the higher the pump has to pump the water, the longer it'll take for it to pump it.

As for the tubing, that will fit but worst case scenario you use a heat gun to heat up the tube and get it around the fittings on the pump, but I doubt that will be necessary.

Believe me, anything would be quicker than me trying to lift a 5G jug..
