MK4 Flipper Pump and Interface to Water Tank
I have a small sink and a MK4 type flipper pump. Underneath, somebody removed the hose, and there is no water tank.

I've looked around at West's, didn't have access to a salesman that day, looked through the catalog, and don't see how to hook up water to the pump.

I have a 7 gallon camping water jug similar to something I actually saw at the store. Is there a product that'll replace its cap, that has a hose through it, that'll suffice for my water supply, where I could simply bring fresh water for each cruise?

Nobody? I really don't want to deal with a stationary tank that I'll have to treat, etc. Plus, they're a bit expensive, and I'd have to mount the thing.

You basically need a hose fitting the same size as the one on the pump - probably for 1/2 inch ID hose. The water system on an ODay 22 I had 30 years ago consisted of a small collapsible water carrier connected to the sink pump. See West Marine item 232678.

God, went thru tons of those containers in all the years of camping. That's what I'll do.

Thanks. It'll work.
