Pumping water from the lake to the cabin
I'm not sure I even know enough to ask questions. I have a cabin on a clean lake and I just want to run a solar powered pump to get water from the lake to the sink in the cabin. I do not want a holding tank, so I've been told I need a "demand pump." I think I want a solar panel to keep a 12 volt battery charged, a battery, a pump, and about 100' of hose to get it to the cabin. I usually get by with 20 gallons of water (hauled in buckets from the lake) each day, so my usage in minimal. My questions: What kind of 12volt DC pump makes sense for this application? What kind of battery should I buy? What size solar panel will it take? Would something like PEX hose encased in my old 1¼" water line be a good idea?
