I will get the model # etc. and post on here tomorrow for you, with a pic.

It wasn't very expensive, but it is sturdy (metal case) with alligator clips to hook directly to the battery. Pretty handy, since my gravity water fill is just over from my entrance steps/battery bay on the passenger side. I keep it - with a short length of standard hose - in a small pail in a storage bay. It's GREAT for quickly pumping water from the jerry cans (jugs).

I had first tried one of those cheap plastic battery operated siphon pumps, but it was VERY slow and flimsy... it started leaking after a couple uses.

We bought a small D-cell powered pump for filling our DEF tank from a 2.5 gallon jug of the stuff. It has about a 30" long "nose"; that drops down into the the tank. It does a really good job for a $10 pump.
It would work great for moving water around.
Check Amazon...

Think LONG AND HARD about those composting toilets before changing out a working system.. Human Waste is considered a Bio-hazard, and must be disposed of as per state & fed regulations.. not just throw into a convenient dumpster..

That one only has a half-meter head. So that you can sit the jug on the ground while the pump runs you'll likely want at least 2 meters of head on the pump.

Mine is 110V, and fairly similar in specs to this (but MUCH older and USA made):

Most people on here don't know a meter is equivalent to 3.281 feet, without looking it up

Here's my water transfer setup (except for a short length of hose).

I bought the pump at Menard's maybe 4 years ago. It's now listed at Menards for about $53, but I paid quite a bit less back then. They're all over Amazon for about that price. IMO I think it's worth $53...

I have three of the blue 7 gallon jugs - I always keep an empty one in a storage bay for water transfer if needed. From experience, it takes about 1-1/2 minutes to transfer 7 gallons from the jug to the fresh water tank.
