Interesting. Just took a look at that pump and it is much lower volume than the one I linked. 0.67gpm at 40psi. The one I linked is 3gpm at 60psi.

Regardless, I'd rather use a submersible 110V pump than that one anyway, I'm just wary because none of them are rated up to the high pressure required by the spray balls. Pretty much why I started this thread.

I have a Chinese pump in use for more than ten years, purchased on line.
My setup uses non rotating spray balls.
Not a good pump if used with cheep low pressure hoses in case of a blockage.
The pressure I tested got close to 65 psi.

The only non stainless part inside the pump housing was a brass screw I replaced with stain less.
