Possibly the easiest way to pressurize collected rainwater is using a bilge pump. These pumps are usually used for marine purposes, like pumping water out of the bottom of a boat, but in combination with any rainwater reserve, it can be the perfect solution to the problem of pressurizing the water. In this video, Mikael of Urban Treehouse shows how to use a bilge pump in combination with a pool rain cover. It’s truly astonishing to see that kind of hose pressure coming from such a small pump!
