That water pump requires hoses to work, which usually get damaged in my van. the one the water board have doesnt require a hose but works better with it!

I am looking for spanners rather then pump pliers, already have pump pliers and find they damage the nuts and occasionally the nuts are too tight and wont come off! I want a dedicated spanner for the gas meter nuts that I can leave at meter when doing gas work rather then pump pliers that will be used inside the house and when I finish the gas work, I go to meter to realise pump pliers are still on the 3rd floor! :(

I got one of those for a water leak on mains for a job and it was so slow and kept getting blocked, was not impressed. I usually use wet vac but it is 240v so a bit of a pain, or good old fashioned, stick your hand in the freezing water but want something easy to grab from van that is fast to suck water out
