Sink Installation

I figured this would be another good topic to have on here. I am planning on have a small amount of running water, so my conversion is different. I know most run off of water tanks, but I thought we could all share ideas on how we've done it or how we're going to do it. I plan on having two 5 gallon jugs underneath with pvc pipes running from a freshwater one into the faucet and then a pipe running from the sink holes to an empty one for the used water. I thought about buying a little pump to pump the water out (similar to how a keg would work) or I was thinking of buying something that had enough power to suck the water up and then I'd connect to the battery.

Re: Sink Installation

I'll have similar for my wee little sink, possibly for my wash tubs as well. I bought the Valterra hand pump faucet. They've two types. Although, with a water tank (30gln) directly under the wash tubs I should be able to setup the faucet to that without the need to take up interior space with 5gln buckets.
