Generators are now a part of our lives in Nigeria, no thanks to epileptic power supply. This has made refueling generators a common part of the daily lives of ordinary Nigerians. To make refueling your generators easy, you should consider buying a siphon pump. A battery-operated siphon pumps require two, three, or more 1.5v batteries to operate. Just put the hose in your generator fuel tank and the other end in your Jerry Can and push a button, the siphon pump will do the rest.
What is a Siphon or a Siphon Pump?
A siphon (also spelt Syphon) allows a liquid to be transferred from one container to another through a tube. Ideally a siphon relies in the difference in potential between the two containers one being higher than the other.
A siphon needs to be triggered (primed) before the flow of liquid starts. This is normally done by sucking with the mouth. However, when you want to siphon fuel or poisonous liquids, priming with the mouth would not be appropriate and is simply dangerous.
In such situations a siphon pump will be more appropriate. Siphon pumps come with a small motor that does the sucking for you. All you need is a battery to power the siphon pump.
Just push the switch and the siphon pump will do the rest. Siphon pumps can be used to transfer different liquids like petrol (gasoline/gas), kerosene or diesel.
Siphon pumps can easily be used to transfer fuel from a Jerry can to the fuel tank of your generator, vehicle, water pump, mower, etc. It is recommended that you dedicate each siphon pump for a given liquid.
Do not use the same siphon pump for petrol and kerosene. Use your siphon pump only on liquids specifically mentioned by the manufacturer.
