Next? ... :pop:

Geesh ! How about replacing with asphalt shingles.  :cry:

Just soaking up moss. LOL. Maybe 30-60 minutes of actual spray time?? Run it until the battery quits then put a charger on it.... or do both at the same time.

Hell... I even like the the idea of borrowing the neighbor's lawn tractor... problem solved.  :smilep:

ederdelyi,

If the pump is working properly and the power supply keeps up, soaking the roof thoroughly shouldn't take more than two hours max.  Actual pumping time I suspect will be maybe an hour, hour and a half. 

Thanks all for your advise.   :beer:   :beer:

If you get solar panels to charge some batteries to run an inverter to power a PC supply to run the pump.... well our here in Cali, they'll pay you for being "green".  :teeth:
I feel the need... for twisties with speed.

Just use a car battery and you're all set. If you don't mind running a cord and have a decent battery starter/charger you can plug it in when you're actually using the pump. Just set it to a 2 - 4 amp setting depending on what it has, it will increase the amount of time you get from the battery. If the pump is drawing 8 amps and the charger puts out 4 you only draw ~4 from the battery.
