You'll have to excuse my ignorance on the wiring. But why do you need to use a relay? Why can't you run from the battery, to the switch, straight to the pump? This sounds like a great idea and I'm definitely going to be trying it soon. Thanks for the nice write up.

You unscrew the tips and soak them in a small cup for a couple minutes to remove the calcium.

The pump draws 7A when running. I chose to use a relay to keep that current between the battery and the pump, and a low current line from the ignition for the switch.

Did you use any fuses in the circuit? And if so where?

I fused the main power to the pump, and I fused the switch.

I've got my pump and wiring, just waiting on the nozzles to get here. I think I'm going to install it on the vertical wall of this hidden area.

But instead of cutting out the tub, I'll go up from behind the wheel well and drill a small hole ontop by the roll bar for the 1/4" tube. What I'm curious about is how bad does this thing vibrate, and how loud does that make it?

I hear the pump a little when it is running, but no vibration. Mine is mounted on an L bracket to the inside bolts that hold the PSC corner armor on.

Stogie, got the nozzles today - thanks! What a nice guy

Question about the pump: do they have a pressure switch and cycle on and off? Just curious...

I am glad the nozzles got there.

There is a switch on the pump that has no user interface, so I assume that it is a pressure or a heat switch. Today I was using it, and found that I only use it for a few seconds at a time. I think I am going to make my switch a momentary-off-on switch. I might put the momentary on a timer circuit of about 7 seconds. I have not ran the pump long enough to get hot or turn itself off.

Let me know if you work that out. Thanks again.

This is a great idea and wanted to thankyou for the idea and write up again. I just pretty much finished mine today...took about 6 hours. I mounted the pump in the cavity behind the rear passenger wheel well(I posted a link to a web site explaining the location earlier). I didn't cut into the tub, but instead pulled the lining from the wheel well down so I could reach up into the space. This pic shows the 4 bolts going through the wheel well, holding the pump on the other side of it.

This is a picture of the pump looking straight up from the ground, so it's kinda hard to get your bearings. I used a shurflo 2.8 gallons per minute 45psi pump. Way too much pressure. It cycles on and off about every second. You can't notice it from inside, but it will wear it out quicker.

I also decided to put on more nozzles. I ran those hose up the rear roll bar, and put one nozzle on the top back corner, then ran the hose up to the sound bar and around to the rear of the other roll bar for the other nozzle. I then put a T-adapter in the middle and a valve and made two more nozzle that point in the face of the drive and passenger. These can be turned on/off, so they're good for quick bursts to wet your face. I also put a faucet on the rear corner of the jeep that I attached to the pump, but the pressure was too strong for the way I connected it, so I am trying to find a better way that will hold up to the pressure. I also ran a line w/a valve on it along my spare tire carrier pointing behind the jeep so when I'm sitting behind it I can turn them on.

I always just used a hand pump one that I got from Home Depot for 5 bucks. I could just take it with me when away from the vehicle and use it anywhere...

It was made by Misty Mate.

HOLY CRAP! I just checked their site and the very same one I got on clearance for 5 bucks is running 74 dollars! At that rate I'd rather take the challenge and make my own...

Nice setup. I've seen a few of these that use on board air to pressurize a section of PVC pipe. That may be a cheaper route for those that have on board air.
