    Picked up a Keene sluice over the weekend think it's the A52 the bigger one. And I'm going to make up a head to run it at home
    From what I've come across folks use a 2400gph 12v bilge pump.
    So y'all think that good or should I go smaller or bigger?
    Any input would be great

    Thanks

    Don't know about the bilge pump, never tried it

    I do know an A52 needs a lot of water, sometimes making it harder to operate
    It needs a larger creek or river for enough flow

    Let us know how it goes
    By the way, welcome to the club

    I run 2400 and is just a little to small .Get closer to a 3000 pump .As you can always put a vale on to slow it down.Just getting ready to order larger pumps .Yes I use two pups on mine .I am going to two 1600 gallon pumps .

    start bigger is always a good idea like Joseph said you can valve it to slow it down. Better to much than not enough

    I got a good size pump at Harbor Freight for a decent price. I think it was 3000 but can't recall and I am not home to look right now.
