Pump setup

I am going to put together a 12v pump setup for laying sealer on concrete. This will be way faster than my pump up sprayer that I use now. I was considering a Devalan or Shurflo pump. I will simply siphon from a 5 gallon bucket of sealer. What pump would you recommend? I was think of something between 2.5 and 3.5 gallon. Maybe even put on a accumulator.
 
I just went the easy route and got one of those kits with a pump and tank from tractor supply. Gotta buy a battery and charger as well but everything is mounted and plumbed and ready to go

You need lower GPM for applying sealer. more like 1 GPM would suit your needs. And one of those TSC tanks is gonna be a PITA when it comes time to spray another product. How are you gonna rinse it out? If you put your own rig together as a pump and battery and hose,...you can simply use a bucket of whatever product you choose,..and no rinsing out a goofy "universal" tank. A sprayer cart like this is much better.

You have the pump and battery in the boxes and put your 5 on the front of the cart?
 
They put a plug at the bottom of the tractor supply tank. Makes for easy rinsing of the tank. The cart looks great though. I just picked up something in a hurry and its suited me well and was cheap

I used a 2 gpm shurflow pump to apply 140 gallons of v seal last summer. Rinsed pump at end of the day with water. Make sure to check pump for running hot.
 
I'm in the same boat, looking for a more time effect way to apply concrete sealer and waterproofing sealer to fences and decks. I like the ideas here.. going to check TSC

Gpm pums depends if you are sealing or coating. Using a sealer like Ez Nano a 2.5 gpm if just fine. If its a coating like Seal n Lock 1gpm. Northern tool nsq pumps are great and usually local pick-up. I bought the 26gal 2.5 gpm sprayer kit and converted the pump and accessories to a hand truck. And now use the 26gal tank for my downstream tank. $130 on sale
