Marine vs Regular battery for ShurFlo


New Member
Hello Everyone,
I am getting a backup pump and was wondering what is the best way to go for the 12 volt source: Marine or Regular car battery? I have heard good things about both but would like some more info. Please share your experiences and any pro's and con's between each battery. I am going 12 volt because I will not have to run my generator to do some small jobs or roof jobs. Thanks.

Mark covered it pretty good.

A car battery isn't designed to be drained down over and over like a deep cycle is.
