No. .....
a pump creates flow.
Restriction to flow causes pressure

So it would be enough to pump it along a hose but not really enough to be useful? My hose will be about 25 metres long. I don't have a pressure washer and my parking is not next to my house but the other side of my neighbour's house so I usually attach two hoses together and run that from the outside tap but like the idea of reducing my water bills and using some free water. So for this to work I really need to purchase a pressure washer?

It should work but I'd go for a bit of a beefier pump than the cheapest B&Q one

my main tank is going to be a 1000ltrs which mean ill get about that in fresh clean filtered water when connected to two more water butts but what size do my water butts need to be tho can i get away with say 100ltr water butts so 200ltrs plus the 1000ltrs or do i need my water butts bigger i can't see the need for bigger surely as the water butts are not for holding extra water but to help filter the water out to go into the last tank the 1000ltrs one so not there for extra water but purely to act as two big filters whats peoples thoughts??????

Firstly, punctuation is our friend, do not fear it!

As regards your question, I'm using a 2x200l water butt system, drawing water from the second butt. As I noted in my thread in this forum, the inline filter I put in the hose between the butt and the pressure washer is catching basically nothing, which tells me that one stage of gravity filtration is sufficient.

So given you've got plenty of storage in the 1000 litre tank, I don't see you need anything more than a single 100 litre filtration tank. Just make sure the pipe that goes between that smaller tank and the larger one comes out of the smaller one about ⅔ to ¾ of the way up. This way it avoids passing both sediment (at the bottom) and floating debris (top quarter of the tank).

Sorry to resurrect this thread again but just want to check some things. Going to buy a pressure washer next week, I'm currently not sure if it will run from my water butt without a pump until I look at its instructions. But if I do need a pump will a submersible pump like this work: http://www.screwfix.com/p/titan-ttb5...ump-240v/65041
Thanks for your help

What PW are you getting? You can almost always pull the instructions down off the net to look that up.

If you do find you need a pump I'd look at the Clarke ones that Machine Mart sell, quality on Titan gear can be a bit hit and miss.
