Having running water can be one of the only things that keeps you entirely sane when you are out caravaning around the country. Having a nice caravan sink to do your dishes in can make you feel like you are at home, especially if you have other useful caravan parts as well. Caravan plumbing can be difficult, so it is important to make sure that you have the right caravan parts before you start on the job. If you don’t, you might find that you run into problems and end up having to spend a lot of money to get a professional to install your new sink.Getting Water to Your Sink
Getting water to your new sink will obviously involve some new caravan plumbing, usually in the form of a carvan pump. Now, caravan pumps really vary in shape, size and function. The simplest pumps on the market are basic and powered ones. They connect directly to your water tank via some simple caravan plumbing. They don’t need any electricity, and are probably best for any vans where the sink is the only source of running water.Electric Pumps
Alternatively, you can get your hands on an electric pump. These are more suitable if you have other sources of plumbing in the caravan, or if you have quite a large sink. If you mean to have hot water, then you will probably need some sort of electric pump. Choose between 12 volt and 240 volt pumps according to your van’s power supply; make sure you get it right, or you find yourself spending extra time you might not have, trying to connect it!Want a Shower as Well?
So you are plumbing up your caravan? Well, why not put in a new caravan shower at the same time? Doing so will allow you to enjoy the comforts of civilised life, while travelling the world in your caravan. Note that you will need some sort of hot water for a (comfortable) shower!
