I know you can get the option pump with the Multi sluice and it comes with the jumper cable style hook ups to go to a battery.

My question is, can you use a power inverter and put a lamp or clock radio plug on the wires to the pump?

I know your wall outlet is 110v AC and I think the pump is 12v DC so the inverter would handle that problem. I just dont know if its safe to attach a wall style plug to the wires on that pump.

I plan on keeping the multi sluice on my work bench at home and bringing all my cons back to the house with me. Dragging a battery to the side of the river just isnt on my list of fun things to do, especially with all the other gear that I carry.

I'm not an electrician and the last time I played with wiring I was knocked off a ladder, so any input on this would be greatly appreciated.

yes, you can use a inverter from 110 to 12V. Just make extra sure it is to 12 V.
Another option is to use a small 12V trickle charger. The one I use i can hook the pump to directly and it only puts out whatever the pump draws (less than 5 amps) Some you have to have a battery hooked to the charger with the pump, these are a hassle. I will try to find a link to the one I use when I get home tonight.

I don't have a link, forgot where I bought it but pretty sure it was at a auto store...but I just hook up the ends together & run it. I've never had an issue yet!
Works great in the garage. .
