This is what I was working on today.
Removed my old water injection pump. Then screwed it to the top of my old cooler.
I stuck a 6 foot long length of new premium fuel line, I wasn't going to cut it down. Then on the discharge end I put a 1/4''OD push fitting and a little length of line.
I measured it putting out a half gallon of water per minute powered by my jump starter pack.
Installing a shorter length of 1/2''ID line will greatly reduce suction lift head and going to 3/8''OD or 8mmOD line on the discharge and powering it with full 14.4v power should help.
Even a half gallon per minute should be more than enough.
