getting away with hand balling water to site but i dont know how long i can keep it up. 

realised there is a brook nearby but its not uphill so gravity fed watering isnt going to work.

 

I would require a pump but i can have anything thats going to make a noise, i was thinking anyone use any hand operated pumps?

No first hand experience unfortunately but I am in a similar situation, eBay and the like seem to have drill operated pumps, would a cordless drill be too loud?

Yeah I seen them, but yeah probably too loud for my liking

 

But might be worth a try keep watering at the right hour could get away with it

 

 

Just checked..... Inlet maximum length is 2m..... So no good

Try Googling "Bilge pump", used a hand one on a boat before and it moved quite a lot of water, it looks like some kind of gearstick.

 

Edit - Some text taken from a site selling them:

 

"Up to 10 litres of water per 30 strokes in one minute."

Too wet in spring, too dry in summer.  Game this growing innit!

Relax, things will work out, stick to the basics and avoid watching that knobhead on YouTube
