I did something like that when I was cleaning my loop. Had the tap flow into a Pepsi 2L bottle and I drilled a hole in the bottom the size of my tubing and shoved it in. Suffice to say, the pump (MCP355) drained that 2L bottle faster than my tap could run...

However I have really shyt water pressure. Damn city! I know it's the city's fault though cause when they were cleaning all the sewers/pipes, we had our water coming in through our outside tap via a fire hydrant and man did we have some awesome water pressure.
