Ok, here is the heart of my e-water project.
It is an attwood V750 submerisble bilge pump, 750 GPH
at 0 head.
I bought mine from Sporting Goods dept at Wal Mart, $17.47 plus tax.
my plan is to test these items:
how noisey the pump is
how effective it is at pumping water through plumbing
how long it runs off my 7aH 12v gell-cell battery
The instructions on the pump do not have any warnings about continous operation of the pump, but I'm sure it's not designed to run continously for years on end like a mag-drive or any other aquarium pump
My hope is to find a solution to temporary short and medium term power outages without having to resort to using expensive UPS systems or generators.
Here's some pictures:
