After I posted that, I went back to look at their website and that's when I
noticed that it's rated at two [tenths] of an amp, not two amps. Even More
These old eyes don't see leading decimal points as well as they once did.
However, the MAIN question was about that 190 G.P.H., and thanks for the
quick response. The very first part of my new distilling setup is going to
be one of those little pumps, while they're on sale.
At ten bucks a pop, I may even buy a spare!
By the time shipping is added to their $18 website price, my $10 [plus tax]
will come out to about half price.
That 24 watts will be less than a whole drop in my electric bill's bucket,
and being a fountain pump, I don't have to worry about it really being
designed to run for an hour or two at a stretch, while pumping water out of
a basement or something.
