Re: Pump for cross-flow
- I agree Baker, if I had a radiator cooling setup like Harry mentions (which I tried) or any other setup that allows it, one could, as you say stack the business up to reduce the head height of the pump.

The pump in my setup does not get the benefit of the gravity pull of the water going down back the water tub either, so that extra work for the pump, plus I have 4 joiners that are slightly reduced in the in side bore which adds to the friction. Anyway that's my setup, it may give you some others things to consider.

- Or you can just look around,. Most people have them all over their homes. All you need is a transformer. Like the ones that are used to plug in cordless phones. Or Those Picture frames that have digital pictures. or what ever..Look on the taggs of the pump to see what the Amps are then Find a transformer that suits.. IF you don't have one at home Ebay, Or Radio shack has all you need any size you want..
Wire it up and plug it in.. Of course this is just my 2 cents worth. I sure there is other ways to handle this issue. but this one would only take a few minutes to fix;./ HTH Nameless "I forgot My Name"

You can get transformers from 110 to 12V, I saw one just the other day
while I was looking for something else and thought, "interesting, but
don't need that..." :)
