Step 8: Ideas for Improvements...
There are various ways that this design could be improved.
Here are some ideas.
Use a single length of hosepipe for the entire device.
Increase the diameter of the hosepipe.
Increase the number of coils around your "waste-basket".
Use something larger than our wastebasket to make your pump.
Experiment with differing rotation speeds.
Experiment with differing angles of delivery of water.
Design a rotating seal to fit into the system between the waste-basket and the pipe to the collection bowl.
Design a rotating mount for the pump to more easily control and experiment with rotation speeds.
There are probably a lot more improvements that can be made - we've only just begun with our investigation of this pump.
Here's our idea for V2.0 in a short video clip (4.6Mb) .... we'll report the results when we have them.
Best of luck, and enjoy!
