This pump was made for a Glasgow School of Art Project, "Hydro Do That?". We were divided into groups of 4 and have to design and make a device that can lift 5 litres of water up 60 cm within 5 minutes. The device with the highest efficiency wins.
We were only given a 24V DC motor with 3500RPM to start with.
Groups were named after sea creatures and our group was the "Clown Fish".
After researching, we think that a Rope Pump will be the most efficient water lifting device we can make in the workshop.
