I made one, but a bit different, I haven't tested in water so far but it should be waterproof so that the motor will last longer.

I love this idea, but I'm a complete newbie to the site and the idea of making my own bits and pieces. Can you give me some ideas where I might be able to scrounge or reclaim one of these little 12v motors. What sort of products might I find them in?

How bout of we use a solar panel instead of using the nokia charger? Would it work?

I built a floating model that pumps water out and pushes it through a tube to the top of the pump (above the water).

Do the size of lower cap matters in working of the pump?

How long did this work when you put it in water?

Could you post a picture of it running and moving water?

What was the flow rate Liters/min (gallons/min)?
