gustavio101 made it! (author)2015-04-18

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 want to start this motor with battery. Is it possible

yes it is possible... just use a 9v battery (is not to much) or put 2-4 1,5v batteries in series.. connect the same way as you did with other power source

What size motor did you use?

it is normal motor which use in toys.

debycoles (author)2011-12-25

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?

Thasya (author)2011-09-29

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

Vijster1 (author)2011-08-11

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

sgoel2 (author)2011-07-23

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

viggen23 (author)2011-07-17

Looks great, will try this as soon as possible. Thanks for sharing man.

raza896 (author)2011-07-12

Thanks man. I was looking for this. I have prepared a small model of a village on a board and i just want to run the whole village on Solar power. So this thing i was missing because i want to add a running tubewell in this model of village. Thanks again

baudeagle (author)2011-02-08

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)?

watch this

Thanks, it looks like it works like a charm.
