i need to make a silent water pump using basic parts. help? Answered
i havent got much at my disposal, ive got tubing, glue, and brushless fans.
i have tested with distilled water and the fans do not short out from being in contact with it, nor do they appear to be rusting or locking up.
i have tried using a standard fan to make a simple pump, but with no decent results. the way i have it set up is the bottom is covered, and a tube is exiting out the side of the fan shroud. it is angled so that the fan blades should be pushing the water into the tube, but the water is just staying in the fan shroud. i currently have a CD as the intake, using the hole in the middle as the intake and the rest of the cd covering the other side of the fan. i was wondering if theres a way to make it work with a normal fan, and if i can do that, how do i need to have the hose set up?
if its impossible to do with a regular fan, i know a blower fan will work, since water pumps have basically the same setup on the inside.
i have a feeling the blades themselves are playing a big role in where the water is going.
any help is appreciated!
