Introduction: How to Make a Water Pump

About: Founder of Guy who always try to make innovative projects,check out what i made in my instructable..

This instructable is on how to build a mini water pump . The pump can be useful for small applications or just as a fun craft. One of the best things about this build is that almost everyone should have access to the materials needed as none of them are special parts. Before we start off I would also like to mention I used a less powerful motor so if you wanted your pump to have more pressure you would only need to use a powerful motor.
