Unexpected aspects of vortex power! The water actually goes quicker through it when a turbine is added. Who would have thought? Originally I made this to show the integrated fish pass.
Due to the surprises, I probably will not get that far in this version!
However, it has been an incredibly fast learning experience!
Combines a 15 watt solar panel (No batteries HURRAH), a 12 volt bilge pump, a storage container and bicycle spokes to make a semi decent model of the thing!
