Now in case you looked at the Web site, like I did, and saw the following data requirements,.......
2000–3000 RPM Maximum
Drill should have at least 350W rating
Hose diameter required: 20MM
Maximum inlet head: 6ft. vertical above surface
Maximum pumping head: 50ft.
Delivery pressure: 28 PSI
5/8in. fittings on both inlet and outlet
Can be used with:
Liquid Temp: 35–220 degrees F
................... when it talks about ''head'' (watch out now
) it is the way pumping requirements are expressed. 2.31 feet of water equals 1 PSI (pounds per square inch) or 2.31 feet of head. As I read this, it means this litlle guy will ''lift'' the fluid 6 feet of ''head'' and will pump it up to 50 feet of head. Divide the feet of ''head'' by 2.31 and you will have the PSI discharge of the pump at maximum. I don't know where the 28 PSI comes from unless it's from Lab tests which don't mean ''squat''.
If your eyes have rolled back in your ''head'',
Of course the amount of actual ''head'' this thing will deliver will greatly depend on the specific gravity and viscosity of the fluid, and the hose diameter and the friction loss of the inside of the hose and , and, and........
Steve, feel free to jump in here. I've had too many Martini's tonight to go any farther
