Most people make a gear pump. Very simple to make and they move a ton of water.



Do not be like the cat who wanted a fish but was afraid to get his paws wet.

Ahaa! That looks good and easier to make than an impeller maybe. Thank you Sir. :cheers:

Given that the water goes round the outside of the gears (of course!), I've often wondered if it is beneficial to flare out the delivery and exit of the  waterways.
