Default Home made peristaltic pumps

I have just tested this pump, and at 120 RPM got a flow rate of 4 USGPM or 15 litres!

I hope no one minds me re-posting this here as I put it in the wrong place initially ("peristaltic pumps" in the equipment section.) And I do not know how to rename the title or move it, so perhaps a moderator could do that for me and put the previous posts here instead.

I will follow this up with more details if there is interest in others constructing these pumps, but for now it is looking very promising, and cheap.

What is the ID and length of the tubing you are using? The 4 GPM is a very impressive flow rate for a peristaltic pump and motor of this size.

Very nice. I would like to see more. Also a volume test with the outlet 3 feet above the pump.

Best part is, it doesn't take up much room!

I'd be interested in building one of these as well, throw it on the stack of projects to do
