That is the other pump from the other thread. I have one and it works great to push wort through my 1/4" CFC.

Has anyone used and submersed the submersible ones from lightobject? I am contemplating making a HEX coil in an electric water/tea kettle and was thinking I could just plop the 6v one right into the electric kettle to keep the water moving around?

How did you manage to get a flow? I was trying to.xfer from one carboy to another and had no success! Do you think it worked for you due to some gravity back pressure?

Yes, like any pump, (these are not vacuums) once it's primed it's fine. You will have to have it gravity fed or create some kind of suction on the out end to start the siphon.

i ordered one of these pumps and it came in last night. Wiring up with a power supply that i THINK matched, and it wont work. What did you use for power?

Never mind - i had my wiring backwards

I am an idiot when it comes to electricity.

I just picked up the 12V pump. Can I use a 5V, 2.5A power supply?

No. Find a proper 12v power supply. Shouldn't be that hard.

Out of curiosity, what would be the consequences?
