with that 12v I could afford to build a reasonably cheap single tier system, I was planning on doing a two tier with gravity giving me a hand.

Those pumps have a purpose, but I am not sure brewing is one of them. The one pictured is next to a dime, its purpose is to circulate water in a waterbath, it won't move water from one tank to another very well.

That's the one I use to recirc in my HEX. It does what its rated for...29 gal/hr with a lift of 3'. A nice little pump for the money.

I would hit the thrift stores and look for something in the 12v 1A range. Otherwise I would use a computer power supply.

Got my pumps today. Here's a picture of both of them. I'll try to get them setup today and see if I can shoot a video of them doing their thing.

Great find. I wonder how they work for brewing purposes? They are tiny though.

And here's the video for the dc12v 108G/hr pump. Sorry the video sucks, no tripod, the lights are poor and I was too excited to get them tested asap


Works really well!
