i haven't seen the tom's pump thing before (just looked at it). certainly interesting... i never found any decent stuff in my searches so i decided to suck it up and do this. it was a while ago... i was just too lazy to post the pictures up here!
i'd be interested in seeing the durability of these 15-dollar pumps, plus the actual strength (can these push liquid against gravity for 5-ish feet?)... but definitely good for the budget-minded (I know I would have jumped all over them when I was a poor college bum).
thanks for sharing!
Yeah, I think those cheap tom's dosing pumps are only rated for 30". I thought I read that somewhere. Head pressure is not as big of an issue for me cause I'm building an all in one inline Heater, CO2 Reactor, Liquid Ferts which will all be under the tank.
I'm actually working on a project that I use an air pump going into a gang value concept. The parts should be coming in this week.
