I like the design, I am interested in How well it has worn, How many hours at a time do you run it and has the impeller had to be replaced? I al considering printing one for a small water feature and just wondering if it will destroy itself rather quickly if left on for a decent number of hours per day

how is the motor/shaft sealed ? Did you use grease for it or another rubber seal or something?

just used a good amount of silicone grease!

how high can this pump pump water?

I only see one tube for the water wich i suppose is the "out"
Were is the "entrance"for the water? i suppose is not a submersio pump so...
i'm curious :)

On the bottom there is a hole and groves. the idea is that this will sit in an inch or less (below the seal line) of water.
centrifugal pumps need to be primed, meaning the impeller has to be in water for it to be able to 'pump'.
hope this helps :)
