so this thing pumps water how much head , or height or pressuer or psi or gph or lpd ? all those things arent exactly super ez to measure ..
is it like a micro fish pump or backyard pond pump for water fountain intent ?

Also: There's no such thing as "free energy".

survey said ... what is free energy ... what is wind ? ... what is water flow (gravity) ? ... for $500 what is light coming from the sun that can be converted to electricity with a PV ? yes the wind catcher costs, the water wheel has initial investment as well as the ever falling cost of solar cells/panels .. but the energy they harvest is naturally occurring, no one pays for gravity nor solar (the wind is a form of solar energy).

Those things you mention are of course all real working things. :) I've all too often heard "free energy" used as a euphemism for "perpetual motion" is all.

The best comparison I can make is it acts like a cruder version of this little gear-pump:

Like a gear pump, it has little suction and much better push, and should be primed before use. Like a gear pump it will leak backwards if you turn it off. And like any other displacement pump, its forward pressure is only limited by the strength of the motor and the quality of its seals.

I suppose I should note that the top and bottom plexiglass(actually acrylic) cracked eventually. Real plexiglass is probably better.

hey , thats' nice, and like u said, putting something up with out actually testing it --- well there should be a disclaimer ! i have seen some real neat designs, they did say they didnt make it , i made it and .. wastn really sure how it worked ah well, i should have asked before printing the kilowatt generator ~!~!~
