Diaphragm Pump & Silicone Tube-plant-watering-870

Although the pumps are supplied with 1M of silicone tube, we also stock additional tubing in 5M lengths to cover those projects that require a little more. Both the pump and the additional silicone tubing are available to order in the shop now.  

Product Update Diaphragm Pump:

  Possible uses/projects include; a small aquarium pump, automatic plant watering system, making a water feature or music activated dancing water features to name but a few. when pumping a liquid the pump runs very quietly. The pump is also capable of pumping air, though when pumping air the pump is noisier, in comparison. The pump requires between 6 - 12V DC and between 0.5 - 0.7A and will deliver its maximum operating values when power is at the upper end of these ranges. 2567_large_r385_diaphram_pump_with_1m_of_silicon_hose_1
