Found Something For The Amanco To Run

Post by Abes on Sat Aug 24 2013, 08:56

Was on the look out for something for the Amanco to run and out of the blue this fell in my lap (lol and yes it hurt), a few of you will know who had it and did the great job on the trolley, should look pretty good together and should get an airing this Monday all being well

Managed to source a new tank for the pump last week (came in the yard) so with that in mind thought id redo all the pipe work too as not to keen on the galvanised set up (like a bit of copper), so managed to source some 35mm copper pipe and fittings and with a bit of soldering the jobs almost complete just the legs for the tank to make then a coat of paint, will put some pics up tomorrow

That's a great looking set up and some real craftsmanship on the trolley - one question Ihave been meaning to ask is what kind of head of water can those pumps lift - any ideas? And when they have lifted it how far will they reasonably pump up ( in terms of bar pressure or metres/ feet) no other reason to ask but curiosity!

Either way you will no doubt enjoy it!

to be fair we dont actually know Hamish i have the bigger brother of this pump and while pumping if you put your hand in the tank near the pipe it sucks your hand to the pipe and its a bit of a pull to get hand off the pipe .
