DC12V, 700mA max, 8L/min, head 3M
24V V6 6M
DC24V, 800mA max, 12L/min, head 6M

Working Life
1. 4.5 years - 100 degree C boiling water 24x7 non stop operation
2. 22 years - daily run 5 hours
3. 10 hours no water run 10 hours without damage (conventional pumps dry run 1 hour would be damaged).

Rooftop Garden and Home Water Pressure Learning Notes

I know nothing of the water pressure at home, and rooftop where I am building a smart garden. So I googled.

Now I know it is about 40 to 60psi.

I am thinking a buying a cheap cheap water pressure gauge, so that I can measure the performance of the water pump and water valve used in my musical fountain / water feature project.

My googled readings are jotted down in the penzu journal entry below.

Water Pressure Meter

Now I have bought a water meter to check out how the booster pump is doing.

https://penzu.com/p/d3890d4d

It took me almost an hour to do the amateurish plumbing work of putting the pressure meter on the piping. Then I turned on the tap to find that the pressure in my home
is 20 something.

But I don't what 20 stands for. Is it mPa or PSI?

I need to google again. :mrgreen:
