Hi Forest,, I use Hailea HX 1500 pumps in my RTA trays and buckets etc.. as they are cheap, suck from the bottom and take a standard 12-13mm pipe,

if you get one glue the attachment for it onto the pump tho as its not a tight fit and remove the flow regulator from the bottom, its a lever,

Theyve worked for me for a good 3 years and still going. 

Can find them on ebuzz etc,, easy to get hold of.

Hope that helps.

ok thanks fellas i wish id had the foresight to fashion a sump in the tray  , next time if that ever comes around ,

 

i have one of those plastic hand  pumps for oils and fuel with pipe that kinks all the time   , today i had lots of sucking noise and some waste in the bowl but  it really needed doing  slowly to keep the pipe under the level and not suck  air  , it needs a better solution

yep, totally understand, ive just tested one on a big flat 1m tray... nope it didnt suck it all up, I use Airpot RTA Trays and they are deep enough plus you can add a pipe to it for draining to a external pump and to connect other trays too.

so apologies my friend, your right, those little pumps are toosh for big flat shallow trays.

 

lol @ the sponge, yeah ive been there, my friend uses a Henry hoover, one that sucks up water to empty his trays with. does a good job but noisy as hell.

I 2nd the hoover! :lol:

 

I don't know if you can get these @ Forest ?

 

I can sit it on a 6 gallon sheetrock type bucket and it will suck up at least 3 gallons before it needs emptying.

 

Little flat nozzle fits in tight spots, and yeah, it's noisy.

 

I put a muffler on mine, but it still let's everyone know when it's on!

 

This is what I used to use. Quiet, but sort of a pain to move around, and the impeller wore out. A pos that wasn't cheap! :angry: Maybe there's better ones?

thats clever , not seen them here ,  to big  sadly   the sponge is looking like  its going to be the tool or a baster ,

 

what about little air moving  fans?  any one got a 6inch fan that lasts ? all the ones ive tried dont last long
