Being Creative

Have a car that is dead? is your garden in need of wattering? or do you have hard to reach plants?
Well, if that car is dead and not going any where take out the pump that is used for cleaning the windshield OR go and purcahse a small pump and a container and some tubing.

Then you can create a minature irrigation system. you might need to find small "Sprayers" to attach to the thing and some conecters as well.
And then be creative. You can easily create a minature sprinkler system that can be used to water the garden.
This is a 12 volt motor using 5 volts instead of the full 12. That is one powerfull pump. I guess that is why they are not cheap to replace.
At any rate, I am planning to run this to our plants in those TopsyTurvys. I hate the fact when you try to water them things when there up to high .

At any rate it took an hour for the container to run out of water at 5 volts. Where as it being at the full 12, it will empty that container in 15-20 minutes.
Oh I am planning to adapt this for rainwater collection.
Oh this pump is fully sealed so It appears it can be submerged.

the Main story here is about being creative taking the time to try something new and daring to expiereiment.

It beats sitting an playing video games or wathcing the tube.It is also a great way to start a conversation with Neighbors.
