Another interest solar power water distiller

I like this build a bit better than others I have seen.  This one you can “stand up” easily.  Downside…still hard to get end result water out. https://www.instructables.com/id/Solar-Powered-Water-DistellerFilter/

Nice little mini water pump

Nice build that you can print out with a 3D printer for a really small water pump.  Just not so sure I would have a need for such a small one.  I have to say it is pretty impressive. http://www.instructables.com/id/Mini-Water-Pump-1/

Adding a pool skimmer extension

OK this is going on the list of things to make.  It basically extends the skimmer to suck up water toward the bottom of the pool to get out the guck in the water.  I have made a few gizmos … Continue reading

Convert CD motors to work underwater

Nice write up on how to convert a motor to run underwater.  I wonder how many you “fry” before you get it right. https://www.instructables.com/id/DC-Motor-ROV/
