job for long at least a 1/12 which draws 1.1 amps at a cost of 10to15
dollers amonth .When the carbon builds up your 1/20 wount cut the mustard
.I'm running 110 tanks with 130 outlets.& air to spare Trust me Karl

polution pump. I know there are many detractors from this type of system.
But Norm R. has built one succesfully and I like the idea of building it.

>>>The power of 1/20 horse unleashed as 1300/1600 rpm in a clockwise
direction when fed .68/.76 amps of 120 VAC, 50/60 Hz single phase
electricity. GE No. 5KPM49PG394X continuous duty, thermally protected. <<
>I don't know the maximum number of tanks it can handle. I think Norm has
just under 2 dozen and has air to spare.
>BTW, the biggest complaint about this design is the noise. Norm has
discovered that most of the noise comes from the vibration of the unit
itself. He has minimized the noise by resting the entire contraption on a
skab of styrofoam.
