A working water pump

A project log for Autonomous watering system

This system decides how much water your plants need according to its sensors and internet weather stations and controls a pump to water them

Initially I got an underpowered pump. It also would allow water to pass through, which would empty my water tank! But fortunately I found the right pump on eBay, and it was pretty cheap too:

It's a diaphragm pump, theoretically it can get you 80PSI but don't count on it. It doesn't draw nearly as much power as it says either. But it's just the right size for my purposes!
