I've sourced all the components for a Figjam-style 5gal swamp cooler, but have come up totally short on the water pump. I leave for the playa this upcoming Friday, so don't have time to order one online (which is what I really should have done all along- shit).
Does anyone know where I might purchase an appropriate 12V DC pump in the Bay Area or Reno? I've tried every place I can think of, but the only pumps I've found are either much too large or AC only.
Alternatively, if anybody in the area has an extra pump they'd be willing to sell, please let me know!
Cheers- looking forward to keeping it cool with you all very soon!
My swamp cooler is a Coleman brand roofmount unit on my motorhome. I took out the AC and put that in. I've ran it for hours with no problem. The fan makes the noise. I can't tell the pump is running. I don't remember the amperage, but I chose it because the draw was low.
