Project Danger Den Water Box Plus Case Review (Part 2)


Closer Look:

This water pump comes with a power cord that measures just over three feet. With that kind of cord length, mounting this pump in a large case presents no problems; there is enough length to reach across pretty much any case on the market. Mounting the pump can be accomplished two ways; using the supplied velcro or mounting it to the case with screws and rubber washers to isolate the vibration from the pump.





The DD5 is offered in two different styles; one where flow rate is not adjustable and the one we have chosen where the flow is adjustable. The settings on the pump are 1 through 5, with 5 being the preferred setting.

So far we have seen two pieces of the project, both of which have been chosen for the performance they will deliver with the system we have chosen. We will continue to bring you articles on each part of the system, culminating with the final build and performance testing of our project. Stay tuned! Next up the radiator and tubing!(Project Danger Den Part 3)

If you missed out on part one of this series you can find it right over here!(Project Danger Den Part 1)!
