High air flow pump?
Hello, I am in need of an air pump for uses not related to aquariums (even though I love my fishies LOL). In short, I need a high airflow pump to apply water to a cabochon making machine. It needs to pump air through a "spitter" that uses air pressure to throw water in the pan up onto the wheels used to sand stones. I had an ancient Elite 810 that was barely adequate but has since worn out. I tried a Whisper 150 that wasn't even close to the Elite, it didn't have enough airflow to throw any water at all. Does anyone know of a very high flow pump? I suppose these would be called the deep water pumps, which is what the Whisper is advertized as.

What about a hobbyist-sized air compressor? Like what you would use for painting with an airbrush...My tanks:

pumps advertised for pond use are usually 'deep water' pumps and are very strong. stay away from the cheap aquarium brands like whisper and aqueon.your friendly neighbourhood arowanaman!
