3-6V Submersible Water Pump Water Pump DC Pump 5v Submersible Water Pump This is a low cost, small size 5V Water Pump which can be operated from a 2.5 ~ 6V power supply. It can take up to 120 liters per hour with a very low current consumption of 220mA. Just connect tube pipe to the motor outlet, submerge it in water and power it. Make sure that the water level is always higher than the DC Pump. Dry run may damage the motor due to heating and it will also produce noise.

Low voltage – submersible water pump
The main advantages of this 3-6V DC Submersible Water Pump its their operating current, because it is so low they can power directly by the Arduino 5V outputs, making a very simple set-up that will make it easier and faster for prototyping of your automated watering system.
There are many water pumps available on the market, from the cheaper to more expensive, but there are basically two options of 5v submersible water pump.
submersible water pump for Prototypes:
This pumps are cheap and useful for prototyping but they wont last very long under intensive work load, so they are good for prototyping and projects that require watering from time to time and not a continuous water flow. If you plan to have a continuous water flow, go for a better one.
