    8mm Rainbar with pump or Air lift pipes?

    I am trying to built a eco filter system with minimal (paid) power consumption.

    So I have got a OHF, and a mini water pump powered by USB. The problem I am facing now is that the pump outlet is only 8mm and I can't seems to find 8mm piping, L-joint and rainbar.

    Anyone knows where I can get them for sure?

    Alternatively, I also bought a USB power air pump. Is it possible to build a air lift system to work with OHF?



    The final stage will be to power either of this device to a solar panel which will be powering it and hopefully will be self sustaining in the balcony.

    You can build an airlift with any air pump, if you size the upflow tubing properly. Just try it first... hold a rigid tubing under water, and insert the air tubing into the bottom of it, and see how high above the water you can get the water to pump up to.
