extreme pumpless water cooling! - Page 2  

post #11 of 29
There is lots of lime in tap water, along with a lot of other impurities. A pump in a typical water cooled loop doesn`t take as much juice as a low wattage light bulb. So, I don`t see any savings here, just a whole lot more expense and hassle of piping and water maintenance.

Acutally, well water has a ton of disolved minerals in it, just doesn't have all the nasty additives of city tap water. You would still end up getting a lot of deposits in your lines.

Not to mention the giant waste of water lol.
Tap water is full of chlorine, and other Chemicals to get the germs out. Even though they use all these chemicals there are still germs that can hurt you, and\\or your components...

So not a good idea....

Imagine how many fish you would leave homeless after using all that water

Just some numbers I pulled off the web ...


If you pull back your faucet to allow only 1 cup of water a minute of flow ... that's 90 gallons a day.

I realize that you won't have it running continuously , but when you do I'm quite certain you'll be using a lot more than 1 cup a minute ... so lets call it balanced at this point.

wastewater costs approximately $0.01 - $1.25 per gallon to treat depending on where you live and the treatments used ... so let's average that out to somewhere in the middle ... at $0.75 per gallon.

Basic math stuff here ... $0.75 x 90 gallons = $67.50 per day

Extra low end ... .01 x 90 = $0.90 per day = $27.00/month = $324.00 per year ... at the absolute lowest possible cost ... that's a waste of money.

Again, the need for dismantling and cleaning your blocks on a regular basis due to the corrosion and buildups that will occur from the tap water are reason enough to stay away from it.

Its a huge waste of money because, you have to pay for the water but, what will end up killing you is the sewer costs...

I guess I should have elaborated ... my numbers are the wastewater costs ... not the water costs themselves.

As long as the warm water was somehow utilised by the boiler it would work a charm.

However there must be another simpler way, imagine a Sand timer, you just need to turn it the other way up every day or something lol
