Pond pump reducing adapter by sharv999 Dec 19, 2012

Description

I needed to reduce the internal diameter of my fish pond pump outflow port from 22 mm to 12 mm to suit the existing hose setup so I designed this reducing fitting. You can change the diameters in the OpenSCAD to suit your own installation. My first OpenSCAD to STL project :-)

Yep - agreed. Not the most elegant fluid mechanics solution but it was a good introductory exercise in OpenSCAD :-) Thanks for the comment!

This is neat, but it will put more stress on your pump, reducing it's life and maximum head, but if those don't matter, it's perfect!

I cheat in my pond and use old garden hose on my pump output.
