Hi guys,
I have ordered one of these pumps via eBay..
but thinking that 800L/H maybe too fast to cope with what I have planned.
My question is, Is it possible to construct a simple circuit maybe with a potentiometer and transistor like this...
Motor Speed Control.JPG

(or something similar) to regulate the speed of a Brushless Motor/Pump so that it will give a reduced litres per hour to about between 400 and 800 L/H or does it need a PWM speed controller such as this?...

What are your suggestions to control the speed of this brushless pump and subsequently reduce the litres per hour?

In the old forum software one had to tick a box to be able to post a necropost.
This tickbox now is gone and a necropost is more easy made.
When the necropost adds nothing to the thread or is spam, I will detele the post.
In this case I removed a spammer.
