    Ideas needed, 3 pumps in serial

    For redundancy I was thinking about using 3 small pumps, like this, in serial:



    On top of that I'd like:

    1) the impellers to be visible through a clear plexiglas window
    2) the 3 pumps to be stacked together compactly into 1 unit
    3) robust, simple and solid construction

    Do you guys have an idea how I could do this?

    I would expect pumps in serial to loose effeciancy rapidly just like fans do. heh That's all.

    Serial adds up the pressures, that's what they all say...

    I just read the other post in that link and noticed some guy with an AMD 3000+ watercooled. The 3000+ isn't even out yet.

    Also, does anyone have any photos of this job completed by the guy in the other thread? All I see is the finished pump set not the install.

    *effeciancy* not pressure or flow.
