Just a thought. Does anyone think it would be possible to engineer some sort of waterwheel on a flood and drain system on the return to FT side of the plumbing to make and store power to run the system?

There is no free power. You can't produce more power than you use.

Helomech means that there's no such thing as perpetual motion, there's always energy loss. Could you recoup some of your energy through falling water? sure.. the people who have tried and reported back report that its not significant enough to be worth the effort.


I like this 2 minute youtube video.. it's not mine

What about a nice looking way to put air into the water?

if you want to avoid a air pump you can look into venturi effect on your water pump.

You can make them by pressing your butt cheeks in to a container of wet cement
