    Default A look inside

    Here's what the inside of a Goulds jet pump looks like for anyone that has ever wondered.

    That is a good cut-a-way but, most of the flow arrows are pointed the wrong way. Best picture I could find was at this link;

    I hope you make it a learning time for him...as mistakes are sometimes the best way to learn unless you are learning how to use explosives...then it is not good...

    Tell you the truth, I didn't notice it myself, I was just thrilled that he did something on his own. He's a good kid but he's on parole for truancy. This is the first quarter he has shown up every day so either the judge scared hell out of him, or he likes plumbing.

    A littel paint can fix the arrows and he will learn and remember how and why the water flows the way it does...how old is he...

    Personaly I would do this with him in private rather than in front of the whole class...

    Very nice and informative.

    I suggest it would be equally as nice to identify if it is a convertible jet pump or not.

    Maybe identify the internal parts too.

    That would be easy to do in Windows Paint and you could change the arrow directions and replace the original picture by editing the post.

    It's the kids project. He found the pump, took it to the machine shop, cut it up, painted it and put the arrows on. I think I'll let him re-paint the arrows himself. If he wants to label the parts, that's up to him. Either way, I thought he did a bang up job of the project even if he did mess up the arrows. But thanks for the 2 cents anyway.

    I'm just saying.. it would be more helpful for members here if the type of pump was identified and the internal parts were identified as to what they are, and you could do that in the Paint program.

    He didn't do it for the members here. I was impressed with his work and thought I would share it with the members here.
    But thanks for putting him in his place. I'm sure your criticism is just what the kid needs.

    No man I was talking to you about you, not him! Sorry for the confusion.

    He did a fine job but you, well, I'm just saying that you could identify what type pump, convertible or not and then label the exposed internal parts by editing the picture and reposting it.
