Yea all I use is a 12 volt flojet pump which is connected direct to my 5,000 gal rainwater tank then I put a return back to the tank at roof level in my shed along with a non return valve to prevent siphoning back. I bought a $10 DC controller and found I can run my bubbler on about 35% with the controller.

What do you mean by that mate? 35% element power?

Na mate the DC controller is a voltage controller and I found running it on 35% gives enough flow to cool both the RC and PC. The beauty of using a DC motor is the lower the voltage the lower the flow but one does need a decent pump to start with.
