Grid Runner... Isn't that a Neil Stevenson Novel? I think I remember reading it.

Gridrunner was an old Commodore 64 game, not sure if that's the reference.

Here's a review :P

Here's a demo of a newer version, it's worth downloading just for the sounds, turn up the speakers to 11!

Do you have to worry about efficiency if you are running an air pump anyway for aeration - If you can use this air for lifting while achieving good aeration then the difference in efficencies between the air lift and waterpump don't count for much.
trying to design a geyser pump that can actually lift much above the depth of the supply is a harder task.

:oops: ... I'm sorry... I just couldn't resist it... :mrgreen:

JohnH ... the question of efficiencies of various pumps and pumping methodologies... has been debated long and hard within various threads on the forum...

Particularly air-lift and geysers pumps...IMO.. they have their place... go for it...
