    Water Pump for Cooling Shirt

    I don't know about how anybody else does it but I made my cooling shirt set-up out of a small water jug with a screw on top, drilled holes near the top for the suction and return lines and then used a pump I bought off of Ebay which was a Shurflo SLV10-AA41 and is a 1.0GPM 40PSI, 12V 4Amp. My wife made the shirt out of a regular work shirt and sowed about 30 feet of 1/4" tubing into the inside of it, front and back. I have a pair of quick connects inline also. Ice in the jug, a couple of inches of water and a switch on the dash. Sometimes I have to turn it off because it can get too cold at times, even in the heat.
    I had to insulate the water lines between the pump and the shirt to keep them from dripping condensation. Works well.
    Just saying.

    I work with Mike Bell and he wears a cool shirt from Speedway motors. It uses a can of freon to cool the shirt. Pop on a new can push the button instant cool. He gets rid of the can before they fire the car. It is maybe $200.00 and he buys the cans by the case. Works awsome.

    Usually a can per run, but well worth it and no mess with water, hoses, pumps, not including the extra weight in the car.

    He buys a case at a time from Stonersolutions.com. It is not on the website but they have a direct replacement can. They run $8.00/can with free Fedex shipping. 12/ case.

    It will be the best $8.00 bucks u will spend when u tap that button.LOL
