Summary

The Water Pump is used to extract Water from a Water Ocean and directly deposit it to a Belt.

Despite its name, the Water Pump can also harvest Sulfuric Acid from Sulfuric Acid Oceans.

Additional Notes

Upon exceeding the maximum transport capacity of the Conveyor Belt Mk.III the output of the Water Pump will be piled. This happens after reaching Veins Utilization Level 351 (3610% mining speed), when mining speed becomes 1805. Since then the output cargo will be output in two-stacks when needed. Increasing the Water Pump output by every additional 1800 items/min will raise the stacking limit by 1 (up to 4), and a Mk.III belt with 4-stacked items will be fully saturated when reaching Veins Utilization Level 1430 (14400% mining speed).

The stacking limit will apply regardless of the connected belt tier.

Player Tips & Tricks

Here's a formula for determining how many water pumps you need to fill a belt:

P = (6 * Bs) / (5 + (0.5 * Vu))
P = Pumps
Bs = Belt Speed (in items/second)
Vu = # of Veins Utilizations Upgrades completed
