Despite its name, the Water Pump can also harvest Sulfuric Acid from Sulfuric Acid Oceans.
Raw Material Cost
The raw materials required to build 1 Water Pump are:
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
