Great! Speed Controller.

I had bought a second speed Controller from High Plains Prospectors. And the second one is just as reliable as the first. I am using a 1000 gallon an hour pump, with a 10"×36" sluice box with micro dream mat. And once I found the perfect speed through the adjustable speed Controller. This, makes going through my concentrates more enjoyable. Thank you! High Plains Prospectors. For a great, reliable piece of this prospectors puzzle.

Things you don’t know you need

This speed control has helped me understand the flow of water and how it works in the mining field. I am still new and learning speed and pitch with the water and sluice box. Don’t definitely helps.
