Anyone tried a small circulating pump on there generator?
I was wondering about trying a small circulating pump on a generator to keep it cool. Run it to a reservoir and even a little heat exchanger before going back to the gen.

Would this work or would I ruin the HHO making process.
Just an idea

If you need a cooling pump then your design is flawed. You can also use thermal siphon by making a reservoir and mounting it higher then the cell, then modify your cell so it fills from the bottom and the gas exits the top back to the reservoir below the water line, this acts as a bubbler as well.

Seems like all the problems with open bath cells are overheating, I dont want to run mine at 8-10 amps(not enough gas production) so I was thinking a pump would work to keep it cool, so I can run it at 15-20 amps.

I would conserned about the electrolyte destroying the pump.
