Free Power for 16 years from a modified Washing Machine / Water Wheel

रोजी प्रकाशित केले 10 मे, 2020
I've been living off grid for the past 16 years, I make my own electricity using an old washing machine I found at the dump.
I rewired the smart-drive washing machine motor to generate electricity, the generator is rotated via a water driven Pelton Wheel ( Hydro Turbine ).
Water goes into the intake, creates pressure due to the difference in height between intake and outlet nozzle. Water comes out of the nozzle at 60psi and spins the pelton wheel which is attached to the modified washing machine motor (now a generator).
The generator puts out 3 phase ac voltage which is passed through a 3 phase diode block rectifier to change it into dc, it is then fed directly into a 24v battery bank, a 24 - 240vac inverter is connected to the battery bank, 240vac travels up the power lines to my house. I can now power all my 240vac household appliances from the inverter
It makes enough power to heat my water and run all the appliances in my energy efficient house as well as most of the tools in my shed.
Occasionally I have issues with it and need to go down to the stream to problem solve, a small price to pay to avoid paying a power bill.

  • This man is in a league of his own. Incredible wisdom.....

  • This is the Way.

  • what are you using for generators? great vid, i wish i had a water supply, THANX!

    • An old smartdrive washing machine motor, rewired to produce more amps

  • He totally needs to hook up with the primitive survival tool guys.

  • Wow man as an American I got to say I am proud of you sir To you it’s nothing but to me it’s like building a spaceship LOL you’re a fucking genius I can’t believe I’m seeing this now? I will definitely share this video.And I will try to watch more of your videos to figure out how I can do this myself. Thank you for sharing if you’re ever in Boston Massachusetts look me up 👍🏼

  • 👉🏻 Title says 16 years, but the guy in the video says it was just 6 years ago. Intentional misleading header to increase monetized income from video? 🤔

    • Nope- 16 years free power from washing machine generators, 6 years on the current prototype turbine

  • The defective taxi traditionally trot because newsstand extracellularly flow upon a languid city. robust, testy italy

  • Fascinating and SO inspiring

  • I was wondering.. how high is the head of your system to get this pressure?

  • For those with a source of running water, this is a possibility. From what I understand, the flow of most streams and rivers is inadequate to fully run most houses. If you live near a waterfall or the rapids, you may have better luck. I didn't realize the cost of power cable was so great. The alternator/generator could be engineered for more power but without the power to turn the wheel, this is perhaps irrelevant.

  • Was this previously posted elsewhere? I swear I've seen this before years ago...

  • wow 16 years... that's solid

  • Idk if any of that would pass code but very enjunuitive

  • How do you go about learning this type of stuff

    • Sweet little things like google and youtube mate.

  • "Its probably on it's way out" *me thinking a couple years* "a couple hundred years or so" *surprised pikachu face*

  • Better hope the global warming environmentalist don't come down on you for having so much plastic abandoned pieces just laying around in that pristine nature. Other than that, pretty cool idea!

    • Ridiculous comment mate. Really try and think before posted nonsense.

  • That’s pretty cool 😎

  • very kewl

  • Thank you so much. From my family to yours forever love and prosper.

  • Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Heaven, there is no other way. Please get saved, time is running out. 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, saves lost souls, you only have to believe in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary to be saved. Please receive your free gift now, you have already been purchased, you only have to believe to receive your free gift of Salvation!

  • Well, you don't have few hundred yrs left! This old world is about to be no more!

  • This man has figured out life.. Bringing power to a place off the grid without a generator is pure genius !!! Can't wait to see more on this gem of a channel !!! Thank you for sharing this amazing tech.... God Bless 🙏

  • Nice , but you called it a river. That is a free stone stream

  • Awesome!

  • I know a bloke who built one of these years ago, in the mountains of Ukraine. Loved video games. I heard he had lots of bitcoins . Generated it to buy swords or some shit for a video game he loved playing. Don't know where he is these days

  • What a legend. Beautiful place too 😍

  • Right off the bat I’m just imagine this guy going back for his camera every time he drives by on the quad lol

  • Did he say how much water pressure he created with his piping? Psi v amps?

    • Yes he did, watch the video.

  • Am I the only one who thought that from the thumbnail it was some dude going to play the drums in the bush?

  • The first SETTLERS,or the first THIEVES,MURDERERS.How does one settle where others are already LIVING,let me guess by SLAUGHTERING them.

    • Yes the Moriori were a peace loving people, they didn't last long when the Maori's turned up

  • I think that, after the media crash, my favorite thing about an apocalypse would be the disappearance of gasoline - and four-wheelers. ROFL!

  • Instead of the check valve couldn't you just wire it to an automatic transfer switch

  • Brilliant mate.

  • I'm glad he's willing to share his experience 😀

  • Very cool brother, I have the perfect stream behind my house

  • I normally watch video games, science and ancient history channels. MRlevel algorithm decided to recommend this to me? They weren't wrong, loved it! Clever bar stewards.

  • Thank you for that video fascinating. May I wish you well.

  • More people shod be trying to figure stuff like this happen.if something big goes down most of the "men" in this country will be knocking on their neighbors door begging for help cause they never planned,no necessity and can't take care of their family..big respect to all the planners,thinkers and MEN out there

  • Amazing.. thats very good idea.....

  • Love it

  • This reveals how much money power companies make, and how relatively inexpensively they produce it.

  • What a genius.

  • i saw ur previous video years ago.. time is so fast.

  • .....a tool when Agenda 21 thickens

  • I'm sad that i'm stuck in Auckland city instead of in this awesome place!

    • Auckland is awesome. Mushroom season is about to start in a month or so.

  • Why do you go so far up stream for your intake? Why not have it closer? Im just curious. I think its all pretty amazing.

    • @Neil Minnnich John Mayer wrote a song about it.... "Gravity"

    • Thats what I was kinda figuring. Awsome set up.

    • To get more pressure

  • Shalom! 30 million Americans, and 40 percent of the United States' are running in "hydropower" already..... Maranatha 👍

  • Great video! Very informative! I don't know how the prospecting is where you're at? But it looks to me like you're walking all over decaying bedrock in that creek bottom there? You ever take a couple of sample pans out of there?

  • Wow bro that is bad ass...thanks for hooking it up with the off grid info

  • Was that just an old fischer and paykel?

    • Yes F&P smartdrive

  • WOW! Subscribed.

  • I know he showed us a bunch of moving and working machines but where's the proof that this generates power?? I never saw any power lines converters or anyting

  • tidy up that area sunshine..... Loved the video until I saw the sate and mess you left behind...

    • I like to keep my spare parts nearby sport ;). It may look like a mess but I like to recycle what others consider junk, most of the parts used to make this turbine came from the dump

  • Pretty slick

  • very interesting.. maybe could do same by attaching blades and turning into wind turbine if you geared it appropriately?

    • Yes these motors make good wind turbines

  • They're promoting that human Genome/fetus fuel Pepsi when I cam to this video. Be weary people.

  • Motion energy at its wildest

  • Now that's cool!

  • [Applause]...

  • Good job. You have about 20 amps of continuous power 24/7, that is good. Why do you need batteries?

    • 20 amps x 24v is 480 watts, if I need to us a high load appliance like a kettle (2000w) the batteries make up the extra 1520w until the turbine can catch up

  • Nice setup nd beautiful area

  • Good video but not everyone can do this

  • Brilliant !

  • Chur brother!! In the Ngahere!!

  • Protect this man at all costs

  • Necessity ...the mother of invention.

  • Very cool, very inventive. That said, I couldn't help but wonder if your overall maintenance demands, performance consistency, etc. wouldn't be improved in general by making things a little sturdier and more secure. For example, ensuring a good slope of the pipe runs, addressing flow restrictions / pinches in them. Making more stable equipment platforms with small (layered?) bases of bricks, or paver stones. Maybe also some rudimentary covers / enclosures for the equipment, to help keep it from getting mucked up so much. I know it's in the woods and all, and there are budgetary considerations, but that's something I would do, personally. I'm all about taking care of the equipment. As inventive as you are, I'm sure it'd be easy for you. Namaste.

  • Dangerous. People with inventions like this go missing

  • That stream isn't a stream it's a trickle and this guy powers his house with it.

  • During the apocalypse this man would survive definitely

  • These new mine craft mods are getting insane

  • Crikey! You are the NZ mad max!

  • Look at all the money you've saved. Good on you! Whoever is close to a water should do this. Govt shouldn't have a say in how you come about your power. Honestly, who the hell do they think they are? The water, land, air, is our best friend. So do with it exactly what these multi-billion dollar companies do: create hydro.

  • Power companies hate him!

  • Rick, and Marty.

  • I need his masterclass... I will pay but i doubt he needs cash.

  • Yes, as we say we Kiwis have we have this number 8 wire mentality, if there is a way to make something because there are no alternatives available we will find away around the problem, just like you have done with your water supply. People seem to think alternative power supplies are a new thing yeah nah. Okay there was no solar power that I know of, but we definitely had water and wind power backyard style lol. Love your video 👍

  • Pretty clever guy, that's some real power.

  • I sat until a cigarette I just lit went out by itself as I sat after clicking your video and absolutelywife mouthed stared in amazement, superb little system there..then I finished the cigarette as I enjoyed the comments ,lol cheers!

  • Show the house and how you get the wires there.

  • Free elections are the best electrons. I’ve got the power⚡️

  • Dear Marty: I want to appreciate your ispiration. I bought a little farm in the fields and nedded to cut the grass. I opted for the "Marty Solution". Bought a $50 Briggs Stratton grass cutter and I am ready to repair it... Regards.

  • Beyond Awesome!!!

  • That was so cool. That sounded righteous when it started back up. Good job and thank you for the cool video!

  • The tyrannical US government won't let me do anything like this in my woods...

  • Obama is in his 10 million bunker in NZ probably right next door mate.

  • Fantastic Idea! Giant hydroelectric dams can actually be very damaging to the environment. We need more waterwheels.

  • The kindly beech neurobiologically replace because income possibly improve anenst a wanting beef. tough, handy queen

  • Okay has he turned a drill into a dynamo? GJ Nikola

  • In genius! I am from West Virginia, America. At a place named Beckley. Lot's of ridges. Coal country. A few people that still live in the middle of nowhere that might be able to use something like this. Mountain People. Very rural close nit people still. Laid back and slow living for the most part still. Thanks. Enjoy and be blessed. :-)

  • how'd he upload off the grid does he have his own internet network

  • Cool I have one too But it runs on Coffee .....sipping says BackyardSKY 🌐

  • That’s awesome!!!! Really enjoyed the video!

  • C L E A N E N E R G Y _You, sir, are the man with a plan!!!_

  • you are a genius, mate .............

  • Is there a video of how you built this? Would love to learn.

  • Amazingly doing this in the uk is illegal. So much for a country that keeps waffling on about green energy.

    • @David S all things considered fuel you just pay a tax duty to the tax man. Hence creating such a thing you'll be liable for tax if you don't pay well you do the math. And yes the uk is a messed up country if you look behind the dotted lines.

    • Why is this illegal?

  • The question is why in the hell are we paying a electrical 💸 bill

  • Love the sound of the tui birds

  • Blows me away what people can due with a bit of ingenuity. Very very cool man. I take my hat off to you.
