* This pump operates on Bernoulli's principle. An ideally-designed water jet pump would provide a vacuum limited only by the vapor pressure of water, given sufficient water flow. Theoretically, better vacuum is achieved with cold water; at 15C the vapor pressure of water is about 12.8 mm Hg, and at 10C the pressure is about 9.2 mm Hg.

Additional Notes:

Despite their simplicity, aspirator pumps produce enough vacuum to present an implosion risk.  Do not underestimate their power.  Wear eye and face protection when working with vacuum.

Vacuum performance, as well as chemical resistance of polypropylene, generally decreases with higher temperatures.
