Engine Drive

How much horsepower is lost to an engine driven H2O pump?

I'm wondering what the benefits/drawbacks of an engine driven pump are as opposed to an electric driven pump. I know the cost is substantially more for the electric.

You could probably epect to spend a few hundred watts pumping water around an engine

It will take more energy to use the alternator with the extra amperage draw than it will to spin the water pump directly.

There is no significant advantage to using an electric water pump.
