The Pump is a ingenious piece of tier 1 technology capable of ABSORBING liquids and compressing them into a cell with a minimal use of power!
Of course while it is absorbing all that liquid it will need somewhere to put it so we recommend buying our patented C-600 capsule cell container!
The pump can be placed next to a Miner to help it suck up lava encountered while mining, or the pump can be used on its own. A pump used on its own will suck up liquid directly below itself; this is probably not useful for lava, but can be useful for water since it respawns under the right conditions. Once the liquid has been sucked up, the pump will fill either an empty bucket or an empty cell placed in the pump's item slot or in an adjacent chest. The newly-filled item will be placed into an adjacent chest; if no chest is available, the item will be ejected into the world.
Additionally, the pump will automatically supply an adjacent compressor with water to make snowballs! BUGGED IN IC² 1.64
Pump need Fluid Ejector Upgrade to fill adjacent machine. Cells or Buckets are not mandatory to turn the pump on because it get an internal storage.

|1.23||A pump with a compressor adjacent to it can now automatically produce snowballs without cells.|
|1.64||Using the pump-compressor snowball functionality will crash Minecraft and corrupt your world if an Empty Cell is not placed in the top slot of the compressor for a placebo effect.|
