Good day! I am a newbie in Arduino and NodeMCU. I'm creating a project that aims to automatically use filter when a water container is dirty. I'm here to ask on how to supply power to a mini water pump I bought. Attached here are the specs of the pump.

You supply power to the pump from the main AC power. Possible use a solid state relay to turn the power on and off.

That fountain pump is very low pressure (maximum height to pump water is 0.6 m) and won't work at all with a dirty filter.

I would just use a relay .
The pump is a bit small ; a gnat could probably p** a better fountain .
