Re: RS-25 turbo pump

"To put this into context, the UK rivers authority own 2 extra-large pumps for flood clean up. Each does 500 kg/sec - at much lower pressures too - and each completely fills the loadbed of a large articulated lorry."

To be fair, those include the generator, motor, fuel tanks and filters too. And they are built to last more than a few minutes of use.
