RE: [IP] Re: magnets and pump - new question

These Magnets are not strong enough to hurt the pump.  I talked with a EE
professor at WPI and he informed me that you would need a really large sized
electromagnet or a fixed magnet weighing approximately 1.5 tons to create a
field strong enough to damage the pump

Subject: [IP] Re: magnets and pump - new question

Hi folks,
To all of those pumping moms and dads out there...

We're using Tot Lok magnets to secure our cupboards (childproofing magnets).

They are quite strong. I try not to put the key magnet in my pocket, but
just wondering how concerned I should be. Has anyone ever had an issue with
these magnets and pump programming?
