This unique hydraulic ram pump made from stainless steel and will last for a very long time. Pump designed for 35 gpm water flow, 12 ft water drop and 2.5 drive pipe 100 ft long. Pump will deliver water over 150 ft high with no electricity or any other power source beside the running water its self. In ideal condition this pumps can deliver water up to 300 ft high. I design and build these pumps for specific installation situations and since there are no two the same, some small adjustments could be necessary for pump to work at it best at your location.
I will be glad to give a consultation if necessary. The best water source for this pump is a large spring or a creekCan be easily converted to 2:1 pump. Pump assembled on Sanitary Try-Clamp Clamps and can be taken a part in the matter of minutes. To start pump waste valve has to be pushed 10-15 times before chamber build up the pressure.
DO NOT PUSH IT WITH YOUR FINGERS!! 2.5 pipes mostly used for swimming pools, so it is not a big problem to get them. To use a ram pump, you must have a source of water situated above the pump.
For example, you must have a sprig on a hillside so that you can locate the pump below the spring. You run a pipe from the spring to the pump. The pump has a valve that allows water to flow through this pipe and build up speed. Once the water reaches its maximum speed, this valve slams shut. As it slams shut, the flowing water develops a great deal of pressure in the pump because of its inertia.The pressure forces open a second valve. The pressure in the pump falls. The first valve re-opens to allow water to flow and build up momentum again. For this particular pump I do not recommend water sours more than 12 ft above the pump. You can see that the one big disadvantage of a ram pump is that it waste a lot of water. The rest flows out of the pump as the water builds momentum.
The good news, Rum pump do not disturb the environment because the most of water will flaw the same way it was before the installation. The idea of using the energy of flowing water has been around for a long time! There is nothing magical happening in a ram pump. This design has only two moving parts. It is very simple and reliable devise based on natures phenomena called hummer effect.The item "HYDRAULIC Ram Water Pump Off the GRID Creek, Spring, Pond Hydro power" is in sale since Sunday, July 17, 2016.
