Where can I learn more about building a RAM-pump?

Original message posted by Joshua Jones on 11-30-06.

I had a friend show me once a pump that would push water up a mountain slope without using any type of electricity. He called it a RAM pump, and I was wondering if anyone knew more about these or where to find plans to make one?

Hello Joshua, The ram pump can be a little complicated. I have some plans for some homemade pumps I have made from black well pipe. They work very well and are very inexpensive to build. My family and I live in Creel, Mexico providing drinking water to the Indegenous Indians. For more info check our website. www.angelfire.com/amiga/downinmexico

Www.lifewater.ca/ram_pump.htm I would contact Lifewater. It is a Christian organization. Here is a diagram: http://www.thefarm.org/charities/i4at/lib2/hydrpump.htm
