The video tells it all.

A Pulley
A rope either knotted to just fit the pipe or you can knot sponges or rags to it to improve the lifting ability.

A suitably long pipe to reach the water supply.

The rope turns round the pulley in an endless loop

As the rope turns water is lifted up the pipe because the knots or rags fill up the space in the pipe, some leaks back but a lot gets lifted.

At the top the water just pours out of the outlet pipe.

i have made these with plastic drain pipes and PVC water pipes.

its very simple but it works and is LOW LOW tec.
It's also a very cool idea. I wasn't aware of this method, but I'm impressed.

This PDF tells an interesting story about building all sorts of pumps in Indian schools to teach engineering principles.
Thanks. I think I'm going to make one just to stick the idea "upstairs" for good. It's a brilliant solution to an old problem (granted, it's apparently also a very old solution as well @>1000yrs...)

I've been working on a seedling table and may incorporate one for giggles (rube goldberg value) to power my 'shower' watering grid, so I can keep the reservoir down below the lighting rather than perching it above to minimize potential crises.

Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance”
between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a fantastic job with this.

Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Opera. Excellent Blog!
on amaizing posts like this!!!
