There is also another green water powered pump claiming to be the "Most Powerful Water Powered Pump in the World" on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKDym5sWpsc

Also - question... Do you really need the bike tire in the tank? Wouldn't the pressure automatically build up due to the hammer force? In reference to the first question earlier - I do also have a large 275 gal tank - through a two stage system - first 'drop' fills the 275 gal tank that is raised (higher than the creek line), then empty that into another pump to send it up the hill...
Love that wagon!! Not sure about the log -- the farmer that redid the crossover recently, put in two 24 inch culverts. Was just rocks... He also widened the down stream a little . When there were heavier rains, the creek upstream would overflow the bank and wash down the field (up stream about 1/4 mile). I might be able to do a one foot raise with a log... Another thought I had when I saw something to 'repurpose' was an orange caution cone (the kind you see by vehicles and drive lane guidance). Basically a funnel - would that help with pressure / fall? Attached is a look upstream.
Very nice! Beats the 3 cubic yard trailer I use now - and most of the water sloshes out.... watering everything in between the water source and the flowers -- ;)
Thanks for your information!! I have a small creek on the property, but it is at the lowest point as well. If there is only maybe a 1 foot drop - that wouldn't be able to pump up too far would it? I ran across a water wheel (kind with the hose wrapped with the paddles to 'collect' the water). If that moved the water into a 55 gal barrel on a pedistal - then out of it to the ram pump - would that work?
Oh man :/That's just frustrating.I get around 20 liters per minute by just catching water and putting it in a container using a dust pan. So probably more on actual. But like i said the hole is about 300+ ft deep. I want to use it for something.
i uploaded the video of the flowing water beside our home. Its was dug by the local water supplier of the city and was abandoned when it deemed unable to supply the growing community.Will this be useful in some other way? I want to ram pump this to better usehttps://youtu.be/CORpxiynLZ0
HiThis system looks brilliant. I have a natural stream flowing through my garden and I want to put trout in it but need more oxygen in the water. If I pressured the outflow so it squirted the water higher in the air, do you think this would improve the oxygen level and would you know how much it would increase it by (roughly)? Thanks, Sim.
I am contemplating building a ram pump. I have seen some that use an orifice below the check valve leading into the pressure tank. Do you know if this arrangement is less efficient than using an air bladder as in your design?
