water pump idea Answered

i hypothesise that when is heat applied to a suitable sealed vessel, filled with water, and having a pipe into the base of the container below the water level, that when the water gets hot enough, it will exit the pipe under pressure.

if anyone has any input or had experiance with this kind of a thing or knows of a device which works in the same or similar manner, i would like to hear from you.  i though it could be a way of moving water with no moving parts or access to electricity, motors etc.
thank

Take a look at a coffee pot. Either a new electric type or a old fashioned camp fire type, they work on the same principle.

You've recreated the Savery fire engine, the first device to pump water from mines using steam power.

Try looking at the "Thermodyne" pump - its a fluid Stirling engine.

It is a good idea, but you must work on it. You need a repetitive cycle of hot-cool air, and valves.

If the water turns to steam, that's exactly what happens !
