Hydraulic ram pump made by REDA at Kompong Soum province.
A quick example of a ram pump I built today. I need to get a pressure gauge for it still, and figure out a better input method of the water.
(Spot to put parts list when I find the receipt)
Ram Pump,,,Better Get your Ducks in a Row !!! with Organic Mike in Elgin Texas
this is an update on my water ram pumps that share the same drive line with less than
two feet of fall,
We built a ram pump to pump water from a small creek, uphill to the camping area 30 feet higher and 800 feet away from the water hole. We didn’t have any electricity to do the pumping, so a ram pump is a great option. It works using the water-hammer principal and the power of the moving water, with very few moving parts. This water will be used for irrigation of some new apple trees, and also a supply of fresh water for the camp.
This was a test. After tuning & adjustments we fully expect a height of 60′ where the header tanks will be located. From the header tanks, the water will be gravity-fed to the camp 30′ below.

My Commercial prototype of Heavy Duty Custom made Ram Pump has been installed in village Phulgran on River Korang at Raja Yasir Ali Advocate Wine Orchard. The Pump has 2 in Intake and 1 in deliver and it is delivering 14000 liters per day to height of 70 ft through 1000 ft delivery line. email@example.com
After a very a very large amount of rain (15″ in a week) I went out to check the ram pump and found that the water had moved the pump and also half the rocks in the creek.
The pump is back up and running without any issues. This is a good test of the strength of the pump. I would have to say that it is tough.
