The ram pump, or water ram, is a very useful 'old-tech' device that has been around for many years and is as useful today as ever. It can pump water from a flowing source of water to a point ABOVE that source with no power requirement other than the force of gravity. Invented before electric water pumps, this rugged, simple and reliable device works continuously with only 2 moving parts and very little maintenence. Typically installed at remote home sites for domestic water supply, watering livestock, gardens, decorative lily and fish ponds, water wheels and fountains. Because it uses no power, a ram pump can be used where water would normally not be used and would flow on downstream.
This book explains in simple terms and with illustrations how the ram pump works, where and how it can be set up, and how to keep it going. The second section of the book gives step-by-step plans for building a fully operational Atlas Ram Pump from readily available plumbing fittings and which require NO welding, drilling, tapping or special tools to fabricate. The final chapter shows how to build an inexpensive ferro-cement water storage tank.
