RAM pumps are great - as long as you have a water source to continually feed them. Amazing pumps.
As Paul states, as long as there is plenty of water flow!
I used one on the farm, we had a big dam in the valley, overflowed 9 months of the year!
The ram pump would lift the water 250 feet to our head tanks above the house.
Beats running an engine, any day!
Is it possible to connect this to a water tank 50 feet high..gravity from tank will run pump, overflow runs back to well..pump placed on top of deep well..you think it works?
Ah, I guess not...the water running the pump is also the source..
It might pump for awhile until tank was eventually empty due to system friction ( diminishing returns?).
