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! :wheel:

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?).
