The DIY Ram Pump!

A hydraulic ram, or hydram, Is a simple Yet quite magical device that pumps water up hill by using the water  itself to power it

It uses no fossil fuels and needs very little maintenance,the technology is very old but now hardly used and forgotten.

Here at Corga Da Pereira we have developed a model which can be easily made from readily available and recycled parts at a cost of less than that of an electric pump.

The ram pump works continuously pumping a portion of the flowing water up hill and can supply your house ,garden, ponds,tanks etc.

In our area it is important to store water to fight fire,save lives and propertys.We hold regular workshops on building and maintaining a hydraulic ram pump. ..see workshops  …

    If you like the ram pump technology, pls help us put the technology in the international spotlights by making us (the Philippine NGO AIDFI) a winner in the BBC World Challenge 2010. This will help spread this unknown technology.

      Dear Mr. Auke Idzenga,
      We have a farm on a small mountain. We need water for seedlings and livestock.

      There is a spring about 100 meters down the hillside that provides water to a few barangay dwellers.

      We would like to utilize the ram pump technology to provide water for our farm. Can you provide advice or guidance for this project?

      For the Francisco Estrera family,
      Robert E Pahus

      I built a water treatment for a village a catchment cedimentation and filtration Chambers which we taught was going to flow by gravity but it flew only for 40 metres and stoped. So I need a ram to pum water to tank situated at 1,5 kilometer from a 15m3 tank. This to serve a remote village of 100.people in an equetorial forest with no electricity and will never have in the next 20 years.
