Water management is an important factor for everyone homesteading or living off-grid. Here is a diy ram pump that might be just what you were looking for.

But what are ram pums?

Ram pumps have been around for many decades and are popular for two main reasons:

  1. They need no external source of power -- the force of moving water gives them the power they need.
  2. They are extremely simple, with just two moving parts.

The basic idea behind a ram pump is simple. The pump uses the momentum of a relatively large amount of moving water to pump a relatively small amount of water uphill.
