New Uses for the PAPA Pump Siphon System
Several Companies have contacted PAPA Pump to use our Siphon system in Eel Passes
Eels and Elvers are increasingly rare so Environmental regulators across the world are doing everything they can do stop the decline of this important species.
Often weirs, dams & canal locks interrupt the ability for Eels to migrate, however, a PAPA Siphon pump systen can operate to create a natural flow of water over a pass, so that Eels can safetly navigate their way upstream over the obstacle.
Usually solar pumps are added for these remote applications but these can be stolen and are sometimes not appropriate in sensitive environmental areas.
The Siphon Pump system comes as a complete ready to install kit- Please contact PAPA Pump for more information.
Solar / PAPA Pump Integration
PAPA Pump has been integrated with a small solar pump to move the water for a PAPA pump to do the rest of the work and pump it long distances.
on a farm in the South West of UK, this tailor made PAPA Pump system is useful as it is less expensive solar pump system with a PAPA Pump can pump water for less cost than a high spec solar pump system.
In other places, it can help aerate and move water which could othewise go stagnant possibly posing a threat to human and animal health.
These systems can help reduce grid energy demand for hydroponic systems and even provide for the continual aeration of water to help reduce fish deaths in summer drought.
Advantages of the PAPA Pump solar integration system; Several low cost, tailor made solar integration systems are helping give farmers and other users the benefit of increased solar power in summer balanced by more water power available in winter.
The Solar Integration system design is a perfect example use of our proven PAPA pump; the pump can sustainably pump water long distances and the solar pump just re-circulates water small distances so most is pumped to where it is needed by the reliable PAPA Pump.
PAPA Pump have new systems to get the best from our zero energy pump....see the schematic below of the tailor made system and a case study on a recent electric pump integration HERE

New Advanced Composite 'Papa Pump' Product Launch Announcement
As an importsnt step forward for the field of water powered or RAM Pump, PAPA pump is very excited to announce the upcoming launch of a new Composite pump model.
This new product has all the advantages of our existing metal pump - but this model will be used for lower pressure pumping, with better efficiencies with slower water and lower heads. It also incorporates some design enhancements for greater flexibility.
Our metal pump will continue to be used for high 'head' situations (ie where the water drop from supply source to where the pump is located) of more than 100 feet.
The new product will be launched later in 2011 so please let us know if you want to be updated and its technical information.

New Papa Utilities Services Division established
'PAPA' stands for 'Pump Activated Pressure Amplifer' as our pump can move water over large distances operating solely through the power of water pressure alone.
Papa is developing new uses of these pumps away from the agricultural sector which has been the main focus of the product for the last 15 years.
As Water Utilities and other large users of water, such as the mining sector, are increasingly under both cost and legislative pressure to reduce fossil fuel use as they pump fresh/sea water greater distances- that is why they should look at Papa 'Utility Services' innovative & unique solutions.
That is why Papa has formed a special 'Utility Services Division' which will develop and market the Company's energy efficient pressure amplification technologies and service solutions....click here to send an inquiry; http://www.waterpoweredtechnologies.com/utility.php
