Many of the world's aquifers are now in distress - pumping ground water from wells or boreholes
The globally patented Papa Pump utilises flowing surface water - not ground water -
and so does not impact on the water table.

Although its design is based on traditional hydro ram principles using the 'water hammer' effect to pressurise a portion of the flow, the Papa Pump uses a patented elastomeric valve. This has enabled the design of the pump to be much smaller, much lighter, more efficient and they don't contain moving mechanical parts that wear out!  Our pumps are manufactured from a modern 50% glass 50% nylon composite which was specifically developed as a metal replacement - it's extremely strong and stable and doesn't corrode. We have pressure tested our pumps to 50 bar - nearly 4 times their maximum working pressure - and we can't break them!

Typical Applications for the Papa Pump

Pump and Store for later use

The concept is simple.  Store water when abundant and use when there's a shortage. Another benefit from this system is huge savings on water bills.

Agriculture & Livestock

Your own fresh and natural spring or stream water delivered and distributed all over the farm, for free! Animals prefer to drink natural water.

Off Grid Water Supply

Without using any electricity or fuel, the Papa Pump can pump water over long distances and to heights of up to 150 metres, 24/7

Humanitarian Projects

The Papa Pump is the ideal low cost water delivery solution for remote communities - easy to install, easy to maintain, no fuel needed.

Commercial & Utility

A Papa Pump is ideal if you run a water intensive business with access to a flowing water source on your site. You will save on huge water bills

Why buy a Papa Pump when it's easy to make your own ram pump?

Instructions for home-made ram pumps are easily available online and there can be no denial that they will work - up to a point. What they don't tell you is that they will require much maintenance and replacement of mechanical parts due to the pressures involved. 1 bar (15 psi) pressure raises water to a height of 10 metres - the Papa Pump will deliver water up to a height of 150 metres (15 bar, 217 psi) and over long distances all day long, 365 days/year. And because the Papa Pump is the only ram pump that contains no mechanical moving parts, maintenance intervals are high, simple and low cost. See this page for details.

This farmer thought he could save money by making his own ram pump but ended up wasting a lot of time with hundreds of pounds wasted!

....depending on your mains water usage you should get a return on your investment within a couple of years - we know some customers who have seen a payback within 1 year!
