"With no moving mechanical parts, the award winning Papa Ram Pump is probably the world's simplest and most cost effective water pumping solution, delivering water 24/7 without the need for electricity or fuel!"
Many of the world's aquifers are now in distress - pumping ground water from wells or boreholes
HARMS THE ENVIRONMENT
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
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, are simple and are low cost. See this page for details.
