Alen Combs: I am looking for a simple water pump for an aquaponic system that doesn't use electricty (or fuel). Do you think it might work for an aquaponic system? I have seen this system used for compressing air for cobalt mine work in Ragged Chute Air Plant in Ontario to run their drills (I might make it one for to run machinery run by compressed air, refrigeration etc). I am not sure why, and I honestly cannot wrap my head around using it for pumping water. But I hope it can.
sixmagpies: You're a very rare and intelligent man Mr White, to be thinking totally outside the box like this. Such clever stuff. And it's self-evident that your 'organic' pumping system can so easily be leveraged to, either, improve delivery height/pressure, or the total volume (larger number of small pipes feeding from the plenum chamber.) This makes ram pumps look positively over technical!
