Brian White: Hi Spgandau. Yes it is better to extend the pipe up in the split process version. Depending on your requirements, you might look at the pulser pump nano too. Most people hate the idea of digging really deep like I have done. With the pulser pump nano, you do not need to dig so deep but I do now know how high the nano pumps. 

Greg Simonson: Pistons? in the oil industry we call them rabbits, when a gas well is getting old and pressure wont lift the water to surface, we will set up a timer and catcher on the wellhead, drop a steel rabbit down the hole, well will shut itself in for a specific amount of time to let pressure build then valve opens and gas water and rabbit come sailing up the pipe, up 1800 meters on some of our wells, then rabbit will stay up in the catcher for a specific amount of time then valve closes and it drops to repeat the process. So yea a piston would work well for going long distances

nick0sav: The "bubble lift" part of pulse pump was widely used (at least in SU in 1970-s and earlier) as a pump for aquarium filters. The obvious advantages were that it utilized the air flow of cheap air pumps anyways used for aeration... and was stupidly easy for DIY. 

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! 

softtchtoo: I am trying to use a windmill to pump the air for a hydroponic system. So are there measurements of how much air needs pumped and can it be sporadic? length of pipe in water compared to lift?

cebolaloco: at 2:00 i felt like playing Super Mario

spgandau: I just stumbled onto this page. Very interesting! I was looking at the split process pulser setup. The air delivery pipe is shown to go UP, and then horizontally, and then DOWN back into the water flow/source and enter the vertical pipe upstream. I have a question... Can the air delivery pipe be buried in the ground and go directly from the air chamber to the vertical pipe upstream?...or it is necessary to have it extend vertically above the top of the Head pressure before going back down into the water?

abu muhamad Mustafa: is this possible to be used taking water for dring or irrigation from narrow well of 90 meters deep? how this can be ddone ? tthank you

peter clemo: clever but the narrative was awful I had to work it out for myself

David Whiteley: Near Cobalt Ontario is an old pump of this form used to create compressed air for the mines. I think the intake pipe was about three feet across. When the pressure exceeds requirement it blows off water in a mighty fountain, a bit like Old Faithful. The design might have come form Germany.

Bob Thunder: Hi I really appreciate this video, this seems to be a large version of the Ram Pump--am I correct in understanding this? Except you do not use a valve. I am trying to find a way to do hydroponics without the need of an electric pump, but need to pump the water to the same hight. 

Shun Sing Poon: very good inspiration for further the environment preservation, no fuel consumption need. thanks.

TheRealDaneSullivan: Brian, no mummies were ever found in the pyramids, they were NOT burial chambers. They were laid to rest in the Valley of The Kings

Ken Lee: Subbed. So, a 15 foot deep lake, a bundle of 1/4 inch tubes and a fish tank bubbler, how high can I go?

joelkonkor: have you ever tried stacking this idea? in my mind i have this picture of the ground level pump shooting water into a smaller system such as this but on stilts. maybe you could double your height out of that and ram pump it far off and away. sometimes i have streaks of genius right before i fall asleep. figured id share that one with the world. anyway, good night youtube. 

MeTubeu333: dude, this is stupid lol... it requires more energy put into this system than you could take out.. sorry, nice try

AngelOfLight3: animated with paint ^_^

Brian White: This doesn't use water hammer and it has nothing whatsoever to do with ram pumps and bernouli's principle is only a tiny tiny part of how it works. We all love the security of attaching unknown things to something we learned in physics 101 but 2 phase fluid flow is not thought in physics 101 and involves a whole range of physics principles that most of us have never even heard about. But the good news is that these pumps are simple to make and to use. They do not pump very high though.

mad4us: hey if there r no moving parts, what is that guy doing? looks like a bycicle pump he is using? So that is a moving part, am I wrong?

Hugh Jaanus: YOU don't have a problem with your English but others have a problem understanding you. You say dis and dat, not this and that. The Queen and her family don't have an accent, they speak English, A German speaking English would have an accent, A French person speaking English would have an accent. I am Irish and can speak Polish with a Cork accent. Anyway the English don't speak good English, they say modern not modern, Americans say hunnerd, not hundred, Australians say woda, not water.

Richards WasteLand: Lol. Over sized squirt gun.

deanosslewis: Glockerman water powered pumps are an amazing solution for low flow situations. glockemann

Brian White: Bill went too big on his tromp for most people (including himself!. Mine are smaller but I went too big too! BUT you can do useful work with a tromp that is only 3 or 4 ft deep. A 1 meter deep tromp can pump water with the pulser pump nano idea. (Bundles of tubes instead of 1 pipe for the airlift can pump water effectively) I am working on several concepts. Pallet gardens, ebb and "float" hydroponics and "lungfish" hydroponics all to run on 1 psi air. (extremely low pressure air!) Brian

fuelban: Nice concept, Big Science as you term it... {Has little interest, Outside there Own} my friend, don't look there for any help, you have a "fine Idea" here, I can think of several applications for this, but need to let it rattle in my mind a time or two, thanks, very good video. Thom in Scotland.

felixIxilef: thanks

Phillip Galey: And, for proof of principle, nor are any calculations necessary, . . . you're confusing yourself, . . .

Brian White: Hi Sunny, It is not really practical. Check the weird and wonderful alternative energy playlist for for low tech ideas.These tanks filled with water store energy but withdrawing some of that energy to pump water (as the water is being used by the apartment dwellers) will also slow down the water going the the apartment dwellers. And given that their system is low pressure, it is probably slow to start with! And, even more important, more pipework means more danger of sanitary failings.

Brian White: Nope, indygoguy. Rams are way more efficient. But a ram can not use a tonne of water per second and a large pulser pump could. And pulser pumps are way simpler. So it is just different strokes for different folks. If you bother to go to my windowfarms research playlist, you can see a one psi aquarium bubble pump pumping to more than 10 ft. By your "understanding" that is not possible but there are about 30,000 windowfarmers and many of them pump to 10 ft and higher with the same method.

Phillip Galey: In attaching redundant and unnecessary technical info, sound like any of many scientists and politicians, and to lay yourself open to confusion: in the conversation of energy in thought, any pressure differential in the bubble collection cone, does not bear mention; rather, the whole from there on out is the simple matter of equalization by gravity, and than water, the air being lighter, it travels by conveyance tube to push some trapped water up and out, . . .

davisx2002: how do you compress air without any moving parts? If you say a pump; why not just pump water with a plunger instead of air?

Danny Jewell: Have you thought about Ping Pong Balls as your floating piston? I have a design for an air lift pump using PPB's but only built part of it. I am working on an air compressor and pump combination for existing wells, 1 moving part. Please let me know what you think. I am doing mission work in Nicaragua, taught 2 classes on pumps, valves and air lift well drill. I will head back in December.

Brian White: I dug it by hand, one summer when the stream dried up. I think the hole was about 15 ft deep. I have pictures on the tripod site. Most people hate the idea of a deep hole. Eileen from the windowfarms community suggested a "pulser pump nano" that doesn't go so deep (just 1 or 2 meters) runs a bundle of 1/4 tubes to pump water. I did proof of concept (I have no stream now) and that works too. Check the pallet garden project. 1 tube uses about 20 litres of air per hour. Many tubes needed!

Kinder Kinetika: Hi. Can you please send some more specifications if I want to build a pump from out a dam or just normal measurements. Regards

Brian White: In a general low head situation, you cannot put the trompe on an incline without major losses. (The air bubbles just go to one side of the pipe and goes back up quickly). You need that vertical flow to keep them mixed evenly. However, I do not know the what the case might be in high head situations.

MrBlueroads: im very confused, i want to build one i live on a big creek but i cant understand this diagram. what am i seeing? is it a pipe burried under the creek ?

Nick Kitchener: Pull out a piece of paper and work it out for yourself. This is a hydraulic so the air compressed = the weight of water in the primary column. This is your force. The height with with you can then raise the water is dependent on the volume of water in the hose. The max height will be when the amount of water in the hose = the amount of water in the column. You could pump the water 100 ft if the hose was thin enough.

Brian White: No, it works on a different principle. Thanks, Brian

Brian White: Hi, Danny, I don't think Ping pong balls will work. I think the floating piston (which is just an R+D idea) will work if you can find a wettable hard foam or sponge that you can cut into spheres of a suitable size. I only ever did it with little polystyrene balls that I broke apart from some sort of polystyrene casing that was made of polystyrene "bubbles" of various sizes stuck together. I manually submerged them and they produced much better liquid holdup. Potential for large improvement!

Brian White: Yes, it needs a stream of running water. It is not very "efficient" and it does not pump very high. Its advantages are that it is cheap and simple and it uses water power that sits unused anyway. The big disadvantage is you have to dig deep! BUT if you want something easier, there is the pulser pump nano! The pulser pump nano goes about a meter deep, and makes approx 1 psi air (7kpa). You use that air to pump water through BUNDLES of 5 to 7 mm tubes. Pallet garden playlist has more details!

Hugh Jaanus: Your English is shocking, you have problems with "th" in your pronounciations. In the text I am replying to, you say THOUGHT where it should be TAUGHT as in teach. I presume you are Irish (I am also) from your accent, at first I THOUGHT you were from Holland or some other wierd country. I also think you posted a video regarding using an air pump to rise water using bubbles, and are living in Canada. Am I right or am I right?

Tomas Vavricka: Smart !

Brian White: Hi Sunny, I have some playlists (mostly of other peoples work), that shows ways to use "low grade power" and very small power sources to do useful work. "weird and wonderful alternative energy machines", "wimpy power for the masses". Combining low energy water power, wind power, solar power, etc to pump air around a low pressure "pneumatic grid" is technically easier and cheaper than an electrical grid. The compressed air can then be used to pump water, etc. It runs my pallet gardens

seeinstripes: Awh skeet skeet skeet...

Brian White: Grow up.

650nj: it is not clear idea .. it is useful but how does it works .. ? the mechanism of the pump is not clear

Axel Maxwell: "But a ram can not use a tonne of water per second and a large pulser pump could." -what do you base that statement on? Ram pumps could be built rather large. Ramp pumps can pump tens of times higher than pulser pumps anyways. The height that the pulser pump can pump is limited to the vertical height of the downflow pipe. Gaiatech confirms this himself by pointing to another video "Pulser Pump (air lift Pump). Read the comments there, pumped height-ten ft- depth of chamber-10ft.

hintzofcolorconcepts: Funny, thats the same sound it makes when you hump a slurpie

Brian White: They are probably testing it in Loughborough university this year.

Abd Elhamid Elsayed: does it need a stream of running water to power it? - thank you for your reply in advance
