Title: Running Water Uphill
The hydraulic ram pump is a device which pumps water up to high elevation through the use of energy contained in falling water passing through it. Despite it being an old technology and having huge potentials, the ram never became widespread because of wrong timing in history. Commercial ‘antique’ looking models are hard to get and the other alternative models are inferior in quality. AID Foundation developed a perfect working model with the best from both which can be made in many sizes and piece by piece. We installed ourselves in 170 villages, exported ram pumps and offer technology transfer.
