The pulser pump uses hydropower with no moving parts!
It is just pipes joined together. People have made pulser pumps and pulser pump models in Europe, Asia, and north America and posted them to youtube. Probably other places too. ( Please check out and make the pulser pump nano too. The nano began in 2011 as a suggestion from Virlusun on youtube) Nobody has ever made a pulser pump nano.
The one in the videos have worked for over 2 decades.
This idea was probably thought of and used (and lost) before I thought of it.
If you have ever seen a tromp powering an airlift pump to pump water (or reference to it), prior to 1986, please let me know. a entry, and more people will have confidence to use them.
The pulser pump began in 1988. This is a small one in Ireland. Thanks Wikipedia (june 08) for updating the definition for trompe at my request.

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.

A-Hole, how does air flow downward in the first tube?
Greg Simonson 31.5.2014, 15:06
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

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.

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!

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?

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?

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

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

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.

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.

very good inspiration for further the environment preservation, no fuel consumption need. thanks.

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

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 26.12.2013, 01:03
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.

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

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.

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.

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

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
