    Good day sir. I would like to ask about the operation of the pump. Do i need to have a constant head in my source? Or a constant pressure?

      Hello. Good question. The height that the pump will deliver water depends on the amount of head that is falling in the drive pipe that reaches the pump. So say you had a tank with a floating intake pipe, that sank with the lowering water, You would lose potential as the head lowered. So I would recommend a constant head but the pump will work with a changing head. As far as pressure goes you dont need pressure at the source for the pump to work. The pressure wave in the drive pipe needs to flow freely. So if you were to apply pressure to the source it would limit the “ram” effect. …. I hope this helps.

        Could the stand pipe be within ten feet of the ram pump?

          You can make a drive pipe that short but there are some issues that can come up. The pressure wave is so short at this point that it can interfere with the waste valve cycle. I recommend at least 15 feet but 50 to 100 is best.

      Hello. Yes there is a rubber bike tube in the tank. This prevents the tank from becoming water logged. Your pump should work without this in the tank though as water logging takes time to occur.

    question:
    Any details on using more than one pump (drive pipe to 1st pump which delivers water to holding tank, 2nd drive pipe back down to 2nd pump,etc) on the same line to increase overall height distance?

      That is a good question. I actually have a video showing how this works. I found that even with a 1-1/4″ ram pump it is not possible to supply enough water to a 1/2″ ram pump to increase the hight with the two pumps going 24/7. Now it is possible to run one pump to fill a tank at a hight and use that to run a second pump. Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umxcP4G3FXE
