I toss around the value that the ram pump can pump water up to heights based of a ratio of 1:7 meaning that for every one foot of head that falls into the pump you will get 7 feet of water pumped. This number is not always the case depending on the setup that you have. I figured that I would set up my pump with 12 feet of head and see just how high I could get the pump to go. Check out this video of the 1-1/4″ ram pump potential:
I will revisit this adventure on a later date to let know how well this works when its not so cold out.
