Bunyip pumps. Pumping water uphill with the power of the river
posted 1 week ago
There is a new type of Glockermann
, working for similar contexts as ram pumps.
They work with car tire which accumulate the
, and then push it uphill. It is cheaper than a petrol based pump, and the running costs are almost inexistant.
The output chart seems impressive:
With a flow of 6 l/ second over 0.6 m, you can pump 700 l for 200 m per day.
They are based in Australia, but maybe they ship?
What a show! What atmosphere! What fun! What a tiny ad!
