I can remember my uncle (40+ years ago) using one to pump water up a 200' hill, from a creek, to water his large beef cow herd...
I never knew how it worked...
Also, we might want to use one on our farm, where we have water, and do not have electrical power...
I spent some time researching and have created a blog on the subject:
"Water Pumps Without Electricity or Fuel" - Hydraulic Water Ram Pumps and Others...
There is lots history, theory, practice, homemade plans, videos, etc... all at
Basic components of a hydraulic ram:
1. Inlet - drive pipe
2. Free flow at waste valve
3. Outlet — delivery pipe
4. Waste valve
5. Delivery check valve
6. Pressure vessel
