Hydraulic head pump

Electricity-free pumping solution for water purification in surgace water catchments

Identification

This solution is an electricity-free water pump. This solves one of the biggest problems in human history: Lifting water above existing water sources. Today many rural and agricultural zones are still deprived of electricity, confronting them with this age-old problem of lifting water automatically. The pump can provide a viable solution to ease life in these areas. Electricity-free pumping solution permits the filtering of thousands of cubic meters of polluted water per day from rivers, especially in developing countries. The technology uses a water head to drive the main piston, making this a high volume high-pressure volumetric pump to drive thousands of cubic meters of water per day to high altitude land that until today was only possible with electricity.
