TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

Hydraulic Ram Pump


Jay, you said you had a good set of instructions for building a ram pump? There was this list ]you mentioned
•approx. 1 meter of 28 mm copper pipe for body and pressure chamber
•22 mm copper pipe for supply pipe
•15 mm copper pipe for delivery pipe
•connectors as needed
•two 28 mm compression 'T's
•one 28 mm compression elbow
•one 28 mm solder blank end - optional
•one 15 mm ball valve
•one 28 mm to 15 mm reducer - solder type
•one 28 mm to 22 mm reducer - solder type
•flat piece copper for valves (pipe cut open and hammered flat on metal surface)
•small bore pipe to form guide for impulse valve
•inner tube for delivery and snifter valves and mounting shock absorbers
•rubber and copper disk (psst! don't tell Her Madge - a coin) for impulse valve
•tiny nut and bolt cut from earth connector of light switch for snifter valve flap
•two nuts and bolts for the impulse and the delivery valve - brass or s/s
•a steel spring removed from a cabinet ball and spring closure (brass would be better if found) for the impulse valve
•1/2 tea strainer (wire globe type) clipped to tank outlet
•approx 1 ft of 22 mm i/d reinforced automotive rubber pipe as shock absorbing section in supply pipe
•two hose clamps for above
•one 20 gallon tank as buffer and filter at spring
•one 22 mm tank connector
•two exhaust pipe brackets to hold pump body to base
•section of steel I-beam for base, or similar
•concrete to hold pump base
•solder, flux
You're right in assuming parts can be had on the island, or salvaged. It's an agricultural setting so there's plenty of this kind of thing around. Maybe they even already HAVE ram pumps, god knows.

Re: Hydraulic Ram Pump


Here are a couple of sites I found last night.
]Outlands rampump
]meribah-ram-pump
We can make a ram pump using heavy duty PVC, this would of course have a limited life span compared to heavy duty 2 inch steel, but it would be a cost effective solution that we could experiment with.
Mind you we could actually buy a cots rampump for a couple of hundred euros, so that would solve the solution of figuring out how to put the thing together.
Do we have any mechanically minded people amongst us?
Also, a rampump is not exactly silent, so we will need to create some kind of hidden contained structure to house the rampump, and we would have to make it soundproofed to the best of our ability.

the Williamson Ram Pump


The Williamson ram pump is a hydraulic ram pump, yes, but it's the first i've run across that promises
40 METERS RISE FOR EVERY 1 METER FALL.
Everywhere else i've read 10 meters rise for every meter fall but the Williamson ram pump brings it up 4 times higher! That's damn impressive. As they mention in YouTube vid, that's enough to reach the top of a mountain, and they're not kidding.
The only drawback one can think of, technically or practically, is that it'll only bring up 5% of the water used, as opposed to 10% to a normal ram pump. However, considering that the water's brought up 4 times as high, as long as there's enough water, that means that it's actually not half but twice as much water being elevated.
Financially, i suppose, the drawback would be having to order one from Williamson FROM NEW ZEALAND...
(I'll see if they sell them elsewhere, but they're heavy and shipping would be a serious investment no matter where they're built.)

I received an email (reply) from Kevin from the above company that the smallest unit [1500 to 4500 liter/day] would be 4500NZD, shipping 1000.
That means that for € 3200 you can have that unit shipped to Europe. Since Americans pay about $ 2000 for a Rife pump [i.e. without shipping] and since the Williamson pumps water 4 x as high, it's a reasonable investment (for a unique watering option that'll lare bare land that no one else will be able to touch or use).
