This Ram Pump Kit is preassembled and comes with a ball valve on the drive pipe side to turn them on and off the pump, a drive pipe union for installing and cleaning the pump, a lead-free brass swing valve for the waste valve, a PVC inline secondary valve, a PVC pressure tank, and union with a ball valve on the delivery side for easy cleaning and turning off the delivery water.

The driving force behind the ram pump is “head pressure” which is the drop in water between the source and pump location. You will need at least 2 feet of head pressure to get the pump going.

You can expect to get a ratio of 1:7 head pressure to lift. This means that for every 1 foot of water falling into the pump you will get 7 feet of lift out.

To set up the ram pump you will need two additional components. A drive pipe, to bring water to the pump, and a delivery pipe to take water to the desired location. The Drive pipe needs to be the same size as the waste valve on the pump.

You can use Steel, PVC, or Poly Pipe. It is recommended that the drive pipe be longer than 15 feet and shorter than 100 feet. The Delivery pipe can be any size you like. Even a garden hose will work. (Some additional components might be required to connect the pipe to the pump depending on the type of pipe you choose to use)

Once the required pipes are installed and the pump is in the location you will need to start the pump. Initially, you will need to manually press the brass swing valve to allow pressure to build in the pressure tank. Once the pressure has been built the pump will cycle on its own.
