Antique Water Ram by RIFE Ram Pumps. This is a model #3 as stamped on the side. For more information on water rams. This unit is in very good condition and the brass fixture in good shape, with no corrosion etc. The only flaw is one leg was broken in the years of use. Please see pictures. Highly collectable and VERY HARD TO FIND in good condition!
***This was purchased as an antique collectable, not as a working unit. It has sat in my garage in good storage and should be workable, but I have never used it nor can promise it to work.

A hydraulic ram, or hydram, is a cyclic water pump powered by hydropower. It functions as a hydraulic transformer that takes in water at one “hydraulic head” (pressure) and flow-rate, and outputs water at a higher hydraulic-head and lower flow-rate. The device uses the water hammer effect to develop pressure that allows a portion of the input water that powers the pump to be lifted to a point higher than where the water originally started. The hydraulic ram is sometimes used in remote areas, where there is both a source of low-head hydropower, and a need for pumping water to a destination higher in elevation than the source. In this situation, the ram is often useful, since it requires no outside source of power other than the kinetic energy of water.
