    Will be finally getting around to doing my RAM Pump project soon.

    Just been getting the parts and assembling them. Some PVC parts will be obtained overseas though.



    Hopefully with this water can be pushed up the hill without electricity requirements etc.

    I look forward to your progress. This tech is quite old and well proven, so I have no doubt you can pull it off.
    What has to come from overseas? The gate valves?

    I'm all ears on this. It could be a good solution to my situation at our cabin.

    Watching intently as well. I have an application for this once I see how it's done.

    The Quarter Turn Valve and the Gate Valves are easier to source at the remote area trading stores. PVC pipe is much more abundant.

    Try looking for ball valve, rather than 1/4turn. It should be easier to find.
