# How to create water pressure without electricity

### How can I pump water without electricity?

All you need to do is add enough 2″ diameter PVC pipe (available from any hardware or plumbing supply store) to reach the

**water**. You can tell how far it is to the**water**by dropping a weighted string down into the**well**. Like any shallow**well pump**, it may need priming the first time you use it.### How do you create water pressure?

**Water pressure**is created with the weight of the

**water**itself or by mechanical means with a pump. The

**pressure**at any point in a static column of

**water**is simply the weight of the

**water**above that point. For example, the column of

**water**could be a

**water**tower (discussed later) or tank of

**water**on a hill.

### Is there a non electric water pump?

**The**award-winning Papa

**Pump**is a

**water pump**using

**no**fuel or

**electricity**, just

**the power**of flowing

**water**.

### Does a water pump need electricity?

As its name implies, an

**electric**submersible**pump requires**an**electric**motor — running straight from an**electrical**source — to power the**pump**. For this reason, they’re most often limited to powering wheel**pumps**or sewer bypass**pumps**, where the motor never needs to be submerged.### What is the efficiency of a ram pump?

A typical energy

**efficiency**is 60%, but up to 80% is possible.### Does a ram pump need a pressure tank?

This

**tank’s**job is to act as a shock absorber and smooth out the**pressure**spike of the**ram**. Without this**tank**the**pressure**spike can be so great it will impact on the service life of the**pump**.### How much pressure does a ram pump make?

The

**ram pump**requires approximately 10**psi**of back**pressure**to operate, so if the delivery pipe outlet is not at least twenty-three feet above the**ram pump**, valve #7 can be used to throttle the flow and maintain the required back**pressure**.### How high will a ram pump pump?

While there are several differing opinions regarding how far and

**how high**you**will**be able to**pump**water with the hydraulic**ram pump**, a conservative estimate is that there is a 1 to 7 ratio. For every 1 foot of drop (or head) that you have, you**will**be able to raise water around seven feet.### How deep can a pump lift water?

The atmospheric pressure would be capable of sustaining a column of water 33.9

**feet**in height. If a pump could produce a perfect vacuum, the maximum height to which it could lift water at sea level would be 33.9**feet**, as shown in Example 1.### How far can you lift water with a pump?

The pump at ground level acts as the source of vacuum and has a theoretical lifting capability of about 30

**feet**(It would lift 34**feet**if it could create a perfect vacuum). In practice, 25**feet**is all you should design a centrifugal or jet pump to lift in order to have adequate capacity left for water usage.### What size of pump do I need to lift water 100 feet?

Example – Horsepower Required to Pump Water

Power Required to Pump Water (hp) |
||
---|---|---|

Volume Flow (gpm) | Height (ft) | |

80 | 0.101 | 0.404 |

90 | 0.114 | 0.455 |

100 |
0.126 | 0.505 |

### How far can a 1 hp pump push water?

A

**1**/2**Hp pump should**be able to**push water**up hill 40 ft without problems.### How many GPM will a 1 hp pump?

From this chart, you

**can**see that a**1 horsepower pump**(the green curve)**will**give you 52**GPM**flow on a system with 64 feet of head.### How do you convert GPM to HP?

Motor

**Hp**= (**GPM**) x ( Total Head, ft ) ( 3,960 ) x Pump % Eff.### How much HP is in a PSI?

Multiply that gallons per minute by the amount in

**psi**. For the example, the amount in**psi**is 400. That multiplied by 20 gpm equals 8,000. Divide that number by 1,714 to obtain the hydraulic**horsepower**.### How many gpm does a 2 HP pump?

Number of submersible well pump stages determine pump lift capacity

---|---|---|

Water Pump HP |
Nr. of Pump Stages |

3 HP |
19 | 4 – 43 GPM (varies by TDH) |

5 HP |
28 | 4 – 43 GPM (varies by TDH) |

### How many HP is a bar?

1 HP Water Pump, Pressure:5 Bar

Power | 1 HP |
---|---|

Power Consumption | 0.75 kW |

Flow Rate | 11.6 ( Liter per Minute ) |

Pressure | 5 Bar |

Operating Temperature | Suitable for 65 degree C |

### How much is 1 kg in bar?

PRESSURE CONVERSION FORMULAE:

1 BAR = 14.500 PSI |
1 KPa = 0.0100 BAR |
---|---|

1 BAR = 1.0193 KG/CM2 |
1 KPa = 0.0102 KG/CM2 |

1 PSI = 0.0690 BAR |
1 KG/CM2 = 0.9810 BAR |

1 PSI = 6.8966 KPa |
1 KG/CM2 = 14.225 PSI |

1 PSI = 0.0703 KG/CM2 |
1 KG/CM2 = 0.0098 |

### How do you convert HP to GPM?

**HP**= (PSI x

**GPM**) ÷ (1714 x EFFICIENCY)

Important: As all systems are less than 10% efficient and efficiency factor must be added to the calculated input **horsepower**. Rule of thumb: For every 1 **HP** of drive, the equivalent of 1 **GPM** @ 1500 PSI can be produced.

### How do you calculate hp boost?

If your example engine makes 150

**horsepower**naturally aspirated, then you can**estimate**an extra 10.5**horsepower**per pound of**boost**with a turbo and 7.5 to 9 more horses for a supercharger. If you’re running 8 psi of**boost**, then that’s an approximate 234**horsepower**with a turbo and 210 to 222 with a supercharger.### How much HP will 5 psi add?

Yeah it is around 100 hp per

**10 pounds**of boost on a well built motor.### Is 15 psi a lot of boost?

**Is 15 psi a lot of boost**? Well-Known Member. Racey said:

**15 psi**would double the potential hp of the motor, as atmospheric air pressure is ~

**15psi**, so adding an additional

**15psi**of

**boost**is actually 30psi of Absolute pressure, twice the air.

### How many lbs of boost is safe?

If you have a stock engine, with a compressor that is factory set to produce no more than

**twenty pounds**of boost, you shouldn’t modify the system to make it produce much more than**25 pounds**of boost. And increase of**5 pounds**over stock is probably the limit you should go by.
