Rope Pump

pump up & store your water

The Rope Pump consist of a PVC pipe with a rope though it, to which washers are attached which fit in the tube with a small clearance. A wheel on top of the windmill tower pulls the rope with the washers through the pipe. The water is pushed up by the washers within the pipe and drains into a 200 liter Barrel 5 meters above ground.
