Ram Pump Test

We conducted our ram pump test last Wednesday.

First, we built the tank. This is the water source for the pump.

Preparation for the test. The water was pumped from ground level to level 4 at Block P which is about 20m height.

We managed to pump the water. However, the flow rate was unsatisfactory. We managed to fill a 1.5L bottle for about 64 seconds. We found that there are leaks around the connection at the air tank. So rather then using glue we need to weld the connection.
