Between 1796 and 1820 the Ram pump design was perfected. A hydraulic ram has only two moving parts, a spring or weight loadedrampump “waste” valve sometimes known as the “clack” valve and a “delivery” check valve, making it cheap to build, easy to maintain, and very reliable. In addition, there is a drive pipe supplying water from an elevated source, and a delivery pipe, taking a portion of the water that comes through the drive pipe to an elevation higher than the source.
