Just made this pump for about 80 dollars and seemed to work great. Called hydraulic ram pump [img:center]

Here is a set of plans from Clemson University pump plans with addition information. I've been looking at building one of these for awhile. Thanks for the video hunterpaul.

Water is forced into pump. For every foot of elevation drop you get 7 feet of head pressure...my cabin is 250 ft away and we have at least 40 ft of head to get water in where we need it...pump worked great
