Pump Gallons of
Water Through Your Home Without


First, you'll need these parts, or similar:

  • x4 ¼" Female PPR pipe fitting
  • x1x 1 ¼", 78 ¾" length PPR pipe
  • x1 ¼" PPR tee
  • x1 PPR ¼" Short pipe (cut to size)
  • x1 Pressure tank*
  • x1 90 degree PPR elbow with x2 ¼" diameter PVC tubes inserted.
  • x1 ¼" PPR coupling with a ¼" tube in the opening.
  • x4 ¼" Brass nipple
  • x2 ¼" Brass valve with interior thread
  • x1 ¼" Brass tee non-return valve
  • x1 ¼" Brass tee
  • x1 ¼" Brass Non-return valve
  • x2 1 ¼" Gaskets
  • x1 ¼" Brass lock nut
  • x1 ¼" NPT brass pump female check foot valve

Next, it's a simple case of slotting your pipes together:

Take your x1 ¼" PPR Coupling and attach it to the x1 ¼" Female PPR Pipe Fitting, followed by your x1 ¼" PPR Pipe.

Then, attach your x1 ¼" Female PPR Pipe Fitting and PPR Tee together, before attaching your x1 ¼" PPR Elbow.

After this attach the x1 ¼" Female PPR Pipe Fitting to the x1 ¼" PPR Pipe facing up.

Place the "short pipe" into the middle hole of your tee.

Then, attach another x1 ¼" Female PPR Pipe Fitting to what you've just inserted. Don't panic if you need to cut it for size. It'll fit in the end.

Here I'm also using Oakum to help seal the pipes' joints while attaching a x1 ¼" Brass Nipple to the first part of the assembly containing the ¼" PPR Pipe. This is useful but not critical.

Next, add the x1 ¼" Brass Valve with Interior Thread...

Attach your x1 ¼" Brass Nipple to the other side of the valve and connect the two assembly parts together...

Place another Brass Nipple on "top" of the apparatus...

And fasten your x1 ¼" Brass Tee Non Return Valve to the top-front of the apparatus using another Brass Nipple... ensuring it flows in the right direction.

Link your Brass Tee to your x1 ¼" Brass Tee Non Return Valve using another Brass Nipple.

Then, attach your x1 ¼" Brass Tee to your remaining x1 ¼" Brass Valve with Interior Thread using a Brass Nipple, before inserting your final nipple to the top of your Brass Tee.

Attach your x1 ¼" Brass Non Return Valve to the back of the apparatus and tighten up any loose bits.

Once this is done, you'll need to cut a hole into your Pipe Cap to link your delivery pipe to the main system.

Just ensure you sand down the edges to guarantee it's a tight fit. This is where all the air pressure will be. So better sealed is best.

Then arrange your tubes like we show you in the video and put your cap on top whilst sealing it with x2 1¼" Gaskets and strengthen it in place with x1 ¼" Brass Lock Nut.

You'll need this to fit the pressure tank on top of your pump. Preferably after a little greasing.

Here, I've secured mine to a wooden stand with brackets. This is useful but not essential.

Next, all you need to do is link your system to an inlet ... replace the Brass Non Return Valve with the NPT Brass Pump Female Check Foot Valve on top of the pump's last opening and watch water flow from your pump.

This pump has a 1/7 ratio of pumping potential. That means for every foot of hydraulic head, it can lift the water about seven feet (or for each centimeter of head, it'll lift the water seven centimeters).

After that, all that's left is for you to watch as water surges from your pump. Not bad.

This is just one of the many projects we'll share with you in the coming weeks and by no means the best.

So, keep a good eye on your inbox.
