Pelton (PHP) Info


The PowerSpout PHP (Pelton Hydraulic Pump) is a water powered water pump. If you have a small falling stream and want to pump water to a higher tank (up to 100m) for domestic and stock water then this may be the perfect solution.



A PHP pump has the following advantages over a traditional water ram pump:

  • Quiet operation
  • Low cost plastic penstock can be used which is also light and easy to work with
  • Pump different water to the driving source
  • Penstock can meander down the riverbank
  • No heavy concrete foundations
  • Can pump from a small stream with a heavy silt burden and suspended grit particles without the need for a settling tank
  • More than 1 PHP can be stacked on a common penstock, so only 1 size needs to be made resulting in a much better economy of scale and final retail price
  • The same PHP unit be used on a wide range of sites as the cam offset (stroke) is adjustable
  • Lightweight under 18kg
  • Runs without the need for a shock absorbing dampener
  • Oil lubricated for a long life
  • Typical efficiency much higher than a water ram (at high heads)
  • Flow is easily adjustable to meet specific needs
  • Maximum lift/fall ratio >70:1
