Water pump for irrigation possibly?
    #562288 - 06/06/11 01:01 AM (5 years, 6 months ago)

Hey everyone,

So I woke up from a nap over the weekend and thought of a design for pumping water.


So my theory to move water from a tank to a garden or possibly something else if someone can think about it.

But anyways if you take a heating source and heat your water you'll cause evaporation to happen. This will cause pressure within the tank forcing water out of the one way valve. Also my thought is if you have a constant stream of water and you can control how much water is flowing into the tank, you might be able to have it build up enouhg pressure causing a back pressure to shut the intake valve and also pushing water out. once the pressure releaves when you use it the water will be flowing out as well as  filling the tank. If you added a fucking big ass magnifying glass to the tank you probably could heat the water quick enough to have an almost instant source of water.
what do you think?

How big is this magnifying glass going to be?

If you have a constant stream of water, why do you even need the tank ?

i was a bit high when i wrote this. ill answer both questions to the best of my knowledge:

The tank would most likely be used to push water from the stream to the garden in rural areas rather than carrying a bucket or canisters full of water. You'd be able to have a hose hooked up so you'd be able to water during mid/afternoon.

I have no clue on how big. I'd imagine you'd be a MASSIVE one. But if you had a dark colored tank and it was in direct sunlight you would not need one.

A quick demostration would be taking a simple camelbak better bottle(the kind with the staw) fill it half full and let sit in direct sunlight for an hour or so. When you come back to check on it when you go to squeeze the straw you'll notice a fair amount of water coming out.

So basicaly this is like a left station.
To take water to a higher elevation.


How high would it lift it and how fast would it flow?

I've seen heating a house with soda cans or beer cans, so I imagine you could get enough heat from this way maybe this would be a better option from the magnifying glass...??? I don't know I'm just trying to work with it, because I like this and I have been trying to think of a way to efficiently do this but I think so have several other people and I have no idea..

Soda cans is definitely possible. I've seen people use soda cans to help heat salt water to make normal drinking water(people in the fiji islands often brought a black plastic bag, few soda cans and a container).

I have no idea how much pressure or distance this could push. I simply just came up with the idea and then wrote this. Have no intention of actually using it but i might try to make a prototype just because i'm quite curious to know. Start with something small? possibly a 2L bottle.

if you have a magnifying glass that big why arent you attaching it to a sea worthy vessel and sailing the high seas conquering all with you photon cannon? :shrug:

i joke

but seriously, im bookmarking this, and hopefully you test this, would be great for sustainable living/gardening

during wet months you could use excess flow for a water garden

it would be "solar" so if you really needed water on a cloudy day, would you be screwed?

i wonder if the UV is sterilizing this water???

You could heat it to pasteurization temp I guess and have like a pressure valve that let go after it got so hot or something. But it would probably do it as the process worked, IDK.
