RAM Installation is extremely simple. All that is required is some method of containing the power water at the point of use by constructing a pool or catchpit. This may be formed by a dam across a stream or the construction of a containment area using local materials and being waterproofed by usual methods, or the provision of a prefabricated container of polyethylene or similar material.

From this, running downwards on an even gradient to the point of location of the RAM itself, runs the drive pipe which has to be heavy gauge galvanised steel or cast iron pipe of an appropriate length which is dependent upon the height to which the water is to be pumped. Although it is not essential that this pipe should be buried, it is preferable in order to avoid interference to and from wildlife and unauthorised persons. As far as the delivery pipe is concerned this should be treated conventionally as with any other type of water-pumping system.

6 inch Simple Type Ram
installed for RSPB Devon
A very demanding installation for Gurkha regiment
in Nepal, RAMs operating under 30 foot and pumping to a delivery head of over 1000 feet.

The RAM chamber itself can vary considerably but all that is required is a concrete base which will securely hold the RAM in place but this could equally be constructed from heavy baulks of timber to which the RAM could be bolted. Naturally, some kind of covering (while not essential) is preferable to give the necessary security to the installation.

The whole installation is extremely simple and straight-forward and can be carried out by inexperienced or local labour from details provided by the manufacturer.
