|How Rife River Pumps Work|
The whole pump unit is set in slow rotation by means of a propeller, which sets in
motion by streaming water at axial level. The pump is held in position by a mooring or a
stake in the stream bed.
On the inside of pump casing is a helically-wound poly hose. This hose is open at the
rear end and attached to a swivel coupling at the front end.
The pump revolutions result in a alternate inflow of air and water, which forces water
forward via the swivel coupling into the feeder hose which conveys the water to an
intermediate storage tank or place on consumption. The pumped water thus oxygenated is
supplied in a pulsating form.
The materials used guarantee a durable product which allows for rough handling
without breaking down. The pump is designed for continuous attendance-free operation far
from the place of consumption. As a result, the cost of operation and maintenance is
