River Pump

What is a River Pump?

The RIFE River Pump is a self supporting system for pumping water. It is completely mechanical and operates without electricity or fuel. The power to drive is provided by flowing water. There is only one moving part, the swivel coupling, and it is water-lubricated. All parts are non-corrosive and designed to withstand a high degree of stress. There is virtually no maintenance.

 

Water pumped by the Rife River Pump can be used for household needs, irrigation, ponds, and gardening. It is especially useful in aerating stock tanks and fish tanks since it pumps half water and half air.

 

The Rife River Pump will pump all year through flash floods and frost. In areas with severe winters and danger of damage from floating ice-flows, the Rife River Pump must be removed from operation.

How does a River Pump 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 practically non-existent.

Hose for the Rife River pump is offered by Rife and priced in the chart on the left.

 

If you wish to supply your own hose or pipe you will need to keep the inside diameter 12mm (1/2") or 16mm (5/8), depending on the model, in order for the pump to work. If you can't match the outside diameter you will just need your own connector to go from your hose to the 3/4"NPT connection on the River Pump.

  • Avoid damage to stream banks and ditch edges.
  • Make use of water from springs, ponds, streams, and shallow wells.
  • Install and remove easily.
  • Light-weight.
  • Extremely durable marine grade cast aluminum construction.
  • Does not chip, rust, or heat.
  • Ideal for Rotational Grazing.
  • Safe operation.

Hand Pump

There are five components to a complete hand pump system:

 

1. The Pump Stand

2. The Pump Cylinder

3. Sealed Pipe Flange

4. Pump Rod

5. Drop Pipe

 

The Pump Stand

The pump stand is the unit that you see, it attaches everything together and delivers the water. There are two pumps stands for you to chose from:

 

The Hp-100 pump stand features a simple fabricated design. The 12 gauge sheet metal body provides strength and longevity to the pump. The handle is counter-weighted to aid in lifting the water out of the well. This pump stand is manufactured by Rife which means there is no waiting time on shipping.

 

The 11HD pump stand is a cast iron model. It features adjustable strokes and a multi-position cap. This pump stand will be shipped separately from the rest of your order.

The Pump Cylinder

Solid brass cylinders with a brass check valve and a two leather brass plunger. See table below for sizing the right cylinder for your well.

Sealed Pipe Flange

Sealed pipe flanges attach the pump base to the well casing. They are available in three sizes to fit your well casing size.

5"            Part # SPF5

6"            Part # SPF6

Pump Rod

The pump rod connects the cylinder to the lever in the pump stand. It t is 7/16" threaded and available in 18 or 21ft lengths.

 

For each piece you join together you will need a rod coupler. A coupler will be included with the cylinder and will not be needed to attach to the HP-100 stand, but one will be needed for the 11HD. You will match the drop pipe to the correct rod length to reach your well depth.

Drop Pipe

The drop pipe will be 1-1/2" PVC or galvanized. and will screw into the pump stand about halfway up. It is best to determine the distance of pump rod needed to reach your depth and match the drop pipe to that length. You will need a female end to screw into the pump stand and cylinder.

Nose/Pasture Pump

What is a Nose or Pasture Pump?

The RIFE Pasture/Nose Pump is a unique pump that uses animal power to pump water. The pump can be used by cows, horses, and even bison. Each pump is good for 30 horses or dry cows. The RIFE Pasture/Nose Pumps are base on the Pavlovian Theory of conditioned behavior. Animals learn that pushing the activator reward them with water it takes between one minute and a couple of hours for livestock to learn how to operate the pump. Increasing costs of hay production and growing interest in short duration grazing (using paddocks) are encouraging more and more livestock farmers to take advantage of the economic and environmental benefits of pasturing. Pastures need water.

 

The RIFE Pasture/Nose Pump brings water to the pasture conveniently, economically, and without polluting water sources with animal wastes and eroding embankments. The RIFE Pasture/Nose Pump is mounted (with screws) on a timber platform that is anchored securely to the ground with wooden stakes. The supply pipe is connected to the rear of the pump at one end and a foot valve at the other. Both connections are made completely air tight by using hose clips the foot valve is kept clear of the ditch bed by latching the pipe to a board laid across the banks.
