On this mission you will discover ways to make a customizable PVC hand pump that can create vacuum suction, pump water, or compress air.
A pre-requisite to creating the pump will probably be 2 home made examine valves. You possibly can discover ways to make these low-cost PVC examine valves right here:
My pal NightHawkInLight made one other model of a vacuum pump. Test it out right here:

Energy instruments, like a desk noticed, pose dangers of great harm. Satisfactory coaching and expertise are required earlier than working. The outcomes and claims of this pump are based mostly solely on my private experiences with the one demonstrated within the video. Particular person outcomes could range. The pump is a straightforward design and never made, or claimed, for use in any heavy obligation operations, or comparatively excessive pressures. Use of this content material is at your individual threat.

Mission Impressed By:
That is an unique design, based mostly off an image I as soon as discovered on a google picture search. (I have never been capable of finding the image since)
Mission Historical past & Extra Information:
I’ve wished to construct a PVC water pump for awhile, however the examine valves had been round $10.00 every. That appeared a bit of steep for a PVC construct, so I made my very own, which you’ll see in a unique mission.
I used to be impressed on the pump piston and chamber by an image I noticed on a google picture search by somebody who used the 1-1/4″ and 1″ sizes of tubes, and he talked about he minimize the grooves for the O-rings on a desk noticed. That was a brand new thought to me and gave me the inspiration to place this collectively.
I am additionally planning to make use of this piston design in future initiatives that require pneumatic and hydraulic pistons.
In my testing, the valves work nice with air and water. I did not have any gauges to check the power of the vacuum so cannot say how sturdy the vacuum can be, but it surely actually does create one.
Whereas there are some particular instruments used to create this pump (desk noticed and forester bit), I imagine with a bit of creativity the pump might be made simply as successfully with out them, making this a easy and duplicatable design.
