Bladder pump

Jump to navigationJump to search

A positive displacement pump in which compressed air is forced down an input column to squeeze a water-filled bladder, thereby forcing water up a discharge column to the ground surface. The bladder refills by gravity flow at the end of each lifting cycle, because the bladder unit is below the static water lever. See: positive displacement pump.
