UPDATE: Now there is a animated image of the Pharaoh's Pump. See how the pump worked! Also there is an image map that you can use to see a detailed explanation how each part functioned.
At the same time the air in the subterranean chamber has been greatly
compressed by the water traveling down the descending passage. The
check valve in the top of the descending passage closes when the air in
the subterranean chamber is compressed to the maximum. Then the compressed
air pushes water through the "Jet," and the lateral connection.
This action pushes water up, thereby pushing up underneath on the water
in the Grand Gallery. This force pushing up on the water in the Grand Gallery
is somewhat similar to the workings of a hydraulic ram pump but on a gigantic
When the vacuum valve is opened, the partial vacuum created by the fire is replaced by fresh air and the water starts to move back down the Grand Gallery. The normally closed check valve in the antechamber is opened and the check valve just below the Grand Gallery is closed. This moving ponderous column of water lowers and is directed into the "Queen's Chamber." This movement of water compresses the air in the upper part of the Queen's Chamber. The compressed air stores energy that is use to push water up into the King's Chamber. This action compresses air in the upper part of the King's Chamber and water is pushed out of the pump through the vents. The antechamber valve shuts. The highly compressed air in the upper part of the Queen's Chamber forces water up into the King's Chamber. The discharge tubes in the King's Chamber are located in the wall about 5 feet high. Above that, air is compressed by the water coming from the Queen's Chamber. This compressed air in this secondary chamber forces the water out the discharge tubes.
The animation shows the water exiting the pump in a pulsating manner. In reality, the stored energy in the form of compressed air allows the water output from the pump to be constant. The Queen's compression chamber supplies the King's compression chamber; which discharges water, to the outside. In the Pyramid pump, the lower diagonal holds 88 tons of water; while the upper diagonal has a capacity of 300 tons of water. The pump itself when full, holds about 600 tons of water. Modern hydraulic engineers, have a long way to go, to catch up with the Ancient Engineers.
The Pharaoh's Pump Foundation is dedicated in both providing availability for the information in the book Pharaoh's Pump and WE ARE GOING TO BUILD A PUMP! The FAQ page has information on this project.
