How-to Build a Simple Air Lift Water Pump From a Single Piece Of Tubing

It is easy to make a air lift water pump and the easiest way is using a single piece of tubing with a hole in it.   The parts needed to build a simple air lift water pump are shown below.

  •  Small air pump.  You can use inexpensive air pumps from Walmart in the fish department.
  • 1’4 inch air line.   You can get it in Walmart fish department.

That’s all it takes to make a simple air lift water pump.  The output from these air lift water pumps are in pulses or droplets instead of a flow like standard water pumps.

How it works:  Air traveling down the tubing intermittently escapes from the hole into the water, or reservoir.  Water droplets go into the air stream and ride it up and out of the end of the air tubing which is open for continuous air flow.  This output is in spurts and can be controlled in different ways depending on the irrigation needs of the plants or vegetables that are growing.
