    I used to plump. Now I just sit in around the office and dream about plumping.

      I have been plumped up all day today. I hope I get better by morning so I can get back to work.

            windmill cylinder, (a form of a piston pump but some different)
            a hydraulic ram pump,
            Bucket and rope,
            bucket brigade,
            scroll pump,
            suction pump,
            jet pump,
            lobe pump, (blower type),
            siphon pump
            Archimedes' screw, (auger in a pipe)
            vane pump, (sliding vanes in a rotor),
            chain, or belt, bucket conveyor, similar to a bucket and belt, but on a looped chain.
            air bubbler, (a type of well pump that uses air bubbles to lift the water),
            dousing chamber, (maybe more of a valve than pump even tho it used a siphon action)
            Adiabatic cooling (think that is the correct word) (in the transfer of compressed gasses, such as propane, or NH3 by difference of temperature, usually achieved by bleeding off some in the receiving tank)
            air pressure, (transferring from a closed vessel) or (the use of an air stream to move product that is introduced into the stream).
            peristaltic pump (has rollers and a flexible tube that the product is moved through)
            venturi pump.
            and one more the Breast pump, or milking machine, (yes it uses vacuum but it also manipulates it in a way that it will draw the milk by pulsating it)

              Those archimedes screws...


              Are some phsyco farmboy maming devices.
              I still have bad thoughts of having to go into the silo at that certain depth of soybeens to push em into the screw.I knew about where the screw was two foot down,I just felt like I was going to loose my footing then my foot.

                    many a person has been maimed or killed by one of the augers, or it improper use,
                    also suffocated in a bin of grain when one was running and sucked the person under,

                    they also pump water out of a pond to fill a truck Pretty good,
