  • Run water to it in a ¾” black poly pipe
  • Lay out a ½” pipe to the tank you want to fill.

See the Installation Instructions for details.

The High Lifter Model 9:1 will give you up to 750 gallons per day if your tank is 600 feet above your water source, maximum lift is 900 feet. For details, see the Output Chart below. It will pump twice as high as the 4.5:1 model but will only give half as much water. For lifts less than than 450 feet, the High Lifter Model 4.5:1 is usually a better choice.

  1. one of the best products I've ever seen 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2015

    would have rated the the pump 4 and 1/2 stars but I see the newer pumps have stronger outlet pressure lines and fittings. I purchesed my first highlighter from Thad around 4 years ago and it has exceeded all expectations. I live onto of a Ridge and have a creek flowing roughly 900 vertical feet below, that is quite the hike to get to. I run 1/2 inch schedule 40 pvc down from the creek to my tank and 3/4 in poly line from the source (Trashcan) to my pump. once I got the right outlet line to hold the pressure (close to 500 psi) the pump worked flawlessly and has gone as long a 4 months on a continuous run before stopping in witch time i should have cleaned the filter about three times but wanted to test the durability. Some of my neighbors bought pumps for over 25 thousand dollars and I'm getting roughly 750 gallons a day without doing anything for a total cost of 1200 dollars. I bought my second highlighter about two years ago as a backup bud decided to test running two pumps through one 1/2 inch line at the same time and they have been running together for the last couple of days. I do find that the website is hard to order parts from but whenever I call Thad, he places my order in minuets.

  2. You will not be disappointed by ordering here. 5 Star Review

    For all of you considering buying a Highlifter or other water pump or accessory from Thad at Humboldt Solar, you will not be disappointed.
    My Tanks are at 2000 feet elevation in Big Sur. Below the tanks...450 vertical feet. (and 2600 ground feet...think sloping mountainside) is where my
    spring flows out of the rock. My 1" pvc line comes down from the spring (600 ground feet...again, think sloping mountain side) and this 600' gives me at grand total of 100 feet of
    elevation "fall". Meaning it's like going from my spring, and waterfalls straightdown 100 vertical feet to my highlifter pump.
    The pump, then pushed the water at a 9:1 ratio, up to my tanks. 24/7! (This means for every 9 gallons that flows through the pump...one gallon goes uphill to my tank. )
    I have about 2.5 gallon per minute flow out of my spring. Consistent. Year round.

    That was not only knowledgeable about the part I bought from him, but was able to accurately help me with getting more water flow from the spring.
    His gauge that I ordered arrived well packaged and his shipping service was fast.
    I highly recommend anyone to do business with him and I will certainly be coming back.
    Thank you.

  3. Very pleased with High Lifter 5 Star Review

    My experience can’t help but compare the high lifter to an older style ram pump, which was in place when we bought our property in the summer of 2000. Our situation requires pumping water about 275 feet up from a creek to storage tanks near our home. The ram pump is an impressive device, but it is very heavy and needs a specific infrastructure what with its concrete pad and 2” x 45’ steel drive pipe. I wasn’t aware of other “water powered” choices until the fall of 2013 when a problem developed that I wasn't able to solve.
    After researching alternatives, I learned about the High Lifter. Long story short; I set up two “easy to rinse” tanks side by side to replace the old settling tank, ran new poly pipe, and installed the pump. During these modifications, before actual full system operation, and during a cold spell, I was thrilled to simply disconnect the High Lifter and bring it up to our garage to prevent possible freezing. When I got the inlet side of the system dialed, I reinstalled the pump and it has been working trouble free since Dec. 2013.
