It can also be hand turned or otherwise driven to provide a low cost, efficient pump.With its low torque requirements, the pump is particularly suited to be mounted on and driven by a paddle wheel in a current of two feet per second or greater.The thumbnail of the video maybe is missing, but the video is playable.

The spiral pump water wheel harnesses the kinetic energy present in free-flowing water streams and uses this energy to drive a conventional undershot waterwheel. The resulting output is a debris free water that may be used for personal use or for farming use.
