1862. GODWIN, RICHARD A., 151 Newport Street, Lambeth.

Flood pump, double-actioned; retaining and other valves accessible by simply raising outlet valve.

The working parts being entirely at command, any "stoppage" that cannot be immediately remedied is impossible. As cheap and efficient water raisers they are unequalled; one man with a 4-in. pump, 6-in. stroke, discharging 1,455 gallons of water per hour, being but

15 gallons less than the actual gauge of cylinder, or with 1 per cent. loss. They can be made of any capacity; need no fixing; and their arrangement is so simple that any repairs required to keep them in effective working condition can be done by any unskilled hand.
