The riddle of the ages solved!
How the Great Pyramid At Giza
was built, and Why!
Frequently Asked Questions
How can the Great Pyramid be a water pump when there is no water near it?
If a pump is a pump, it doesn't matter where the water is; it is still
a pump! There is no water near the great Pyramid, NOW, to be
sure. But that has not always been the case. The ancient lake
of "Moeris" surrounded the Great Pyramid. Perring himself, found
"Nile Earth" in the Great Pyramid and Herodatus describes the two large
Pyramids at Giza as being surrounded by water. The Pharaoh's Pump
did have a readily available source of water.
the Great Pyramid is much more that just a Water Pump?!?!?!?
Water has a very high valuable in the center of a desert. It is the
source of life and prosperity.
Egypt in ancient times was the granary for the ancient world.
Food was plentiful and cheap. The Great Pyramid was and is many many
things. But first and foremost it is a great machine. It is
a machine that can transform the barren desert into a bountiful harvest.
It is a machine that changed wasteland into land that groaned with crops
or blossomed with roses. The Pyramid Pump meant freedom from want,
abundant food, a glorious conquest of environment, and social security.
The Great Pyramid was the Ancient's high water mark in mind over matter!
Also, water power can be used, and historically hs been used to run
a wide variety of machinery. The northeastern states of the USA developed
manufacturing because of the availability of water power. Factories
were located near fast moving streams and rivers to harness water power.
Even Electricity is in reality a form of water power, Most electricity
in the Pacific northwest is hydroelectric. (Electricity from water power!)
I do not know every use the Ancients used water power for, but I do know
that they used water power.
Great Pyramid is a pump, then are you saying all pyramids are pumps?
Each of the ancient pyramids are unique in their size and construction.
They are made with sides of different angles of assent. No two pyramids
have the same chambers or passages although there are similarities and
great differences. Some pyramids were built of differing materials
and with wide variances in precision. The Great Pyramid has many unique
features that set it apart from the other pyramids.
(One main difference is that each side of the Great Pyramid is equally
divided from the apex to the center of the base. This feature provides
increased strength against water pressure from within the
Great Pyramid during construction.) The nature of these features
(and many others) indicate that the original builders used hydraulic construction
techniques to build the Great Pyramid. Evidence indicates that the
original builders' purpose for the Great Pyramid was to pump water for
irrigation from the ancient lake Moeris to the surrounding area including
the Libyan desert uphill from the Great Pyramid. Water power could also
be used for many things. Fountains, palace water works, or even to power
machinery. In the pacific northwest waterpower from dams make electric
power. Water power hs many uses.
Great Pyramid was an irrigation pump, what area was irrigated?
The rocky knoll that the Great pyramid is built is not higher than the
surrounding landscape. The site of the Great Pyramid is on gradual
hillside. The Libyan desert is to the west is about 100 feet higher than
the base of the building.
Pharaoh's Pump stuff hallucinations of a raving manic?
No, not at all. The findings in Pharaoh's Pump are acknowledged to
be true and correct by a wide number of people. The best example
of the acknowledgment of the validity of the book Pharaoh's Pump is in
the book 5/5/2000 Ice: The Ultimate Disaster, by Richard W. Noone.
The changes of that book which necessitated the second edition are mainly
an expansion of the chapter that speaks of Pharaoh's Pump.
Ed Kunkel's ideas accepted by most Egyptologists?
Yes there is controversy about the book Pharaoh's Pump among Egyptologists.
The best way to explain this conflict is to point out another one.
Currently there is great controversy as to the age of the Sphinx.
Geologists around the world have ascertained that the Sphinx is much older
than the Egyptologists say it is. A TV program broadcast across
the nation demonstrated that the geologic aspects of the Sphinx proves
it was made farther back in antiquity than any Egyptologist will admit.
Egyptologists have a vested interest and are promoting their own agenda
that coincides with the volumes of books written and number of college
classes taught. If they ever admit that the Sphinx is over twice
as old as they previously thought, then their books and classes become
obsolete. It is for the same reasons that they haven't acknowledged
the truth about Pharaoh's Pump.
about the Archeology evidence that the area around the Great Pyramid is
riddled with burial sites and tombs. Why build a water pump in the
middle of a grave yard?
To be sure there is water pump surrounded by graves. Were the graves
there first or was the Great pyramid there first? It is the contention
of most researchers (except traditional Egyptologists) that the Great Pyramid
predates Dynastic Egypt.
always been told about the slaves pulling blocks up the ramp.
Read the book and you will come to understand the great abilities and intelligence
of the Ancients! The book is interesting and compelling. It
is the only volume on the great pyramid that actually makes sense. Plus
it is provided with a money back guarantee!! Sure, people can stack a few
rocks into a pile and say that is how it was made. It is odd that
they never demonstrate how the magnificent 100 ton megalithic stones were
set in place. The measure in how the stones were moved is with the
largest ones, not the littlest!
Great Pyramid was built as a tomb for a dead Pharaoh.
There is little if any evidence that any Pharaoh was laid to rest in the
Great Pyramid. What others believe to be very ineffective obstacles
to tomb robbers were actually various types of valves. Most of these
so-called obstacles (in truth, valves) in the passages of the Great Pyramid
have been destroyed but some of the valve seats are still there as are
the eight inch round sockets that the valves pivoted in. In the anti-chamber
there is still a part of a valve that moves up in a slot. Early explorers
write of the precision of these movable parts. These pivoting and
moving working parts of the pump were not made to stop tomb robbers.
Great Pyramid was built using simple tools and superb organization.
The above statement is incorrect. People who tell you the above is
how the great Pyramid was built are wrong. To be sure, any major
task requires great organization, but it took much more than organization
to make the great pyramid. Case in point. With 100,000 slaves,
simple tools and all the organization in the world you could NOT recreate
even ONE casing stone to the optical precision of the originals on the
Great Pyramid!! In fact, since the construction of the pyramids not
one casing stone has been made with simple tools. The reason is:
it is impossible to make even one casing stone by hand using chisels and
hammers. The book Pharaoh's Pump talks about some of the mechanization
used in the construction of the Great Pyramid.
is the Pharaoh's Pump Foundation?
The Pharaoh's Pump Foundation is an educational 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization
dedicated to the preservation and understanding of the construction and
purpose of the Great Pyramid. This includes making available the
book Pharaoh's Pump to interested people and to spread the information
as to the true nature of the construction and purpose of the Great Pyramid.
Another goal of the Pharaoh's Pump Foundation is to create a working model
of the Great Pyramid to the scale of 1/2 inch to the foot. (two stories
is the Pharaoh's Pump Foundation funded?
Like most worthwhile endeavors the Pharaoh's Pump Foundation is funded
on a "shoe-string." Although we are just getting started, most funding
is received from private sources and individuals. The Pharaoh's Pump
Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization so those donations are
tax deductible. There have been a few donations in the form of money,
office supplies, some computer equipment (still need a laptop) and materials
for the construction of the scale model of Pharaoh's Pump.
do the funds go for?
Funds are use to maintain the internet site, printing costs, long distance
charges, postage and other assorted costs related to providing the information
concerning Pharaoh's Pump. The Pharaoh's Pump Foundation is also
in the preliminary stages of constructing a working model of Pharaoh's
Pump for demonstration purposes. The model will be 1/2 inch to
the foot (two stories high) and will demonstrate the true purpose of the
Great Pyramid in action! This will be an expensive undertaking, (as
was the Great Pyramid) but it will demonstrate the purpose for the puzzling
aspects of the Great Pyramid.

the Pharaoh's Pump Foundation take credit cards?
Not at this time. That may change if there seems to be an interest
in credit card purchases and donations. PERSONAL CHECKS are gladly
the book Pharaoh's Pump.
The book Pharaoh's Pump is a book that is the culmination of Edward J.
Kunkel's life long research into the mysteries and function of the Great
Pyramid at Giza. Through exhaustive study and without preconceived
notions he was able to solve the riddle of the ages; how the Great Pyramid
was built. He describes in great detail the reason and purpose of
every aspect of the odd interior of the Great Pyramid including features
to the pyramid that were not described before he published his work.
Almost all who read the book and think about what it says comes to the
conclusion that Pharaoh's Pump is correct.
