Hydraulic pumps have a real advantage over many other types of pumps for industry and private use. A pump is usually used to transfer substances such as liquids or gasses from one area to another. There are three main types of hydraulic pumps commonly used today, rotary vane type pumps, screw-type pumps, and gear pumps, these pumps are widely used in many industrial applications, for automotive and marine use.
All pumps require some form of external power source to operate; a hydraulic pump uses the kinetic power of water as its main source of operation as they transform mechanical energy to its new form of hydrostatic energy. Hydraulic pumps can be powered by motors that run on petrol, diesel, gas, or electricity to provide momentum.

Some types of hydraulic pumps operate by gravity feed often from the same water source they are pumping from. Others use natural elements, these types of continuous running pumps are often used on farms to provide water. A good example is a windmill that uses a hydraulic pump to lift the water from deep in the ground, powered by the wind above.
For many years hydraulic pumps were very popular around the world for government, Industrial and commercial applications. With the introduction of the modern types of electric and solar-type pumps, hydraulic pumps lost their popularity while these new types of pumps became more fashionable.
