CLAIMS

1. A hydraulic pump for adding a predetermined volume of additive fluid to a primary fluid, the pump comprising:

a main body having a first inlet for receiving a primary fluid, a second inlet for receiving an additive fluid, and an outlet for discharging a fluid, wherein the fluid comprises a fluid mixture of the primary fluid and the additive fluid or the primary fluid;

a piston sealingly mounted in the main body for reciprocating movement in response to flow of the primary fluid through the main body, the piston dividing the main body into a first and a second chamber;

a first valve for selectively transmitting the primary fluid from the inlet into the first and second chambers;

a second valve for selectively transmitting the fluid from the first and second chambers to the outlet;

an operable interconnection, between, the piston and the first and second valves comprising: a linkage mechanism and a spring attached thereto and responsive to the reciprocating movement of the piston for alternating the first and second valves between a first state, wherein, the first valve transmits primary fluid from the first inlet to the first chamber and the second valve transmits fluid from the second chamber to the outlet, and a second state, wherein said first valve transmits primary fluid from the first inlet to the second chamber and the second valve transmits fluid from the first chamber to said outlet;

an extractor piston attached to the piston and seaHngiy mounted in a third chamber formed therein the main body;

a source of additive fluid commurricably connected to the third chamber: and the extractor piston slidably mounted in the third chamber such that the extractor piston reciprocates in response to movement of the piston for pumping additive fluid from the. source through the second inlet to the second chamber.

2. The hydraulic pump of claim 1, wherein the additive is a chemical additive,

3. The hydraulic pump of claim 1, wherein the primary fluid is water.

4. The hydraulic pump of claim i, the first inlet comprising a threaded connection, for coupling a primary fluid source thereto.

5. The hydraulic pump of claim 1 , the second inlet comprising a threaded connection for coupling an additive fluid source thereto.

6. The hydraulic pump of claim 1 , the outlet comprising a threaded connection for coupling a fluid conveyance apparatus thereto.

7. The hydraulic pump of claim 1, wherein the main body is constructed of plastic.

8. The hydraulic pump of claim 1 , the operable interconnection further comprising:

the linkage mechanism being coupled to a push linkage and a pull linkage that are in torn coupled to a valve bridge thai, is operably interconnected with the first valve and the second valve.

9. The hydraulic pump of claim 1 , wherein the source of the additive fluid is a container or cartridge configured to mate with the second inlet,

10. The hydraulic pump of claim 9. wherein the container or cartridge mates with the second inlet using a threaded connection.

1 1 . A hydraulic pump for adding a predetermined volume of additive fluid to a primary fluid, the pump comprising:

a main body having a first inlet means for receiving a primary fluid, a second inlet means for receiving an additive fluid, and an outlet means for discharging a fluid, wherein the fluid comprises a fluid mixture of the primary fluid and the additive fluid or the primary fluid;

a piston sealmgly mounted in the main body for reciprocating movement in response to flow of the primary fluid through the main body, the piston dividing the main body into a first and a second chamber;

a first valve means for selectively transmitting the primary fluid from the inlet into the first and second chambers;

a second valve means for selectively transmitting the fluid from the first and second chambers to the outlet;

means for operably interconnecting the piston and the first and second valve means comprising: a linkage means and a spring means attached thereto and responsive to the reciprocating movement of the piston for alternating the first and second val ve means between a first state, wherein the first valve means transmits primary fluid from the first inlet means to the first chamber and the second valve means transmits fluid from the second chamber to the outiet means, and a second state, wherein said first valve means transmits primary fluid from the first inlet means to the second chamber and the second valve means transmits fluid from the first chamber to said outlet means;
