Expert Answer:

There are two general types of reciprocating pumps.    The piston pump and the diaphragm pump.

These types of pump operate by using a reciprocating piston or diaphragm.   The liquid enters a pumping chamber via an inlet valve and is pushed out via a outlet valve by the action of the piston or diaphragm.
