Five pumps or water-raising machines are described by al-Jazari in his monumental treatise of mechanics Al-Jami' bayn al-‘ilm wa 'l-‘amal al-nafi' fi sina'at al-hiyal (A Compendium on the Theory and Useful Practice of the Mechanical Arts).

THE DOUBLE-VALVE SLUICE.—This apparatus answers the same purpose as the lever sluice, but is more applicable in cases where the reservoir is deep, and the embankment consequently large. it also acts as a water-sluice, by opening and passing the extra water whenever it passes in the reservoir the least above the height assigned, and thereby.
