In these days of engineering advancements, we are used to seeing things that were once common go out of fashion. Having said that, the hand well pump is still used all over the world, and it is one of the most useful products many people have. Getting a healthy, fresh drink and being able to maintain hygienic and sanitary conditions in their homes is a luxury for many.
The pitcher pump is sealed, so it extracts without exposing the liquid it brings to the surface to contaminants. Most surface ponds, lakes, and rivers are subject to pollution. The waters deep underground are out of the reach of many primitive cultures, and waterborne illness is a constant threat for much of the world’s population. With a standard manual water pump, a person can ‘lift’ the precious liquid from about twenty feet down. More advanced human-powered units can draw from as much as 300 feet underground.
Drinking, washing, and irrigating are all very important, but there are other purposes that people need this sort of device. Go online to see the variety of tasks that call for special pumps, such as syringe models or siphon units. Often only a small amount of fluid needs to be shifted, or a task only needs to be done once in a while, so manual operation is feasible.
Owning a hand water pump can be a necessity or it can be a curiosity. Constructing one is a good challenge for a family or those who want to be prepared, being both easy and cheap. Many manufacturers also offer pumps of varying levels of sophistication.
