A hand pump is a simple, yet effective way to access clean water. Hand pumps are often used in rural areas where there is no access to running water or in disaster areas to provide clean water to people who have been displaced from their homes. They can be especially useful in times of flooding, winter storms, or during power outages when automatic pumps cannot run.
Hand pumps are one of the most economical, yet simple solutions to providing an ample supply of clean, drinkable water in a variety of areas, ranging from suburban to rural. They also eliminate the risk of people, specifically children, from falling into open wells, which can be incredibly dangerous.
There are many different hang pumps available; some are designed for use in shallow wells, while others are designed to be used in deeper wells. Some hand pumps are manual, yet others work alongside a motor in case of an outage. The cost of a hand pump can vary depending on the type of pump and the depth of the well but are relatively inexpensive compared to many other options.
Some benefits of using hand pumps include:
- Ease of use: Hand pumps are easy to use and do not require any electricity or other power source. They are incredibly convenient, especially in times of power outages or weather emergencies.
- Reliable: Hand pumps are reliable and can provide a constant supply of clean water. No matter the circumstance, a hand pump will be a dependable option for fresh, clean water.
- Durable: Hand pumps are heavy-duty and can survive harsh conditions for extended periods of time.
- Affordable: Hand pumps are a low-cost way to provide clean, potable water anywhere it is needed.
