This is a technical paper that was part of the CD3WD series by Alex Weir. It discusses various Hand Pumps for wells and drinking water supplies. Over the last few days, and in the coming week, I have a lot of PDFs on water, hydroelectric power, and other water related posts. Having water does no good if you can’t pump it to collect it.
Electric well pumps are great, but the purpose of this site it to give options “what if” knowing what kind of manually powered option are are available, and to some extend how to make them could be very useful in the event of some catastrophic disaster.Hand Pumps
