Affordable PVC pumps designed for pumping 100 feet or less from static water level, and in warmer climates. Many customers install the Original permanently, and many store their FloJak Originals so that they have back-up options when power is unavailable. This hand water pump for wells is easy to install, and like all of our hand water pumps, it is designed to co-exist in your well with the electric pump without interfering. Both systems operate independently, and at the same time. The Original hand water pump for wells is capable of pumping pressurized water into your home plumbing so that you can have running water for flushing, showering or washing dishes.
It is advisable to install your hand pump for wells so that the foot-valve (water inlet end) is as far below static water level as possible to protect from draught and seasonal water table fluctuation. Doing so will also provide additional water reserve in the well while drawing from deeper, cleaner water sources. Stay 10 to 20 feet off the bottom to avoid pumping silt.
