The FloJak Plus is a 2" diameter hand well pump system featuring a rugged, sanitary grade stainless steel upper. It is capable of lifting water 100 feet from the static water level in your well.
This stainless steel hand well pump utilizes an innovative pumping mechanism to push water up from the submerged end, through a hollow sucker-rod, exiting water through the stainless steel handle. This emergency well pump is capable of delivering pressurized water into the household plumbing system. This convenience will enable normal flushing, showering and running water at the sink for washing. This feature is accomplished by pumping water through a high-pressure GatorHyde hose which connects from your FloJak pump to an outdoor faucet (or any other available access point).
The stainless steel hand well pump comes with a universal mounting bracket which will secure FloJak to the top of any open well casing 4"or larger. For more permanent installations, a common well seal may be utilized to secure the FloJak pump while accommodating the existing electric pump, and providing a water-tight cap for the well.
FloJak stainless steel hand well pump is a unique "Tee-Handle" pump with a variable stroke capability ranging from a few inches to almost 5 feet. This allows your FloJak pump to instantly adjust to a comfortable pumping position for any operator...short or tall. The Tee-Handle design utilizes upper body strength and weight for pumping, and is ergonomically superior to other designs. This emergency well pump system does not require an additional lever handle accessory until lifting water from more than 50 feet, or developing the extra force needed to pressurize the household water system. There are two lever arm handle options for reducing pumping work. MiniJak is a lower cost single-grip lever, which is great for lifting up to 100 feet. PowerJak is a longer double-grip lever for deeper depths or pressurizing for running water. Both lever handles bolt easily to the mounting bracket that comes mounted to each FloJak pump.
This emergency well pump system may be assembled to any length in 5 foot increments. It is important that the assembled length extend well below the static water level to provide a good reservoir of available water, protection from draught and cleaner water which is more thouroughly filtered with depth. Additional pipe is available in 50-foot extension kits.
Assembly of this stainless steel hand well pump is not difficult or lengthy, and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. Allow an hour or so for assembly, 24 hours for the glue-joints to cure, and 30 minutes or so for installation into the well, depending on the length of your system. The Tee-Handle will deliver from 5 to 10 gallons per minute depending on the distance to water, and how hard you want to work! Lever handles make the work easier, but will shorten the stroke, which also reduces the stroke volume.
The FloJak emergency well pump comes from the factory with a weep-hole at about 5' from the top. This will drain the water off after pumping to help avoid damage from freezing. Lower weep holes may be easily added prior to installation to protect your pump in more extreme cold conditions.
The shelf life for FloJak stainless steel hand well pump will easily exceed 20 years. Make certain that you have everything required so that you are prepared when you need water.

One more step to living off the grid...Flojak has made that possible..Good product, practical in all respects, easy to use!!
The one hundred foot well pump is a great item for the money. Each T handle stroke generates some real water output! I can hook it to the house with the check valve or run the hose to the exterior faucet and get enough pressure to fill four sinks, two toilets, and a bathtub. The shower, not so much. The installation required about three hours assisting my well pump guy with some size adjustments to well cap. Very professional customer service staff!
I have installed 3 of your pumps and all my customers are happy. I have had to make brackets to fit your metal bracket adapted to our local codes. also to steady the pump while using the power jack. The only thing that displeases me is the 50' safety cord. When you order a 100 foot kit it should come with a 100' cord. Makes a ugly knot in the installation. Plus the knot cannot be pulled through the well seal. I tape the rope to each section of pipe. Sincerely, Granvil Holt
After installation, I didn't even use the power jack accessory and when I pumped it, it shot a bold stream 20+ feet. Even the plumbing company that assisted in my installation, (as I had other work needed at the house), were so impressed the owners and installers are ordering pumps for themselves. The plumbing company is the largest in the area, have installed other makers and were sold on FloJack! I will most likely use the Power Jack when needed to pressurize the entire house. But it pumps so easily now even my wife should have no problem accessing water. Great product, easy ordering and fast delivery! I have recommended to others, so keep the production lines churning!
