An ideal alternative to a cast iron pump. Can be used as a backup to an electric pump during a power failure or where there is no electricity. Made of ABS, PVC, brass and stainless steel, it is light weight and will not rust or corrode. Produces up to 40 psi of discharge pressure, and can push water up to 82 feet overhead. The closed design helps prevent contaminants from entering a well. Includes T fitting and shutoff valves for easy priming. The base can be mounted to any strong horizontal surface using four 1/4" fasteners, a 3" center hole is required. The hand pump simply sits in the base, and if the waterlines are connected using our AGI-100A unions, the pump can easily be disconnected, removed and then reinstalled and reconnected as needed.
NOTE - this pump does not drain by lifting the handle all the way up.
