At our local Prepper Group meeting, ran across someone that is using this pump as the emergency backup to the power well pump. Since we are always working toward being more self sufficient, we took a closer look at this one. We will be ordering one for our homestead, the person at the meeting was going to use it at their bug out location. He purchased the pump unit, which is what you are buying. You then get detailed instructions on how to put the rest of the piping together along with how to build a “T Handle” for the pump.
Now we have not used this pump but the reports that I am getting sound great and I did check with the guy who came up with these that whey will work on our depth of 130′ to water. The one thing you will have to deal with if you have a well, is the fact that without the utility power, you will need another means to pump your water. So that’s a generator, solar/wind pump or by hand. We have the generator covered, will get the hand pump in place and then look at solar pumping as another option. You should have three ways to start a fire, you should have 3 ways to get water as well!
