How does the hand pump look like?
A hand pump is usually built by placing a pipe in a ground through which water can be lifted. This type of a pump is commonly used in allotment gardens and summer houses, where there is no electricity that could power an electric pump. A force rod placed on top of the device is used for pumping water.
Wells for hand pumps are made in two ways:
- by placing a pipe with filter at the end in a ground;
- by installing a casing tube, then placing a pipe with filter at the end and removing the casing tube.
The first solution can usually reach 10 m deep and water come from the upper layers of aquifer, the second solution may reach deeper layers, where water is at pressure.
