Power Outage Preparation with a Hand Pump
From a Simple Pump customer in Colorado
As solar power for a well is not an option here, and generators will eventually run out of propane/gas (and attract others to my residence), I was happy to find Simple Pump.
I live on the grid but wanted to be able to live without electric power if necessary. I’m a prepper, on a limited basis. I can keep warm with wood, hunt animals for food & protect my property/loved ones. But, until installing a Simple Pump, I had no way of getting access to my well water without electricity.
With current concerns regarding the proven lack of protection of the Internet and thus our power grid, the concerns regarding N. Korea (or others) wishing to harm the U.S. via EMP, or natural disasters like the storm in Puerto Rico, I felt being able to access my well water was an important part of being prepared.
I hope I never have to use it but, as I have a very good well, I will be happy to have such preparation. As will friends who live in my area but who have not thought so far ahead. As solar power for a well is not an option here, and generators will eventually run out of propane/gas (and attract others to my residence), I was happy to find Simple Pump.
I had a well company install the pump for me for a modest fee within a couple of hours. It was the 2nd one they had installed in our area. I find it easy to use. Even my grandchildren can handle the pump.
The Simple Pump is THE world’s most reliable, versatile and easy to use hand water pump.
