The Canzee pump is a direct action pump initially developed in New Zealand. It uses a simple pumping principle. It consists of two pipes, one slightly larger than the other. At the bottom of each pipe is a non-return valve. The pumping movement raises and lowers the inner pipe. Tap into your natural well or reservoir with the help of a deep water well pump from Lehman's. These rugged, American-made pumps are designed to pull water from your well or cistern deeper than 20 feet below ground, and some units equipped to pump water from as deep as feet below ground.

LIFT PUMP STAND - (11HA) is recommended for shallow wells less than 25 feet, has a 6 inch stroke only and a multi-position cap. The 11HA pump does not have a sealed packing in the top of the pump and is therefore more suitable for watering flowers and livestock than for drinking water. Repairs outside of Routine Maintenance are recorded in a separate Maintenance Log Book. Water Well. Operation of the three (3) water well turbine centrifugal pumps is simple. The pump are basically maintenance free. They are started by the low level pressure and shut down by the high level pressure switches on the Treated Water Storage Tank. rural water supply. It has been prepared to help communities and individuals discuss and make decisions about local water supply issues. INTRODUCTION Private wells in rural and suburban areas provide water for 40 million Americans every day. Plans to provide a public water supply in a rural area often cause local controversy.   The water level in a well can also be lowered if other wells near it are withdrawing water.

In regular practice, water has to be poured into the pump head by the operator, every time the pump is emptied by a leaking foot valve. Thus, the danger exists that the well can be contaminated through polluted water used for priming. It is easy to make replace existing water hand pumps with a new water well pump system. The Various Hand-Pump Systems. Many people in developing countries still use hand-pumps to access safe drinking water. Main principles of hand-pumps. There are many different types of hand pumps. Most of them are ‘displacement’ pumps, and therefore have. From Handpumps to Water Supply Originally conceived as the Handpump Technology Network (HTN), the RWSN broadened its mission from handpumps to focus on rural water supply, and specifically improvements in the application of ground water technologies for rural communities. RWSN’s objective is create a vibrant knowledge exchange network.
