Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jandy Was exactly what I was hoping for.
With just a few pumps, it pulls water from a 25 ft. well. Although, I've only had it working for about a month, there have been no problems thus far.

Great for those on well systems 20 feet above sea level. Installed directly on well head with check valves is a challenge but worth it when the power goes out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fran Great preparedness item.
Actually I haven't taken this one out of the box yet but I have one just like it I bought 2-3 years ago and it works great. If our power grid goes down this will be a saving grace for many people. Both of mine are for watering the gardens at two locations when power is not available and in the greenhouse where an electric pump would freeze up in the winter. Yesterday's technology, today's preparedness.

The leather gasket and cup are susceptible to drying out and losing suction unless the pump is used often. The pump is also susceptible to rust at the joint where it needs to be unscrewed to replace the cup. Mine froze up completely with rust and cannot be disassembled. I'll need to replace the whole pump.

Easy to install and it primed and started pumping water.
Was great to have it delivered to my house.
Have had it only a month so hope it continues to perform.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 58938 Works very well!
The pump was used as a prop in a play. We installed it in half a wine barrel. It was easy to prime and pumped well. The only flaw was that the cotter pin holding the handle broke. It needs to be stronger.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Guss Solid and dependable.
The pump is as solid and dependable a product can be. Excellent craftsmanship made with quality materials. Should last many many years of use. The components are so simple that if it were to malfunction, it is easily repaired.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dora This product appears heavy duty.
When our pitcher pump no longer worked, the one from Home Depot appeared to be of good value for the money and sturdy, being cast iron. It was as they described. Very heavy duty and pumped water easily. Only had to purchase a small party to make it fit onto the existing pipe.
