55 gallon barrel pumps

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I need hand pumps for the 55 gallon barrels I have acquired. Does anyone know where I can get some? Harbor Freight has some but say that they are for petroleum products, not water. Why would they not work? Thanks. Dale

You can also use a 12v or manual tire pump to pressure the barrel and get the water out. Less possibility of contamination IMHO. Remember keggers?

I just ordered one from Nitro-Pak in Heber City, Utah.

Basic Hand Pump, Product code 2516, $15.95 + S&H.



Order before the y2k movie, just in case.

US Plastics

Do a product search on "drum pumps."

Note: there seem to be two different qualities of plastic pumps on the market. The first one I got was bad news. Bought one here, and it works fine. It's bigger, better made, and costs the same.

Don't work for these people, but have had very good results ordering from them.

I too have been very pleased with this company and its products/service. Are you aware they are a non profit company? Profits go to feed hungry kids around the world.

Thanks, everyone.

Don't forget to think outside the box.

A hose makes a good siphon.

Nothing else needed.
