This is a very economical pump for shallow wells (20' deep or less), rain barrels or cisterns.
It attaches to common 1 1/4" I.D. pipe fittings (available from any plumbing supply store) and has a replaceable leather flapper valve and leather plunger. Although replacement leather gaskets are offered, you should get a decade or more of service before needing replacements.
Safe for use with drinking water, it also makes a great emergency pump for wells, cisterns or sumps. In the garden, it is an attractive and useful pump on barrels or near ponds.
Just like the antique ones, this cast-iron pump can be left outdoors indefinitely.
Measures 15" overall. Installation and maintenance instructions are included. Weighs 16 lb.
