After you have installed a new well system or provided maintenance to your well you should “shock” the system with bleach so that your water and pipes do not contain harmful bacteria. We have been exploring ways to get water from your well in the event you have no power for a long period of time, but we must be concerned with maintaining a clean well and providing good sanitized water.

Out of all the hand pumps we have talked about the EMAS hand pump is the best because of it’s simplicity. You can make it completely with PVC pipe, 2 marbles and some very cheap parts for the handle. As far as I can tell this fellow, Paul Cloesen, created these hand pumps for use in impoverished countries for those who need water. He is really quite inspiring and impressive when you look at all of the simple ways he has designed for well drilling, heating water, cement holding tanks and water distribution.

It’s pretty simple and just involves constructing a bucket tied to a rope and either using your own muscle power or a mechanical device to lower and raise your bucket.

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink

That’s how I felt in the summer of 2009. Our water well went nuts and after 3 months of dragging hoses and filling buckets we finally got our water back. It lasted until February of 2010 when it went completely out and we had to get a new well. So I can feel the pain of those having no water and it is the one thing I focused on first.
