The Northern Industrial Hand Pump can be used this way by running the hose through the pump so that when the hose is turned on, the water would flow out the pump.

Question

My well is 120 ft. deep with 80 ft. of standing water. Can you get THIS one that will go that deep our piping that can be added on to it?

Also, can this be installed with the existing electric pump and wiring left in place? I do NOT want any information shared about me with anyone. I ONLY want these 2 questions answered.

The max suction depth this cast iron pump will transfer from is 19-1/2 feet. It won't have the suction power(even with additional piping) to draw water up the additional 20 feet needed for your application.

Do NOT leave this pump out in freezing temperatures. Normally, water is retained in the cylinder within the top half of the pump. When it freezes, the cast iron cracks. Subsequently will will not hold a prime. I learned this the hard way. The easy way out is to remove the top half of the pump and bring it indoors for the winter. Two bolts are all that hold the top half to the bottom.

I bought a second pump just so I could replace the cracked top of the first one. (Until I did that a bicycle inner tube tightly wrapped around the fine crack in the casing worked passably well for a year.)

The Northern Industrial Large Cast Iron Hand Pump should be removed before hard freeze weather. Cast iron parts can crack or split if left out.

Question

Water table/pump capability

I am drilling a water well 50 feet deep for drinking quality.
My water table is around 12 feet. Does it make any sense to buy this Hand Pump if it will only pump to appx. 19.5 feet?
I was told it would still bring up water from the 50 feet since it
would come up the pipes...???
Please help. I don't want to be taken for a "ride"...
THANK YOU!!

This cast iron hand pump will draw up to 19 feet deep. Since your water table is 12 feet, you could still use this pump as water will enter the pipe when inserted into the ground. The water that exits the pump at first will be the water from the top of the water table so you'll want to refrain from using that water. After a few pumps the water drawn will be higher quality.

This Northern Industrial water pump draws water from a well, with your purchase you receive the mounting base and everything seen above seen in the picture.

The pump provides suction to draw water from up to 19.5 feet underground and has a built in check valve.

You would need to provide a concrete pad to mount the pump to and provide all the plumbing below the base into the well.

If you are unsure on how to install this pump, please speak with your local plumbing specialist.
