Works great installed alongside existing electric pumps for emergency backup use (minimum 6" ID casing required). Lightweight design for easy installation. It's rustproof, so it may actually outlast heavy, rusting cast iron pumps. Resistant to salt water and most chemicals.
Lifts water up to 50 feet, but because handle is only 11" long, you may need to use a 36" length of 2" pipe as an extension. 2" diameter cylinder of corrosion-resistant PVC Schedule 80 pipe and pumps up to 10 gpm. Rust-proof 1-7/8" brass plunger has 3 cups to ensure long life. Made in the USA.
To complete your installation, you just need to add the pump rod and drop pipe. Use "Schedule 80" ½" diameter PVC pipe as the pump rod. Use 2" Schedule 40 PVC as the drop pipe (Schedule 80 couplings required). You can obtain the 1/2" and 2" PVC pipe you need inexpensively from most hardwares or building supply outlets.
Installation is fast and easy. Glue together sections of 2" drop pipe as you install. Install enough drop pipe to put the bottom end of the pipe 2-3 feet underwater. Slide brass plunger into drop pipe and attach the first section of 1/2" PVC. Then glue to enough additional sections of 1/2" pipe to equal the length of 2" pipe already installed.
