Great Well Bucket...
Sep 24, 2021
My father had an uncle born in 1886... He lived to be 94 and died when I was 23... There was never electricity or plumbing in their home... I remember the oil lamps.. wood cookstove and the long well bucket that brought up water for the house and animals... I still have it and the cast iron pulley wheel... I recently bought a retirement property with a beautiful view of the Rocky River Valley here in Tennessee... I am moving a 150 yr old log house there and will be living mostly off-grid... Not wanting to risk damage or loss of my family relic.. I purchased this Amash-made version and am very pleased with it... I had a well drilled and just used the bucket for the first time... The bucket worked perfectly and the water is cold and very good... Not sure why this is listed as not for daily use but that is what I will be doing... I will be building a windlass...
Works Great, gives us peace of mind

We bought this well bucket several years ago just in case we had an extended power outage. I'll admit we should have tried it sooner, it would have saved me a great deal of worry about how to get water without electricity. The tropical storm that came through here yesterday knocked out power and we had livestock that needed water. The well bucket worked great and my husband was amazed how easy it was to lift the bucket.
Piece of Mind

This thing is great! Well made, easy to work and gives a lot of piece of mind for how to get water from our deep well. We're not doomsday preppers, but we do value preparedness. This is an important part of our tool kit. Thanks Lehmans!

We have an all electric home and have always been concerned about how we would get water if the electricity would go off for an extended period. This well bucket is a simple and inexpensive solution. It is very well made and will last a lifetime. It is just cheap insurance for something as important as having a source of water.
Quality products at reasonable prices

I can always depend on Lehman's to send me a quality product that lasts and that I can afford on social security. It's important to me not to have to replace items every year because they fell apart.
What was needed

My elderly father needed this to replace a leaking water bucket. It works perfectly and he is happy. I searched on the web and all I could find like this one was "vintage" ones aka "old" that were either rusted or leaking like my fathers was. And the cost with shipping was very close for what I was able to purchase this one for. Shipping was quick and item arrived in perfect condition. Thanks!

This is a peace-of-mind product -- one you love to possess but hope never to need. If someday I find my power fails for an extended period, I'll be glad to have this tool to retrieve water from my well. It is well made of heavy-gauge material.

Hey, this well bucket works great. I was reluctant at first to buy, as I feared shipping damage, but it arrived without a scratch. This is for a well pump failure backup. My grandma had one like this and it was the only way she got water from just after WWII to the 1970's.

Have a property that I visit on weekends. It had a well, but the pump and plumbing were shot. Rather then spend thousands of dollars to get a weekend's worth of drinking water, I got this. Works wonderfully. It is also nice to know that in the event the power goes out, we'll never know the difference. An excellent survival tool.

My wife and I purchased this well bucket recently, and we're just crazy about it! We have a cabin that we visit a few times a year, and it works perfectly for us. We highly recommend it!

Thanks to Lehman's for supplying hard to find items like this!
