A pitcher pump used with a drive well point can provide water without electricity from a shallow well of 25’ or less with a yield up to 3 GPM. It’s a good quality, yet inexpensive, alternative for getting water for the family during a short-term emergency.
Drive well points from Merrill Manufacturing can also be used with pump stands and even electric suction pumps for supplying indoor water pressure from a shallow well of 25’ or less. Please see this informative document by Wisconsin Department Of Natural Resources to learn more about installing and using sand point wells.
NOTE: Approximate water yield is 3 gallons per minute/per square inch of screen area.
