Testing the Solar Pump Jack.
The following videos demonstrate the performance of the WaterBuck Pump operating a 4″ pump cylinder with 80′ of head pressure. The drop pipe is 2″ metal pipe.

The following videos were made before the improvements were made to the pump system. Since then, we installed a new 4″ cylinder with 3/4″ fiberglass sucker rod, 2″ galvanized drop pipe and enhanced the mechanical advantage with a new design of the pump lever. (The first prototype yielded 6 GPM with 18 stroke.)
