Bison Pump for Pressurizing your Home Water Tank

Many people think that hand pumps are just for pumping water into a bucket. Not so with a Bison hand water Pump! The Bison Pump can be hooked up to your home water tank to pressurize it in the event of a power outage. This maintains water pressure running through your home faucets, so you can still shower, wash and flush! Generators are great, but what happens when you run out of gas? To be truly prepared for a long-term power outage or environmental emergency, invest in a Bison Pump.

These photos are from a happy customer. His message:

“My helper finally was able to have time to get the job done. Took us about 2 hours and fortunately he works out regularly. I had constructed the pulley system in case needed but he was able to hold up all 17 8-foot pipe-and-rods plus cylinder and pump, so we didn’t use the pulley.

Works great and not hard to pump.”


Submersible Pump down! Do YOU have a backup plan?

Yesterday I had the pleasure of talking with Dave from Minnesota. He lives in a rural area and depends on well water for his home water source. Dave, being a DIY-type of guy, is always trying to be prepared, especially for bad weather. He called Bison looking for a manual backup in case his submersible pump went out.
Turns out, Dave was just in time. We got this email from him this morning:
“Timing is everything – soon after I spoke to you, my submersible pump shut down. It may be an icing condition but it may be more significant than that too. I have a service person coming over in about an hour to make those assessments, but I sure am glad to have that Bison! I’ve been able to pressurize my water tank and keep water flowing through the faucets, toilets, showers etc. while waiting to get this submersible fixed. Thanks again….. -Dave”
Whether it’s the electricity, the weather, or the submersible pump itself, it’s always a smart idea to have a deep well pump for your emergency water access. Call Bison Pumps today to learn more: 1-800-339-2601. Bison pumps offer a variety of hand water pump, Browse products here
