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.

“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.
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.

A water well system has numerous components, many of which are out of sight underground. This video explains the basics of a professional water well inspection, the importance of well inspections to protecting health and well system operation, and the signs that a well inspection may be needed.
Are you looking to buy land in Maine to build an off grid, strategic location property? Maine has some great properties for sale that will fit your needs. There are a lot of criteria to consider but a few basics hit the top of the list. Today, let’s just look at the basic need of drinking water.
After listening to the news about the California water shortage, I realize how blessed we are in Maine. Being born and raised here, I do not remember a time we ever had to ration water. The quality of drinking water in Maine is excellent. Once in a while you may run into some higher mineral contents but nothing a filtration system can’t fix.
Last month Jerelyn and I enjoyed a four-day vacation in Maine—a combined trip to visit family, explore Acadia National Park, and go to the Common Ground Fair—my first visit there in two or three decades!
The highlight of the Common Ground fair for me was coming across a little company,Bison Pumps, based up near Fort Kent, Maine (in WAY northern Maine) that makes really slick hand pumps. These pumps are sort-of like the ones our grandparents used, but they’re built with much greater precision and work much better.
