Why Choose a Stainless Steel Hand Pump Over Cast Iron

With a Bison Pump Shallow Well Hand Pump, you get so much more from our shallow well hand pump compared to the traditional cast iron or plastic pitcher pumps:

  • A stainless steel body with acetal polymer components to resist rust and rot
  • Self-priming
  • No leathers, therefore no routine maintenance. Parts and leathers for cast iron are becoming less available
  • Sealed design to eliminate contaminants
  • Multi-position handle
  • Threaded spout to accommodate pipe or hose connections
  • Can pump into pressure to fill home’s storage tanks
  • Plumb into home’s system for emergency use
  • Available with a quick disconnect mount to remove in the wintertime but leave well covered
  • One-piece pump can be winterized with anti-freeze for storage in camps/cottages
  • A Bison Shallow Well Hand Pump comes with a lifetime warranty against manufacturer’s defects

A Bison Shallow Well Hand Pump is being used not only on a well, but in basements connected to the submersible plumbing, on cisterns, for use with rainwater collection, and now on our Playground Pump Kit.
