    Default Well Hand Pump

    Anyone here in the MatSu Valley know a good place to buy a well hand pump. I've got a static water line of about 10-15 feet depending on the time of year. Any and all info would be appreciated.

    Ah, just last month I got an email from Rep. Neuman. He was announcing some sort of meeting covering getting water with no electricity. No other info in the attachment either but I was able to expand the attached photo and found a pic of ABC Well truck in it. You might give them a call, they are located up north of Wasilla towards Big Lake. And yup, I will be calling them as well

    Default Emergency Well Hand Pump

    A great emergency well pumping system is the EPS found at www.sdusa.net. The system is manufactured in the USA (Idaho) and works within existing wells that have 4" or larger casings and a static water level of 100 feet or less.

    One of the company owners lived just outside Wasilla for years and is familiar with the area. He can be reached at ivans@sdusa.net or by phoning Ivan Smith at 208-680-0175.

    I have installed the permanent system within my existing well and it works great!

    Guess I'll check out AIH. I don't plan on spending a lot of money, with the static water line so shallow. Just looking for a simple hand pump that I can setup on the well head, and piping to get down 20-25 feet. Thanks for all the replies so far.
