  • Jetmatic Deep Well Pumps?

    Does anyone know anything about Jetmatic pumps?

    I work with a fellow from the Philipines who has been telling me about a hand-operated well pump that requires no electricity whatsoever, and it will bring up water from 500 ft/ 170m deep.

    I've been googling it for hours, and have found lots of references to the use of them, but only in the Philipines, and I can't find a source.

    Is the jetmatic a type of pump, or is it a brand? If it's a brand, what type of pump is it?

    If anyone knows about these pumps, I would certainly appreciate some info or websites on them. I am in the U.S.

    Sue, nice to see you as we draw down on another year...

    I have no idea, but I use pumps and install pumps, and sell pumps, and I would love to hear about this, too.

    Happy New Year (in one more day!).

      Hi, Sue! Happy New Year!

      I couldn't find jetmatic sold anywhere, but it is most likely a deep well hand water pump:

      I searched on hand water pump and got this brand:

      Here's another one:

      Here's some info in general about hand and foot pumps:

      at the end of the article there's more links.

      Is your well really deep? Maybe this will help.

        Thanks for the sites!

        All the wells around here are over 100 ft deep.

        This question came up because we recently had a massive windstorm that knocked out power to most of the state for up to a week. Every generator that was available was snatched up immediately. People with livestock were having to find an "island" with power, and fill barrels to get their stock watered.

          I have heard of a pump for bores or wells that are pneumatic. They use air from a compressor to force water from deep wells. The compressor uses an electric motor so it does not resolve your problem with electricity.

            Plumtrees post reminded me of the Bojon Windmill, that used air pressure to pump water... as I recall it reached fantasticly deep depths... It also turned at low wind speeds, and had an option to hook it up to generate electricity, too...
