More Features

Dispenses 20 to 35 Litres Per Minute (5 to 8 Gallons)

  • You will pump between 5 and 8 gallons per minute depending on the depth of the pump and speed of operation. Water is delivered on both the up and down stroke. An ergonomic pumping action using your legs is shown in the installation instructions. (Some say it is better exercise than going to the gym!).

Patented Pumping Action

  • The unique factor about this pump like all Ezi-action® hand pumps is that it is neither a piston nor a vacuum pump. It incorporates a unique pumping principle that does not have to overcome any friction in the pumping action.

Tested to 10 Million Cycles

  • During research a shallow well pump with this patented pumping principle was continuously run for 10 million pumping cycles. At the end of the test the pump was delivering the same amount of water per cycle as at the beginning, and when dis-assembled little or no wear could be detected.

Vertical Pumping

  • Set up requires vertical positioning through a minimum well opening of 60mm/ 2.5 inches.


Will it pump from a ground water tank?

If you have a lid on your tank that you can customise with a 57mm hole we can offer the Ezi-action® 1000/220 Pump with M55 Fitting (Non-Siphon hose optional) for emergency dispensing from your underground tank.

The Ezi-action® 1000/220 Pump will reach to 1185mm. 

Will it pump from a stream or river and push water up hill?

Ezi-action® Shallow Well Pumps are not suitable for pumping water out of a stream or river.

This is because the pump needs to be set in a vertical position. Also weeds and sediment can jam the pump.

Will it pump from a lake?

Ezi-action® Shallow Well Pumps are not suitable for pumping water out of a lake.

This is because the pump needs to be set in a vertical position. Also weeds and sediment can jam the pump.

What hand pump can I use for pumping from a lake, river, pond or stream?

A piston suction pump is better for hand pumping from lakes, rivers, ponds and streams.

Ezi-action® Drumpumps use a unique patented technology with flap valves. An Ezi-action® Hand Pump is not a piston pump and it is not a suction pump.
