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 ergonomical pumping action using the legs is shown in the installation instructions. (Some say it is better exercise than going to the gym).
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.
Patented pumping action
The unique factor about this pump 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.
