Pitcher (hand) Pump Tune-Up

Introduction: Pitcher (hand) Pump Tune-Up

About: I am a teacher who enjoys environmentally responsible woodworking. Most evenings will find me in the shop working with my now 8 year old son Shay who is both my greatest helper and biggest fan.

How can you take and add a working hand pump to your garden or cabin without spending a huge amount of money?  Buy a cheap one of course!  In this instructable I show you step by step how to turn a very cheap water pump into a quality machine.  When you get right down to it the difference between a $40 pump and a $100 pump is the internal machining.  I will show you how to do it yourself.
