Hand Water Pumps

Hand Water Pumps for Playgrounds

Hand Water Pumps are a great way to let children use water for activities and experiments throughout an outdoor space and, learn about our natural environment and reduce our footprint on it.

Filling buckets and watering cans requires teamwork and brainstorming to pump the desired measures, and carrying their containers to sand pits for experiments or, watering garden beds can be fun and challenging.

Rainwell has developed an easy-to-install Hand Water Pump system, which enables connection to mains water, or harvested rainwater from a rain tank, via the Hand Water Pump Well.

Connecting a Hand Water Pump to a rain tank will teach children rainwater supply is not endless, so they will discover the connection between rainfall and rain tanks, which will help them understand water conservation.

Utilizing harvested rainwater regularly, creates capacity in the rain tank for capturing stormwater, which can protect our waterways from excessive runoff.
