Rope Pump‎ > ‎


What is it?

The rope is what pulls the pistons up through the pipe bringing water with it.

It is very important to tension the rope correctly. To check the rope is the correct tension, follow the following steps:
  1. Take the rope between thumb and forefinger
  2. Turn your hand
  • If it is too tight, it will cut the guide and rope and be too hard to turn
  • If a quarter turn can be completed comfortably, the rope tension is ok
  • If it is too loose, the rope will slip or come off the wheel
