 Pump Pressure Plate 


Pump Pressure Plate

 As part of its work in water purification, WaterStep encountered a need to move water from India Mark II pumps into elevated tanks for chlorination and distribution, something ordinary India Mark II pumps can not do.  In response to this need, WaterStep developed the Pump Pressure Plate.  This product pressurizes water coming out of INDIA MARK II pumps, such that it can reach heights of 30 ft. (9.1 m) or more.  Once installed, the Pump Pressure Plate eliminates the need to fill, carry, and lift buckets of water into tanks, which are often on raised platforms.  The Pump Pressure Plate can be installed on tan India Mark II pump in a short period of time using a few tools.

As packaged, the EXP-50 can be used to drill a 5-inch hole, 50 ft. (16 m) deep.  If greater depth is required, additional extensions rods (EXP-50) may be purchased directly from WaterStep, or may be manufactured in the field.  The EXP-50 comes with (1) EXP-01 Regular auger bit, (1) EXP-02 Sand auger bit, (1) EXP-03 Cracking bit, (1) EXP-04 T-Handle, (1) EXP-07 Multi-slip, (2) EXP-13 Carrying bag, (16) EXP-05 Extension rod, and (25) EXP-06 Lock pin.  Includes (2) extra Collars in case there is a need to make more extensions in the field.  Each of the two units are 9" x 9" x 40".  Each bag weights 42 lbs for a total of 84 lbs (19 kg).
