It's better to have an Emergency Well Pump and not need it...than to need water, and not have it!
Water is essential for life. Are you prepared? Three days without water and humans begin to suffer tremendously. While water is the most abundant resource on earth, it isn't always the most available. An interruption in the supply of potable water can come without warning from loss of pumping power at your well, or within the water system that supplies city or rural water to your family. A power failure could be the result of grid problems, a terror attack, contamination, floods, storms, or fuel interruptions.Other possibilities include broken water mains, draught pump failure, not paying your bills (sorry, just kidding). There are ongoing terror threats to water and food supplies and many other very real possibilities. It is very important that you be prepared. The cost of FloJak is too low to simply hope for the best.
Some interruptions are short term. Two or three days. It isn't too difficult to store enough water to get by for short periods. In extreme emergencies, one gallon per person, per day is adequate to survive. Other interruptions could last much longer. But even a few hours of water loss will empty the store shelves of bottled water. People who live in more urban areas of the country are unable to rely on an emergency backup system, without access to one of the millions of active or inactive wells that dot the countryside. And without a way to reach the clean water below, filtered naturally by the earth itself, a cool drink may as well be a 1,000 miles away.
Preparation requires planning. Where will your water come from? Will you need to filter it? Can you store it...or carry it? You may be fortunate enough to have an active well...or even an old one on or near your property. If not, you probably have a neighbor or a relative with a well you didn't even know about. It's important to keep your eyes open. If you haven't yet located a couple of accessable wells, keep looking. There are 15 million wells in the United States...2000 new ones every day. There are 3.5 million square miles of land (including bodies of water) in this country. Mathmatically, that means there are an average of 4.3 wells per square mile.
You CAN locate a well, and get permission to use it. It's a part of the responsibility of preparing for your family.
Order your FloJak pump as soon as possible. Don't wait until it's too late. It's not worth the risk. For a small investment you can buy a kit with 50 feet of extra pipe...or better yet, invest in the TP-100. Its a total pak and has everything you need except PVC cement to be fully prepared. The TP-100 will afford the option for choosing a deeper well if you need to. FloJak™ is small and light, and extremely durable. It is easy to transport, even in a small car, and quick to assemble. FloJak could be the most important addition to your collection of "just-in-case" stuff. Please, don't delay.
