Re: TygerCub's Project

Found this on ebay:
http://cgi.ebay.com/2-Lever-Barrel-P...#ht_2630wt_685

$45 bucks ain't too bad ($25 for the pump & $20 to ship).

<edit>

OOH! And I REALLY like this one...

Keep in mind what its made out of. generally those are made for oil or fuel. water might not work that well with it and cause a big rust issue that will end up in your drinking water, sink, and holding tanks.

Smitty: Yes, I was my cast iron in the sink without soap.

Those pumps are a great idea. Lehman's has a variety of them as will most farm supply stores. Heck with an electric water pump, I'm going rustic!

Hmmm... I'll have to do a little more research. But I do like the idea of a hand pump in the kitchen area because it will force me to be more conservative with water usage. I still plan to use a pump for the shower, though. I will have a garden hose attachment to regulate water flow

Re: TygerCub's Project

That is something to consider- rust is bad... maybe i will go with plastic. Or find a stainless unit. Not to get all 2012 but I am thinking of sustainability, and durability. There is a simple equation to tell you if a machine will last in an application: Usage + moving parts= time to failure
Pretty much this holds true no matter what you are doing. I am thinking of the long haul, and not having to replace parts or find them. I went with hand operated toilet, simple 12v led lighting, and plan on a gravity feed shower. In addition to solar power and maybe a wind turbine, I want to have the ability to be self suffecient for a long time.

Re: TygerCub's Project

Thanks, everyone, for the support! I appreciate everyone on this site and have learned a great deal from some really terrific people.

Unfortunately, BOB's for sale. I just posted it on the local (Norfolk, VA) Craig's List. If no one bites by the 19th, I'll either take him to the junk yard for scrap metal, or donate him to a local charity to use as they see fit. I hate to do it, but money's getting super tight and I just can't afford the storage, tax, license and insurance fees any more.

Friday the 12th is the first court date for the divorce. Hopefully, everything will be quick and "easy".

I'll keep you guys posted on BOB's final resting place.
