The Jooste hand pump is a revolutionary breakthrough, designed to be more easy to use than any other on the market. It is a relatively short stroke, spring loaded hand pump for rapid operation. With its adjustable leverage and equipped with a forcehead, it is designed to lift water as high as 10m above the surface from a depth of 50m deep boreholes.

The hand pump comprises a stainless steel top "cover", galvanised steel body, handle and baseplate. It is is suitable for household and rural water supply and can also be used for small-scale irrigation.

The JOOSTE hand pump can be used to pump water from depths of up to 60 metres, by either pulling the handle up or pushing it down, depending on how the pump is assembled.
