Hand Operated Water Pumps
Managed By: Icon Here old city waterpump's
Description:
To Waymark those old, beautiful hand operated water pumps found in market squares, old streets, and other historical sites.
Expanded Description:
An old hand operated water pump was used to supply water prior to the widespread use of windmill pumps, electric pumps and city water systems. Usually an old pump was made from cast iron, wood or tin.

Typically an old pump was found in the market square, small street in the old part of town and often now at historical sites. Pumps were very important to people up through the 19th century as houses seldom had indoor plumbing with running water. During that time you would often find hand operated pumps throughout towns and on farms. People would pump the water into buckets and carry them to their houses to use in cooking and cleaning. Sometimes you will still find an old stone basin near the pump where, in some towns, once a week women came to do the laundry. And, unfortunately, sometimes these old pumps also spread sickness, such as cholera, in parts of the city. It is these relics from the past we seek to Waymark.

Water Rams need a category of their own.
Artesian Wells have a category already.

Instructions for Posting a Hand Operated Water Pumps Waymark:
This category seeks to Waymark those hand operated water pumps that were once working, and are no longer in day to day use. An old pump was probably made from cast iron, wood or tin, was sited in a public place and may have a story. The pump will probably be over one hundred years old. An old hand pump that is still working but is no longer needed for its original purpose, please submit for review to be looked at on a case by case basis. A pump no longer in its original position will also be considered.

Ask yourself before posting.
Is this pump no longer working?
Does it look old? (Please state if it is a modern replica.)
Is it publicly accessible?
(The pump needs to be on public view, and not in someone else's private garden.)
Is it purely decorative?
Did it dispense water?
Does it still have a handle (or equivalent) for pumping?
Handle may have been removed. See Photograph requirements.

Now submit your find. Just submitting co-ordinates and photographs is not enough. Some text describing the pump and/or its history is also needed. Minimalist postings with poor quality pictures and inaccurate co-ordinates will be sent back for improvement.

If you are posting and English is your second language, please attempt to post an English translation of your native text. Thank you.

Co-ordinates.
Should be taken as close as possible with a hand held GPSr. Currently mobile 'phone and cameras with GPSrs are not recommended for reliable co-ordinates. If the pump is in a museum building, please use main door co-ordinates and describe in the box provided how to get from the main door to the pump. If it is determined that co-ordinates have been taken at a distance with camera or mobile 'phone, the waymark, if already approved, may be subject to removal by the group officers.

Photographs.
At least two good quality photographs taken with a camera, not a fuzzy mobile 'phone. Primary picture of the pump including the handle. If the handle has been removed, a third photograph of there once being a handle is needed. For example the fulcrum or slot where the handle was located.
A picture of the handle will help your posting.
Secondary picture of general area. Further photographs to enhance the posting, i.e. stone trough, date stone, history plaque.

Narrative.
If you can find out any history about this pump or the water system that replaced this pump, or was this pump a "Typhoid Mary", did it kill rather than give life, please add it here. If there was no handle, how did it pump by hand? Credit the sources from which you obtained or copied the text.

References.
Among places to find the location of old hand operated water pumps will be websites such as: Flickr.com and Geograph.org.uk The replacement water system may be in a local history book or website. If you can, please list other references to your posting.

Most variables are optional and are not troublesome.

Exclusions
A pump on private land. A stainless steel pump or other modern looking pumps. A pump that did not move water. A standpipe or tap with water under pressure. e.g. WM9ZWR

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
