The Extra Deep Well Hand Pump is a conventional lever action handpump and is subject to Indian Standard IS:13287-1992. These pump has similar configurations as the INDIA Mark II, are exclusively used for extracting water from greater depths. These pumps are suitable for static water levels varying between 45 to 90metres where placement of cylinders can be between 50 to 85 metres. The inner dia of the borewell, where these pumps are installed, should not be less than 100mm. only the “down hole components” were changed. The most important improvement is the “cylinder”, which63.5mm I.D./380 mm long cast iron cylinder body fitted with brass liner having C.I. (Cast iron) caps threaded to hold 32mm NB pipe. 3 Nos. Nitrile pump bucket and 500mm plunger rod. This pump is not corrosion resistant and should not be used in areas with aggressive water (pH value < 6.5).
