Hand pump with no instructions

Postby geochris35 » Sun Sep 09, 2012 2:33 pm

Hi Everyone,

Just bought my hand pump and realized it comes with no instructions. It is a zebra pump with two spots for tubes to attach to the bottom. I tested it in a bowl of water and realized that in order for it to work, both bottom tubes have to be in water. I am going to buy a 7 gallon tank to attach to the bottom of my tear and was trying to figure out how to attach the fittings. I think that I will have to attach both tubes coming from the faucet to the bottom of the tank, then I will need a vent tube and a fill tube attached toward the top of the tank. Finally I will have a drain valve on the bottom of the tank for winterizing. Does this sound right, here are some pics of the faucet.

And finally, the bottom view

Thanks for any insight you can give.

The small water inlet goes from the pump to a tank of water, and the large one goes to a city water fill.

Both inlets do not have to be "under water" Its just that if your testing it in a bowl of water the big one has to be covered before the little one is. Check this by running a tube from only the small one to a water source.

If all you need is a pump from a potable tank, just hook up the small one.
