Clean water where ever you need it.

    The pump that delivers clean water fast and easily

    With our large groups, we carry water in 55 gallon drums for our camping trips. And this is the pump that makes it easy to get the water. It is very easy to pump. It pumps a big flow on both the up and down strokes. And it never wears out, because it has no valves, vanes, impellers, seals, nor any of the other stuff that can wear out, and that can add residue to your water.

    This drum pump also serves as our emergency preparedness pump. After each camping trip, we refill the drums with fresh water, and keep them and the pump ready to supply our home with water should our normal supply get cut off or become polluted.
    Many years back, we decided that we wanted to avoid the crowded, but developed campgrounds. We decided that if we carried our own water supply, we could camp pretty much anywhere. Since our group is pretty big, we took a 55 gallon drum of water and one of those cheap drum siphon pumps, from our emergency preparedness supply. (I think they sell those pumps believing no one will ever really use them.) During our first trip, after wearing our arms out trying to pump out water, the cheap pump failed. What a pain trying to tip the drum to pour out the water. After the trip, I began a search. There are a lot of pumps, but I didn't like those with metal parts and valves that would oxidize and taint the water. And I certainly wasn't going to depend on another cheap plastic pump. Finally, I found the ideal pump - in New Zealand. They had no dealers in the USA back then - and I had to talk to the owner to get them to send me one to try out. (They wanted me to buy a case full.) If I had known how great this water pump would turn out to be, I would have bought the case then. It is now over 12 years later, and that very first pump is still pumping water easily from our 55 gallon drums. (Our group is so big now that we carry two 55 gallon drums.) Not only is this pump made of all heavy-duty plastic, it has no parts that wear out, no gaskets or seals or impellers or valves to replace. It is very easy to pump a big stream of water from the drums, and it still works as well today as it did 12 years ago.

    Ezi-Action Drum Pump for 55 and 30 gallon drums. This is the best pump in the world for easily pumping water. It is made of food grade plastic.

    It can also be used for liquid foods, chlorine-based cleaning fluids, chemicals, acids, etc. It is not suitable for gasoline, petroleum or harsh solvents.

    We seem to sell more of these pumps to people for emergency preparedness than we do for camping.

    Buy two pumps together and save money. If you have a friend who would also like a pump, and you allow us to combine two pumps into the same box, going to the same address, you both can save money.

    If you need an additional drum pump adapter, you can order this spare part here. These basically never wear out, so there is no need to order a spare unless you have a specific use for it.


    This pump is a high-volume, low-pressure, food-safe, low-effort, dual action unit, that is built to last.

    • Pump is 45.5" tall
    • Nozzle is 6.5" long

    • Tube below pump head is 37.5" long
    • Tube is 1.7" in diameter

    This pump is ideally suited to pump water, because it will keep the water clean. It does not introduce impurities from parts wear.

    This pump is also suitable for pumping acids, alkaline, and chlorine based cleaning chemicals. It can be used to pump liquid foods, oils and lubricants and many crop chemicals that contain mild solvents.

    The spout part of the nozzle features a lip designed to help retain a plastic tube. A 3/4" ID soft plastic tube can be forced onto the faucet for a tight leakproof fit.

    The pump will lift water above its own height through the tube, to fill campers or other reservoirs.

    How to install:
    Each pump comes with an adapter that fits into the holes on the top of the drum. Most USA drums have two holes, one with fine threads and one with coarse threads.

    Our standard adaptor has both coarse and fine threads and will fit either hole.

    Remove the screw-on cap and slide it on the shaft (tube) of the pump. Screw the adapter into the drum. Lower the pump shaft into the adapter hole, and then screw on the cap that you slid on the shaft.

    For other types of barrels, we have many other sizes of adaptors. The most common is when the barrel has an outside threaded lip that sticks up out of the barrel. For this we have a cap adapter.

    Let us know if you have other kinds of drums, and we will help you get the correct adapter. Sending us a photo usually helps.
