Chemical Jug Fitted With Hand Pump
Abram R. Hoover, Fortuna, Mo.: “Instead of buying a new pump to remove the liquid from 15-gal. plastic barrels, I bought a 1-gal. chemical jug fitted with a hand pump and set it on top of the barrel. I drilled a 7/16-in. dia. hole through the side of the jug and also drilled a matching hole in the barrel’s small bung. Then I got a 5-ft. length of 7/16-in. clear plastic tubing and pushed one end down into the barrel’s small hole until it reached the bottom. I inserted the other end of the tube into the hole in the jug. The last step was to connect that end of the tubing to the hand pump. Works great.”
