The old hand cranck pump wasn’t complete, so I decided to just clean it and hang it in our garden just for fun.
I like seeing the old handmade wooden piston, which still had the original non-return valve leather on it. The leather that belongs to the seal around the piston had disappeared.
I painted everything with clear varnish and hope to enjoy it for a long time just by looking at it …
Who knows, maybe birds will nest in it as often happened in the past at the old water pump of the Boy Scout group in Vorden.
One thought on “The old water pump has become a museum piece.”
