I was wondering if it is possible to rig our electric pump so that during a power outage we can pump it by hand to fill the pressure tank. I read this link here http://www.popularmechanics.com/home/improvement/electrical-plumbing/1275136 and as far as I can tell, it is a single drop jet pump system. Here are some pictures of the pump and pressure tank: Is it possible to attach some kind of crank or lever to draw up water by hand? Or would we need to attach a completely separate hand pump? If so, where would we hook it up? Can we fill the pressure tank by hand? Or would we need some way to re-route the water during a power outage and just have the water come straight out of the hand pump? I'm tired of losing water during power outages. Nova Scotia Power is TERRIBLE (and we pay the 2nd highest prices in Canada for power), and so the power goes out quite frequently. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
