Barrel pumps for your garden

Water barrels are a great way to store water and use it later for your household. Unfortunately, barrels do not have water pressure - they are free-standing, which is why many people use watering cans or buckets to collect rainwater. If you don't want to carry heavy cans or buckets, it's better to use a barrel pump to pump water from it. Let's take a look at three options that can be used to save you time and effort.

The external barrel pump does not need to be placed directly in the water container, it is able to pump up to 6 liters per minute. It's a simple and easy way to transfer water from your barrel. This way you can water your plants in the garden in an instant without any tap water additional costs. Its low-weight and can be used for more places where water is collected.

Barrel battery pumps are another alternative that you can use in your garden. Although they are not as powerful as the above-mentioned electric pumps, you can drain a 300-liter barrel in about an hour. These pumps were originally designed to pump water from boats so that they do not sink, so it will certainly not be a problem to irrigate your lawn. Another useful feature is that you can place them directly in the barrel and with the help of 3 batteries pump for up to 5 hours.

Don't have the time or money to use battery or electric pumps? Then the last alternative is to draw manually. Don't be fooled, these pumps are capable of pumping up to 200 liters per hour - depending on your strength. Just take it, 200 liters per hour, almost the whole barrel, without consuming a single watt of electricity or having to spend on batteries. When considering these things, a hand-held barrel pump is certainly an alternative that you might consider.

As you can see, there are several variants and none of them is the "better" one. However, it is clear that if you decide to irrigate your garden with rainwater, the pumps can make your work a lot easier.
