Rainmakers. Treadle pumps are a perfect solution for farmers who lack access to mechanical means of watering their thirsty crops. As a bonus, with their hands free, those operating the pump can share a morale-boosting “thumbs-up” with a partner whenever the need arises.
Saves labor for “market gardeners” and entrepreneurs. No more long journeys to and from water wells, one bucket at a time– treadle pumps tap a deeper, cleaner water source, and lead to healthier, more bountiful crops. Farmers who use treadle pumps report 100% or more increase in crop yield.
