WOW, so much info & great ideas!

I was wondering what hand pump you have... we'd like a back-up JIC for our well run by electric. I am trying to win DH over to the alternative side... it's the money/cost involved that holds everything back... but I'd really like a hand pump sooner than later... last summer when it was well over a 100 degrees & I was very pregnant, we had no power for 2 days... felt like forever... we also had NO water... & it really made me want the hand pump even more.
