vertical wind vane 5 feet tall

The vertical wind vane is currently being finished.  The first  install is going fine.

It is six feet in diameter and five feet tall.  After we test the vane for output power the vane will probably be resized to smaller dimensions.  I am pretty sure it will be five feet wide and three and a half feet tall.  I am looking for two horsepower in a pretty stiff wind.  I will place all of the test data on this site.  For those who wish a large vane I will offer the large version as well.

It is estimated that the price of the large wind vane will be around $6500 and the price of the smaller on will be $4500.  Shipping will not be cheap and it is not included in the price.  If you are interested in a wind vane give us a call.

Air powered pump

Well Pump

Our main product is an air powered well pump made to operate down to 200 feet.  Additional depth is possible by adding inline transfer pumps.  This is done so the system will work with less than 100 PSI of air pressure.

Well pump general description - The pump is operated by air and will pump in 1/3 gallon increments until the well runs dry or the air is shut off.   The pump can be completely rebuilt with a few parts in a short time.  For more information on the pump design click here.

The well pump comes with an air controller.

The price of the air pump and controller is:

inline air pump

Inline transfer pump

Wells deeper than 200 feet will require a transfer pump every 200 feet.  Water from the bottom pump will push water into the transfer pump.  That water will be pushed to the surface or another transfer pump.  In order to keep the pump inexpensive and reliable the air pressure should not exceed 100 PSI.  The parts are rated at a higher working pressure but to supply a safety margin and to use a lower pressure compressor the design of the system was centered around 100 PSI For more information on the inline transfer pump click here.

The  inline transfer pump does not require its own controller.

The price of the Transfer pump is:

air powered control unit

Air Controller

The control valves to switch between pressure and exhaust are located above ground.  For a 100 ft well the pressure time is approximately 6 seconds and the exhaust cycle is 5 seconds.  These are factory set but can be adjusted.  The procedure for adjusting the timing is found in the installation page.  The air controller can be purchased separately.  For more information on the controller click here.

The Controller comes with the standard pump system.  This controller would be for a backup.  The price is:



Several years ago I came to realize that many people who think they are prepared for the grid going down or an EMP pulse only really have a temporary water solution.  I saw a need for an inexpensive well pump that operated on a power source immune from the effects of a solar flare or EMP pulse.  I knew that air pressure could be stored easily and made easily by rotary wind vanes or a solar panel and an electric compressor.  This site and products are the water solution I came up with.  It may not be perfect but it will keep you alive.  All of the parts are made of materials which do not make the water unsafe to drink.  Stainless steel, PVC,  and brass make up the main parts.

Everyone should have an emergency water backup plan.  A few gallons of water set aside is great but when it runs out you and everyone else will be searching for clean water.  Open water systems will quickly become contaminated.

In my study of people who prepare for disaster I came across what is known as preppers.  People who try and set aside food or equipment which in a disaster will help them or their neighbors.  We all rely on our technology and if it were to go away  we would lose our ability to survive.  Either exposure, lack of water or food will cause us to wander about with millions of others seeking the necessities of life.

In order to be totally prepared we need to have a plan which supplies shelter, food, and water.  In a major disaster we need to be completely self sufficient with a continuous supply of energy, food, and water.  This is not easy to do.  To attempt to do this on your own will probably not work.  A group of people with the required skills and material will be needed for long term survival.  This site is dedicated to one part of a survival plan.  I will talk about my plans and my systems but I make no guarantee that what I do will work in all environments.  It is best that each of you form your own plans and test all of the systems.  An emergency is not the time to dust off a pile of stuff in the garage to see if it will help you survive.

Please send me any suggestions on survival systems and I will post the ones I think make sense.

This site deals with well pumps, emergency water systems, Preppers, air pump, safe water, EMP issues, Nuclear bomb survival, clean water, Solar flare issues, solar flare 1859, solar flare 1989 Canada, fires caused by electric fields, EMP pulses, emergency survival, Air pressure, inexpensive well pump, cheap well pump, small budget, well case, well cap, solar panals, wind energy, turbine blades, fan blades, electric generation, and many more things.

We at water72 are dedicated to supplying all of the key components so you can safely obtain water in an off grid environment.  The vertical wind vane and solar panel chargers are part of those solutions.  Low tech battery charging controllers are also part of the system we will offer. The systems are made to use renewable sources.  So you could call then green energy systems.  Right now we are projecting that our vertical wind vane will output two horsepower in a stiff wind.  Here in the White Mountains of Arizona a stiff wind is easy to come across.
