I totally agree with having a hand pump too! But I don’t have much money right now and a good bison hand pump starts at $500 so a water bucket is good low tech alternative. Living in the burbs on a 1/2 acre I also considered a bright shinny well pump sitting in my backyard may attract unwanted attention to my property. I try and keep the appearance of my property as low profile as possible. I will still attach a hand pump when I get the funds together and stealth-fully hide it in plain sight. Any how the well bucket is cheap, effective and mobile. It is a good backup to your backup hand pump plus you can make a couple for your neighbors so there is no need from them to even come onto your property.
Thank you for all of the helpful comments.
