In a pinch this would definitely save your life by giving you access to fresh water, but I’m with MB on this one. If you really believe in Keep It Simple Stupid and have a well already, put a backup hand pump on it.

Personally, I’d prefer a hand pump which could be sprayed down with bleach than having my ebola infected neighbor handling his own well bucket and sticking it down into my clean water supply.
