CIVIL DEFENSE WATER PUMP - $250 (Santee)

condition: good
make / manufacturer: Aurora

JUST REDUCED FOR QUICK SALE :)
We bought to use with our property hand dug well in 2002.
Have not used it since our power circuit in that area is no longer active.
It was purchased as UNUSED (AS NEW) surplus never used in 2002.
I would guess it is circa 1950's. During the cold war bomb shelter era.
It operates on 110v. So a small generator would power it.
Our well was a hand dug well from the 1940's.
Depth originally about 20 feet but with accumulation of sand creeping through the deteriorated redwood walls, it was somewhat less.
We used it primarily to water our yard.
It has a massive amount of water pressure once pumping. Simple priming usually ( I say usually, because sometimes it doesn't) done each time.
Since the electric was disconnected to that location, we stopped using it.
That was about five years ago.
As a result, we cannot demonstrate it.
So we are selling it AS IS where is.
No big deal to disconnect and remove it.
And that's all about it. :)
Please include your ACTUAL email if you respond.

Pics taken today. Dust and cob webs no charge. Has always been in well shed covered.
Serious? I will call you.
No phone, no reply.
