Top mounted hand pump for rain barrel
Hi, I have a 55 gallon drum I am going to use for a rain barrel. It had two caps on top which I have removed. A 3 inch atrium drain cover fits over one and the downspout extension fits over that. I have ordered a hand pump (lever action) that will screw into the other opening. My plumbing experience is limited to stopping a toilet from running so I didn't want to drill a hole in the lower part of the drum, install a spigot, etc. Has anyone tried this? Any thoughts? I am going to install a second drum in another month or two and want to try this again, but am open to other suggestions.
