I want to install a rope pump on my farm to lift large volumes of water a few feet. I would like to purchase a kit, including special plastic washers that fit in US sized PVC pipe. Does anyone know who to contact to order a kit?

This technology is very common in central america, but haven't found anything for the US market.
