Does anyone out there have any first hand experience with bicycle powered well pumps? Or know anyone who has? Please email me directly at yellowsunfarm@hotmail.com - I would really appreciate it!

We have a DC / solar powered Simple Pump (which I do not recommend under any circumstances) which has given us a whole lot of trouble. Now the motor is leaking oil and we are wanting to power the thing ourselves. I have seen a couple videos i YouTube, but we would really like to talk to someone who knows something about it. Our static water is at about 70 feet and flows at 2 gallons a minute - we also pump it up to a cistern located about 50 feet up a hill in elevation.

I could not disagree more - how he could think that any animal has no place in permaculture is beyond me - especially ones that have been with humans for as long as cats have been. We have 3 outdoor cats - with whose arrival all of the mouse shit all over our house disappeared, the vole holes in the garden disappeared, and the poisonous snakes basking in our yard disappeared. Instead, was well-fed, well-loved, reiki-master cats who pump out unconditional love and affection to us and are thankful for their little hunk of raw meat we give them each day to keep them on our homestead. Cats are ESSENTIAL to a permaculture scene!!!
