A treadle pump is a piston style pump that utilizes a treadle to create an oscillating motion, which in turn pumps water. Designed to be low profile and user friendly, this pump is capable of pumping water from about 10 meters deep. Primarily this style of pump is used for irrigation and pumping water horizontally instead of vertically.
