This is a great DIY project and would make a great addition to anyone’s preps.

If you are still confused as to what this does, it is really quite simple and clever. It is a water pump that needs no energy input other than water flowing from a higher point to a lower point.

If SHTF and the power goes this will still work and pump water with no electricity.
