Dig your own water well for free water and then build a unit that can pump water without electricity. It's not fast but it works! Or use a hand pump or an electric pump.

Also, you may need to contact local authorities to see what the regulations may be and also to locate and mark any underground services such as gas or electricity.

Also, get an idea how deep the water table is in your area. Your local municipality should be able to help you with this information). A shallow well (25 -30 feet or less) is much easier to drill and set up than a deep well.

A hand pump can also be used on a shallow well if you wish to save the cost of an electric water pump/pressure system and a shallow well can be easily drilled with a hand post auger you can rent or buy from places like Lowe's or Home Depot.

Depending on the water flow in a shallow well, you may want to go deeper if a shallow well doesn't meet your water volume needs. Be sure to dig your well uphill from any septic system or water runoff from livestock.

You can also catch and use rainwater and build a simple water purifier too!

A Simpler Lifestyle is Healthier Too

Less stress, lower monthly bills, healthier, tastier food and less money required to live better if you are willing to put in a little time and effort. When you've accomplished the level of self-sufficiency you want or are able to do, you can relax and just do a little maintenance on your no grid survival projects.

That's exactly what these no grid survival projects are aimed at - not just more self-sufficiency but living more of the kind of life many people dream about - a little further away from the rat race.

When I was a kid I pumped a lot of water this way before we drilled another well by hand and installed an electric water pump/pressure system.


Here's an example of a an old style well with a hand crank and a pail. Works good too and simple to fix if something breaks or wears out, since there aren't many moving parts and you can easily build and fix it yourself.

Some of our neighbors had this type of water source when I was a kid.

You can put a cover on your well instead and install an electric pump below the freezing point in the well if you have cold weather or install the pump in your house or basement if you want to.
