Real Pumps for Playground Fun
When kids see a pump handle in a park, they are drawn to work the lever up and down, slowly drawing water. A little elbow grease earns them a gush of water fun. “This is an actual pump, not a faucet,” said Tony Davis, president of Cadron Creek Play (Booth #E7020). “Kids are pumping water from a tank that gets refilled from a pressurized water line, like city water. The tank has a float valve in it, refilling the tank to provide constant water flow.”
Davis said Cadron Creek pumps have been bought for use in city parks, Montessori Schools, and education and play parks.
The pumps are designed to be used with Cadron Creek’s Water Fall Table with Playground Pump System, as well as the Dog Park Water Pump System. Garden designers and landscape architects also spec the pumps for use in vessels of their own design.
The stainless steel pumps and water tables are made in the U.S., entirely manufactured in Conway, Arkansas. “We weld and polish everything ourselves,” said Davis.
