Why A Rhino Manual Water Hand Pump Is A Game Changer For Your Film Set

With convenient bottled water coolers in London indoor studios and film sets, all talent, staff, and crew can easily access pure, filtered water whenever they need it. But for outdoor film sets on location, that access to water can be limited. So what is a Rhino manual water hand pump, and how can it benefit everyone on set?

Essential access to water

It’s no secret that film sets will almost always have ‘film catering’ to provide a selection of hot and cold drinks, snacks, and food for actors and crew. This area will be where they go when there’s any scheduled downtime or an opportunity to grab a quick refreshment between takes. But all film catering will be somewhere to go to rather than being available wherever you are on set.

With water being so essential to our health and wellbeing, it’s vital that everyone on set has access to it – from camera operators to hair, make-up, and wardrobe. Not only does water help everyone stay refreshed and hydrated in a hot and demanding environment, especially in warm weather, but it also helps productivity and concentration levels, so it’s a win-win. But that catering area might be too far away to be convenient if you don't have the time to get to it.

Simplicity in design

This is where the convenience and ease of a Rhino manual water hand pump will come into its own. As a manual water pump that attaches conveniently to our 18.9 or 13-litre water bottles, it ensures an easy-to-use, portable water source that can go wherever it’s needed on any film set – even the tightest spots – thanks to its integrated carry handle.

What makes the Rhino manual water hand pump so ingenious? Simplicity in design and convenience are key. The integrated carry handle we’ve already mentioned means the water bottle can go anywhere – no plumbing or mains power required. But what else can it offer the largest of film sets?

Inbuilt air filter

Each Rhino hand pump has a replaceable, built-in air filter that ensures no dust, dirt, sand, or other airborne particles can enter the bottle each time it’s pumped for water. Perfect for any location setting.

Heavy-duty spring

A stainless chrome-nickel spring inside each hand pump makes it all happen. Sturdy, robust, and made to last, it won’t let you down. And it won't rust or affect the taste if it comes into contact with water.
