    Yard sale find. Help identifying maker.

    Hello, I found this at a yard sale and would like any info about the maker. Only mark is in the brass fitting. Union manufacturing Co. New Britain, CT. I can't seem to find any info about manufacturing well pumps. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Second thought, It does look like a hand pump.

    I haven't figured out what I think it is yet.

    Over 40 years in the mechanical construction industry, 67 projects in 29 states. What I can add is that fire protection systems were specifically painted red for quick identification.

    I see writing on the tapered part? No idea either but probably fire fighting gear, pretty fancy pump handle though. Maybe a portable fire water tank used in a factory?
