Pump-n-Play Junior


Cadron Creek Play’s Pump-n-Play Junior Playground Pump System is an exciting water play feature for your park or playground. The manually operated stainless steel pump simulates the action of a traditional water hand pump. However, no well is needed as it is connected to a pressurized water line (like city water) which automatically refills the above-ground tank as the children hand-pump the water out of the tank. With a unique draw like the Pump-n-Play Junior Playground Pump, families will visit the playscape again and again…and tell their friends!

The Pump-n-Play Junior Playground Pump System includes the highest quality playground pump on the market. Made of Stainless Steel, the pump and tank are hand-polished and manufactured 100% in the USA. With sturdy welds and a 3-year warranty, they have minimal maintenance requirements.

The “Junior” version of the Pump-n-Play Playground Pump System is designed for preschool-aged kids. The above-ground stainless steel tank is shorter, allowing for younger kiddos to easily reach the pump handle. It features a 11 3/4 inch long spout, allowing the water to fall in a designated area. This pump is easy to install and maintain. It has an elegant design but is built for heavy use by little hands. It can also be customized to meet the needs of your project. For example, you can add a Spout & Shout to the nozzle, which causes the water to spray out of the spout as you pump!

The manual hand pump mounted on the enclosed stainless-steel tank presents children with the opportunity to play AND learn. Water play is a key element to sensory play and stimulates young minds in a variety of STEM areas. By pumping the water and playing in it together, they are exploring bubbles, buoyancy, teamwork and cooperation… so many valuable lessons you won’t get from a screen!


  • How does a hand pump work?
  • How much force is required to pump the water?
  • Where does the water come from… and where does it go?

The stainless-steel water play pump system invites a broader discussion about water as a resource, conservation and environmental science!

At Cadron Creek Play, it is our mission to get kids off the screens and into the outdoors. Children are naturally drawn to water. Whether they are playing in a bathroom sink or suddenly sprint to the nearest water fountain, kids seek out water! The Playground Pump encourages that curiosity as it enhances other skills like cooperation, understanding buoyancy, and feeling the weight of water and the amount of force required to lift it. The Pump-n-Play gives children a hands-on learning opportunity that instills a love for exploring with your senses. Feeling the water, getting wet, muddy… this is what childhood is about. THIS is how we learn about the world around us. We hope you’ll join us as we encourage kids to get outside and experience the great outdoors.

Cadron Creek’s Pump-n-Play Junior Playground Pump System is designed for “Little Kids” under the age of 5 years old. While the system may be used for older children, the combined height of the pump and tank (38 5/16 inches) is intended for shorter kids. For big kids, check out the original Pump-n-Play.



Water from a pressurized water line (i.e. city water) fills the tank and automatically shuts off at the fill line. Kids then hand-pump the water out of the tank. The water refills as it’s pumped out.
