Tadpole Playground Pump System


The Cadron Creek Play Playground Pumps provide an ideal sensory play experience for developing sponge-like minds. Our pumps simulate the action of a traditional water hand pump. However, no well is needed because it can connect to multiple types of water sources. Kids will have puddles of fun with the Tadpole Playground Pump!

Cadron Creek Play Playground Pumps are the highest quality playground pumps on the market. Made of Stainless Steel, the pump is hand-polished and manufactured 100% in the USA. With sturdy welds and a 3-year warranty, it has minimal maintenance requirements.

The Tadpole Playground Pump is our smallest water play pump and is designed for children 3 years of age and younger. The hand pump can be mounted to a flat surface like a table or Cadron Creek Play’s Stainless Steel Pump Stand that comes with a mounting plate, allowing for a versatile design. The stainless-steel hand pump connects to a durable plastic tank that is connected to a pressurized water line. As the water is pumped out of the tank, it automatically refills, simulating the feel of a pumping water from a well. It features an 8 3/8 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.



Water from the pressurized water line fills the plastic tank and automatically shuts off at the fill line. The tank is connected to the pump by a reinforced flexible hose. The children then hand-pump the water out of the tank. The water refills as it’s pumped out. The tank can be buried, placed below a deck/table, or even camouflaged to match the playscape’s theme. Just be sure to install it in a place where it is out of the sun and can be easily reached for ventilation and maintenance.
