Description: Patent for an improvement in water elevators to raise and lower a pair of buckets, meant to be simple, inexpensive, and more efficient than other designs. In particular, it is meant "to move the buckets in either direction without necessitating the operator's changing his position with relation to the apparatus" (lines 19-22).
