The Magic of a Drum Pump

There is a magical quality to a drum pump that many people are not entirely aware of. This magical quality is not so easy to describe, however. But it shall be the aim of this blog post to describe this magical quality even though it is not easily describable. It is not easy to describe because magic is under most circumstances in an intangible matter and intangible matters are not as easy to describe as solid, concrete objects. So what then is this magical quality that the drum pump possesses? How might someone describe it so that the average person can understand.


A tote pump is not so different than a drum pump in this regard. That is, they both have magical qualities which are not easy to describe because they are intangible. Despite the fact that these magical qualities are intangible, as author of this blog post, I am obligated to a certain extent to attempt to describe the magical and intangible quality of the drum pump and the tote pump. Sometimes magical qualities are not intangible and are therefore easier to describe. Unfortunately this is not one of those times and thus the task at hand remains a difficult one to accomplish.

So I ask you again (gentle reader), what is this magical quality that the drum pump (or tote pump if you will) happens to possess and how might I best describe it if it is so intangible a quality as to be difficult to describe? These are no easy questions to answer for the very same reason that it is difficult to describe the magical qualities inherent in the drum pump and the tote pump. That very same reason is that the magical qualities in question are intangible and hard to describe.
