The RUST Water Pump is a deployable pump system used for exclusively transporting fresh or saltwater from its natural source to a storage facility or dispensary.
While using a Wire Tool or Hose Tool to check available ports, players will find the standard Water Out and Power In options. It requires 5 electrical power to function and is usually used in conjunction with a Powered Water Purifier (if deployed in saltwater) for maximum efficiency.
When powered, Salt Water or Water is extracted and moved to the designated Water Out location. There are minimum depths within the water source that a water pump must be placed in order to function appropriately.
Water Pumps are found in an assortment of mid-to-high tier crates, as well as dropped from many scientist types. RUST players may purchase them directly from Outpost at a cost of 200 Scrap, learn them directly via research table, or through a scrap investment into the Tier 2 Workbench tech tree.
