Up here in North Queensland in the cane farming area ‘Burdekin ‘ there is some very large pumps and vacuum pumps are used to bring the water from the water table up to the pump
Somewhere in my travels I saw a vacuum pump sucking in coke cans in about 2 seconds and when sucked the vacuum was released and the can fell out and another dropped in. The poor chap could not kept the supply of cans up as there was people standing around all day wanting to see it work

The above pump might be a bit big for something like that
