This article is about an older version of DF.

The pump operator job is enabled in dwarves to allow them to use screw pumps designated to "start pump manually".

This is useful for starting a perpetual motion power plant, and the job can also be used to get dwarves without specialized skills (such as haulers) experience for stat gains. However, it's not recommended to put fortress critical pumps on manual labor, because if your lazy pump operators all try to sleep or eat or party at once the pumping stops.
