How Does a Soap Pump Work?

Answer

A soap pump is found of the top of hand soap dispensers or on the front of a wall mounted soap dispenser. There is a tube that connects the pump to the liquid soap in the container. The pumping action forces air out from the bottom of the tube and causes a suction to pull the soap to the top of the tube. Eventually soap is pushed out with a pumping of the dispenser. Once soap is sucked into the tube, pressure keeps it there, ready to be dispensed with the next pump. Soap dispensers with pumps work as an aid to stop the spread of germs by not sharing bar soap.
