Simple Pump can be quickly moved from well to well, making periodic well sampling easy and fast.
Simple Pump's small access diameter of 1.75" makes it ideal for environmental sampling/well monitoring applications.
Safely move contaminated water, highly impacted ground water, and water containing debris.
Many of these features are literally unique to the Simple Pump
The points below relate to benefits described elsewhere on this website. Here they are focussed on what is especially important in sampling applications.
Easy to pump 5 GPM ensures sufficient surge
Much more effective than common small pumps.
Light but tough
Easier to deploy than common heavy pumps. No heavy truck needed to carry to site. No special lifting rig required for installation. For example, all components required to pump from 92 feet weigh just 80 pounds.
No cutting and gluing PVC
Possible lengths of 108”, 54” and 27” with the 4' riser tube that can easily be raised or lowered ensure that everything screws together for any given depth requirement.
Pump from static levels up to 350 feet using the lever-arm model -- 225 feet with the DC Motor. (More info.)
Works smoothly even in hard-freeze temperatures.
Can be safely and quickly installed/moved with a few basic tools - e.g. Allen wrenches and vice grips.
Upgrade path for hand-operated to motorized
Power-frugal 1/5 horsepower DC motor can be bolted onto the pump head in minutes. Can be powered by solar or other DC source.
Great substitute for air driven pumps
Free from air line issues such as maintenance, water condensing and freezing, in-place network of lines.
Safety in possible gas ignition situations
Hand operation or above ground motor avoids possible danger of an ignition point from submersible pump.
The ONLY hand pump made using CNC machining
All metal in contact with fluid is stainless steel. Graphite-impregnated bronze bushings are used at the three pump-head pivot points.
Unmatched durability: designed for 50+ years.
More affordable than any comparable pump. Lowest total cost of ownership.
5-year Warranty. 1-year warranty on the DC motor.
