The Hand-Operated Simple Pump
For Shallow or Deep Well
Fits alongside the submersible piping in nearly all 4" and larger wells.
So easy to use, a child can pump up to 5 gallons per minute. This decreased effort also means you can pump more easily from further down - from as deep as 325 feet water level. And that still takes only moderate effort!
Gives you full use of all your taps and fixtures.
Can pump into your pressure tank or uphill --- even from deep wells! NO OTHER HAND PUMP CAN GIVE YOU THIS CAPABILITY!
We took all the benefits of traditional hand pumps - and improved them.
Then we took all the disadvantages - and got rid of them.
The result... an incredibly durable and efficient water pump that can last for generations.
Some of the Many Advantages of the Simple Pump
The best made and pump -- the ONLY one made with computer controlled machining from aerospace grade lead-free stainless steel and aluminum. (All metal parts in contact with water are stainless steel.)
AND YET IT IS MARKEDLY LESS EXPENSIVE THAN ANY OTHER "SERIOUS" HAND-PUMP.
Easy to Install
If you have a well with a pitless adaptor, you may like to install the pump yourself (helper recommended). About two-thirds of our clients install their own pump. You only need simple tools such as Allen wrenches and vice grips -- No winch/hoist or specialized tools needed, as with many hand pumps. And no cutting or gluing of PVC required.
As one client put it, "My dog could have installed this pump if he had opposing thumbs! Totally awesome, and works perfectly."
Or you can, of course, have installation done by your local professional installer.
Connection for standard 3/4" hose (use drinking-water-compatible hose) or 3/4" FNPT pipe.
The Simple Pump is freeze-proof with a 1/16" weep hole drilled at 48 inches from the top fitting, or with our pitless adaptor. (For a deeper frost line, we'll do a custom weep hole further down, at no charge.)
We have many pumps in northern Canadian provinces, Alaska and the northern states in the USA without any freeze issues --- operating 24/7 without difficulty, even in high-wind, freezing temperatures reaching -30°F. (More details.)
Can hold the column of water for months, and more.
Simple Pump is more affordable than comparable pumps. But the cost-savings goes beyond the initial set up.
So durable, it has a 50-year lifespan. Aircraft-grade, solid billets of metal are computer machined for maximum precision --- much stronger than casting. And because the parts fit together so precisely, wear is greatly reduced. Graphite-impregnated bronze bushings at the three pump-head pivot points further increase durability. Routine maintenance consists of replacing the seals in the pump cylinder and pump head. Replacement times found by most clients range between 3 and 10+ years, at a cost of only $25. (Time will vary with amount of use and condition of the water.)
All components are Safe Drinking Water Act compliant.
If you are away from your property, for stretches of time, you can remove the pump lever and lower the pump head, leaving your pump inconspicuous and protected (as shown to the right). This can be further hidden with a shrub or a hollow imitation rock.
AND ONE ADDITIONAL UNIQUE FEATURE - OUR ADD-ON MOTORS
Many people find this feature compelling just knowing it's there, whether or not they ever use it...
IF, at some point in the future, you wanted to have a motorized Simple Pump, you just do a quick and easy conversion with a Simple Pump motor. You don't have to buy a whole new pump. AND if you then have an emergency with the motor, you can switch back to hand-operation, in only about ten minutes! No other hand pump offers this hand-motor-hand conversion option.
