EASY HAND-PUMPING INTO PRESSURE
You don’t have to settle for that, at all!
If you had thought it was difficult or impossible --- well, you were absolutely correct --- for most kinds of hand pumps. The structure and pumping mechanism of most pumps are quite heavy, and a very substantial effort is needed to pump water from even a moderate depth, never mind then also pumping into a 50 psi household system!
Simple Pump has the advantages of:
Aerospace quality steel machined to computer-controlled aerospace quality and tolerances. As one person put it, “The parts look like they belong in an Indy car engine.” This precision gives you a highly efficient pump maximum conversion of your effort into useful work.
Light but very strong components... In the same way that a good car today is much lighter but also much stronger than a car of 30 years ago, a Simple Pump works better with less bulk. Less bulk in the pump means you put in markedly less effort to move a given amount of water.
How Easy Is It?
Let’s look at a fairly average system --- pumping from a static water level of 100 feet AND into household pressure at 50 psi. Using a Simple Pump, you will exert a total of only 12lbs. This is easy pumping, for most people.
For a deep well: e.g. 300 feet. You can hand-pump from this far down AND then pump into a 50psi household plumbing system with only 20lbs of effort.
These required-effort figures are DRAMATICALLY less other hand pumps, most of which can't pump into pressure at all, and a couple of which can do so only from very shallow wells.
And yes, inexpensive
You only need one extra component to be able to pump into pressure --- our pressure gauge with one-way check valve. This prevents the pressure kicking the pump back at you on the release half of the stroke and lets you keep ane eye on the pressure as you pump.
