Introduction

Thank you for purchasing a Simple Pump. We are extremely proud of the high quality products that we manufacture. We have installed our pumps in a variety of well types and sizes and our instructions are a result of installation experience and input from the USDA-FS-MTDC. Please carefully read through these instructions. Your time will be well spent. At any time, if you think you are overwhelmed, give us a call or get the help of a professional pump installer.

The ADA100 Rotary Hand Pump was developed in concert with the USDA-FS-MTDC in Missoula, Montana. The ADA100 is designed to deliver Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA - chemical-free) drinking water for the physically challenged or anyone who cannot operate a lever arm pump due to the high input force required with old-fashioned, cast iron lever arm pumps.

ADAAG (14.15.4) defines that an accessible hand pump must be able to be operated with a maximum of 5 lbs. of force and the control height must fall between 28”-40”. The axis of rotation of the 6” handle crank must fall 34” above the ground. With the ADA100, the input force required to deliver drinking water in 4-8 ounce increments, from 100 feet, is less than 5 lbs. The access elevation can be adjusted to fall within 28”-40”. The design of the pump drive system is intended to be robust allowing for long-term useful life in the outdoors.

We will be referring to parts by their part number and name. Use the attached parts list to identify parts as you read through these instructions.

The weight will vary depending on the number of drop pipe kits. The ends of this tube have been taped and stretch-wrapped to survive the rigors of shipping.
