The Hand-Operated Simple Pump
FITS IN ALMOST ALL WELLS
Fits alongside the submersible piping in nearly all 4″ and larger wells.
(Or in a 2 or 3″ well alone.)
FROM 325 FEET WATER LEVEL
MUCH further down than other pumps.
And that still requires only moderate effort!
LESS PUMPING EFFORT
One third to one fifth the pumping effort needed by seemingly comparable pumps.
So easy to use, a child can pump up to 5 gallons per minute.
PUMP INTO YOUR PRESSURE TANK
Gives you full use of all your taps and fixtures.
Can pump into your pressure tank from as far down as 225′ water level!
No other hand pump can match this.
The best made hand pump — the ONLY one made with computer controlled machining from aerospace grade lead-free stainless steel. (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. One person installation and your video did a shining job.”
Or you can, of course, have installation done by your local professional installer.
(If your submersible piping exits through the well cap, then the skills and tools of a professional are required.)
All components are Safe Drinking Water Act compliant.
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.
“I installed the pump this Fall at 11,000 feet and it is now working during the coldest part of the year!”
After pumping, the water will sink down to the weep hole. Then a few pumps will bring it up, next day. If the pump is not being used for a while, the water will slowly sink back down to your water level. No priming is necessary. Just pump to bring the water back to the surface.
So durable, it has an expected 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 (Time will vary with amount of use and condition of the water.)
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.
