Simple Pump™ is made completely from lead-free, CNC-machined stainless steel and aluminum components. (Aluminum is never in contact with water.)
All components are Safe Drinking Water Act compliant.
Simple Pump™ is designed with very few points of wear: the u-cup seals on the piston and the rod seals in the pump head.
With normal use, your maintenance expenses average only $5 per year!
