For your Off-Grid Life – Hand or Solar Simple Pumps
“The feeling of independence is incomparable. Come what may, my family and I will have fresh water. What an AWESOME feeling! Great product, lives up to the claims and worth every penny.”
Whether you are completely off-grid now,
or are building self reliance
For the Off-Grid life, you probably want a pump that you can RELY ON… that is extremely reliable and easy to pump… that is modern and uses the best materials and manufacturing.
That’s the Simple Pump.
PUMP YOUR DAY’S WATER, WITHOUT IT FEELING LIKE A MAJOR WORKOUT
We have made the Simple Pump MUCH easier to pump with than any seemingly comparable hand pump. Even from our maximum of 325′ static water level, the needed effort is still just moderate. No other hand pump can come close to this performance. It’s so easy to pump with that even fairly young children can pump a substantial amount of water in most wells (well… before they get too bored, anyway!).
With our check valve, you can pump right into your pressurized household plumbing system and have use of all your plumbing fixtures. Pumping your pressure tank up to about 45 psi is a breeze.
(More information on how to pump into pressure, here.)
OR MAKE IT EVEN EASIER WITH ONE OF OUR ADD-ON SOLAR PUMPS
A solar motor can be added to the hand pump — now or at any time in the future.
The super-efficient, 12 or 24v DC Simple Pump motors can run off just one or two solar panels (depending on location)… or off other DC sources.
Six options ranging from the complete, integrated system with panels, stand and control electronics to a simple motor where you supply the rest.
AND if you then have an emergency with the motor, you can switch back to hand-operation, in only about fifteen minutes! No other hand pump offers this hand-motor-hand conversion option.
Additional Advantages of our 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 half 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 other hand pumps. And no cutting or gluing of PVC required.
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.)
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.
