You need water to live; this is just a fact of life.

No matter where you reside, whether it be in the city, suburbs, or rural areas, having a reliable water source is vital to sustaining life. 

While many of us take clean water for granted, the fact is that having a dependable water source isn’t always as simple as turning on the tap. 

For some people, acquiring water requires planning and forethought. If you live in an area where water isn’t readily available, or if you have a private well, then you know just how important it is to have a dependable water source.

One of the best ways to ensure that you have a dependable water source is to install a modular well pump. 

What Is a Modular Well Pump?

A modular well pump is a water pump that is placed directly into your well, providing a direct connection to the water source. 

This type of pump can easily be converted from a manual well hand pump to a motorized well pump without having to replace the entire pump system.

Currently, the experts at Simple Pump provide the ONLY modular well pump system available on the market today.

Our top-rated deep deep well hand pumps can easily be installed next to an existing submersible pump. Plus, being that the hand pump is modular, you can easily replace the manual hand pump lever with one of our motorized pump heads to utilize our pump cylinder system to automatically pump water.

In addition, our pump motors can be connected to solar panels and a backup battery to have a completely off-the-grid well pump system!

You can also rest assured knowing that if a storm knocks out your power, blows away the solar panel, or something else happens to the motor, the Simple Pump modular well pump can quickly be converted back to a manual hand pump so you never lose access to your well water.

Modular Well Pump Parts

Each well pump by Simple Pump is made of only the highest-quality materials, and they are consistently the best available on the market. 

Our pumps are manufactured using aerospace-grade, lead-free stainless steel — and they are always built in accordance with the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).

Interchangeable Well Pump Heads

The well pump head (also known as the “pump head”) is the part of the water pump system assembly that is seen above the ground.

Simple Pump has designed its pump heads to be used with either a hand-operated pump lever or a motorized pump. And the pump head can be converted from manual to motor in minutes!

Pump Cylinder

Simple Pump’s pump cylinder contains the piston that lifts the water in the pump.

Simple Pump offers multiple cylinder options depending on your well’s static water level and whether a motor will be used.

Hand Pump Lever

The hand pump lever is a handle that attaches to the top of the cylinder.

When you push and pull on the handle, it moves the piston inside the cylinder, which pumps water up from your well.

Pump Rods

Pump rods are long, hollow tubes that go down your well and attach to the piston inside the cylinder.

The pump rods are what transfer the motion from the handle (or motor) to the piston, which pumps water from your well.

Pump Base

The pump base is an adapter that goes on top of the well casing and provides a place to attach the well cap, hand pump, or motorized pump head.

Well Cap

The well cap is the removable cover that goes on top of the well casing and pump base. 

It provides easy access to the hand pump or motorized pump head, and it also keeps dirt, debris, and water from entering your well.

Easy Installation and Conversion

One of the best things about our modular pump is how easy it is to install and convert. 

Installation is a breeze, and you can easily convert from manual to motorized (and back to manual) in no time at all with the help of one other person. Plus, our modular design means that you can easily replace any part of the pump without having to replace the entire system.

This makes the Simple Pump modular well pump an excellent choice for those who want a dependable water source that will last for years to come.

The bottom line is that the Simple Pump offers the best — and ONLY — modular well pump on the market, and it is the perfect solution for your water acquisition needs.
