At Simple Pump, we’re thrilled to share Cody Crone’s latest YouTube video on his Wranglerstar channel, where he demonstrates how to upgrade the Simple Pump Deep Well Hand Pump with our new LBLD24WR motor and solar power kit. With over 2.5 million followers, Cody’s detailed walkthrough is an excellent resource for anyone looking to go off-grid with their water supply.

From Hand Pump to Solar-Powered Efficiency

Cody begins by showcasing the components of the upgrade, starting with the powerful 300-watt solar panels. These panels are mounted on a robust frame, ensuring stability and durability even in harsh weather conditions. The setup includes a sturdy steel pipe and 150 pounds of concrete to secure the solar array, which is crucial given the large surface area of the panels.

Seamless Integration with the Existing System

One of the key highlights of this upgrade is how seamlessly the new motor integrates with the existing Simple Pump system. Cody replaces the manual hand pump with the LBLD24WR motor, showing how easy it is to switch to a motorized system. The motor is connected to a charge controller and a set of 24-volt batteries, powered entirely by the solar panels.

Efficient and Quiet Operation

Cody demonstrates the motor’s operation, highlighting its efficiency and quiet performance. The motor runs slowly, minimizing wear and tear, and ensuring a long lifespan. Despite its slow speed, the motor effectively pumps water from deep underground, showcasing the Simple Pump’s capability to deliver a steady water supply even in remote locations.

User-Friendly and Accessible Installation

One of the standout features of the Simple Pump upgrade kit is its user-friendly design. Cody emphasizes that even those without an extensive electrical background can easily install the system. The plug-and-play connectors and pre-done wiring make the installation process straightforward and hassle-free.

A Complete Off-Grid Solution

With the solar-powered Simple Pump system, users can enjoy a completely off-grid water supply. Cody points out that the system is ideal for remote cabins or any location where a reliable water source is essential. The solar panels, charge controller, and batteries work together to provide a consistent and sustainable water pumping solution.

Final Thoughts and Next Steps

Cody concludes the video by testing the system and ensuring everything is working correctly. The solar-powered Simple Pump efficiently pumps water into a pressure tank, making it a versatile and practical solution for off-grid living. Cody’s next project involves building a shed to house the pump system, adding another layer of protection and organization.
