What does a Simple Pump Cost?

The Hand Operated Simple Pump:
Example Pricing plus Table of Ballpark Prices

Some context for thinking about Pricing

The Simple Pump gives you full use of all your home’s taps and plumbing fixtures… with only moderate effort and even from deep wells.

In considering price, please consider the context.  There are cheap pumps that may be made of plastic or cheap (not durable) metal, and 
– CAN’T pump into your pressure tank
– CAN’T pump from very far down
– and are probably NOT freeze-proof

Among what we might call “serious” pumps, Simple Pump is actually the LEAST COST of the bunch, even though it can do much more! One group of five friends (who happened to be various kinds of trades professionals, well used to judging tools and machinery) THOROUGHLY researched everything available. They all bought the Simple Pump and gave a list of reasons that basically amounted to “much more capability for much less cost”.

We are confident that if you do a detailed comparison, you’ll find that no other pump comes close to the combination of QUALITY + CAPABILITY + ECONOMY that the Simple Pump offers you.

My wife can operate it with one hand and very little effort (from 120 feet water level). It has the water flowing in just a few seconds. Piece of cake.

Consider: What are you getting for your dollar?

You can find cheap plastic pumps, but they can’t pump from deep water levels, and they are not built to last. And such pumps can only pump into a bucket, rather than give you full use of your home’s plumbing system system.

You can find other “serious” and seemingly comparable pumps. They are more substantially made than the cheap pumps, but most can only pump to a bucket or non-pressurized tank. Those other pumps require from 2.5 to 5 times the pumping effort needed by the Simple Pump. And they are 25-50% more expensive than Simple Pump!
