Introduction

Thank you for purchasing a Simple Pump Motorized Pump with Scotch Yoke Drive (SYD). It is designed for use with the Simple Pump model 100 and 125 hand pumps. When assembled and installed on the Model 125, this gear motor and drive is capable of delivering between 1.6 and 3.1 gallons of water per minute (GPM) at a total head of up to 150 feet. Installed on the Model 100, it delivers between 1.0 and 2.0 GPM at a maximum total head of 225 feet. The greater the head, the lower the rate of flow.

“Total head” is the combination of

  • The depth of the well’s static water level.
  • The vertical rise above the pump head, after the water is pumped to the surface.
  • An additional 100 feet equivalent for pumping your pressure tank to 45psi.

The motor is available in two models, 12 volt and 24 volt DC. These instructions cover both versions.
