Industrial and Environmental Applications
Use the hand pump or motorized version to safely move contaminated water, highly impacted ground water, water containing trace elements and other debris.
Rugged and Reliable
Over 200 Simple Pumps have been installed in Canadian solid waste landfills where the Simple Pump is pumping garbage water as part of methane recovery operations.
These pumps operate 24/7/365 and have been doing so for several years with minimal maintenance issues.
Most of these pumps are pumping from 65 feet using 12v DC Simple Pump motors powered by the sun.
The 24″ lever arm provides a leverage ratio of 3.3 to 1.
This unique only takes 12 lbs. of force to pump up to 5 gallons per minute from 100′.
At 200 feet, with our 36″ lever arm, you still only need 12 pounds of force per stroke.
Works smoothly even when installed at an angle or in hard-freeze areas.
Simple Pump is an economical choice for desalinization, irrigation, and dewatering applications
Use in Sampling: Rugged, Reliable, Easy to Deploy
Convenient and easy to use. Simple Pump can be quickly moved from well to well, making periodic well sampling easy and fast.
Simple Pump’s small access diameter of 1.75″ makes it ideal for environmental sampling/well monitoring applications.
(Particular benefits for sampling applications.)
Safely move contaminated water, highly impacted ground water, and water containing debris.
More Advantages for Sampling Applications
The points below relate to benefits described elsewhere on this website.
Here they are focussed on what is especially important in sampling applications.
Easy to pump 5 GPM ensures sufficient surge
Much more effective than common small pumps.
Light but tough
Easier to deploy than common heavy pumps. No heavy truck needed to carry to site.
No special lifting rig required for installation.
For example, all components required to pump from 92 feet weigh just 80 pounds.
No cutting and gluing PVC
Possible lengths of 108”, 54” and 27” with the 4′ riser tube that can easily be raised or lowered ensure that everything screws together for any given depth requirement.
Pump from static levels up to 325 feet using the lever-arm model — 225 feet with the DC Motor. (More info.)
Works smoothly even in hard-freeze temperatures.
Can be safely and quickly installed/moved with a few basic tools – e.g. Allen wrenches and vice grips.
Upgrade path for hand-operated to motorized
Power-frugal 1/5 or 1/4 horsepower DC motor can be bolted onto the pump head in minutes.
Can be powered by solar or other DC source.
Great substitute for air driven pumps
Free from air line issues such as maintenance, water condensing and freezing, in-place network of lines.
The ONLY hand pump made using CNC machining
All metal in contact with fluid is stainless steel.
Graphite-impregnated bronze bushings are used at the three pump-head pivot points.
Unmatched durability: designed for 50+ years.
More affordable than any comparable pump. Lowest total cost of ownership.
