Warranty and Return Policy


Warranty Duration

With the exception of the Simple Pump DC motor drives and the Wear Parts (u-cup seals), all Simple Pump Co. products are warranted against defective materials and workmanship for a period of five (5) years from the date of purchase.
The gearmotors are warranted against defective materials and workmanship for a period of 18 months from the date of purchase. Routine maintenance consists of brush replacement, which may be needed after 5,000 hours of operation. Other motor unit components are warrantied for five years.

Manufacturing Defects

Simple Pump Company determines whether a part has failed due to defect or abuse. Simple Pump Co. may require digital pictures of the failed part, the return of that part to Simple Pump Co., or both, as a condition of granting credit for the replacement. Most of the time photos will be sufficient, which means speedy resolution of any warranty issue.

For the US: In case of manufacturing defects, but not customer abuse, any part will be replaced and shipped, via best method, to the customer’s site, at no charge. When return of the part is required by Simple Pump Co., Simple Pump Co. will pay shipping fees, but only if Simple Pump Co. specifies how the part will be shipped, including mode, carrier and speed of service.

Outside the US: In case of manufacturing defects, but not customer abuse, any part will be replaced. Customer will be responsible for shipping.

Routine Maintenance and Parts Not Covered by Warranty

Routine maintenance consists of seal replacement. Interval varies according to amount and type of use. Roughly 3 to 10+ years.

Parts that are not covered by the warranty are those with an expected lifetime that varies in direct proportion to wear from normal use (“Wear Parts”). Wear parts include U-cup seals (on the piston in the cylinder, and the rod gland in the pump head), and three graphite-impregnated bronze bushings (over pins that keep the pump lever, and related assemblies, moving easily together).

Coverage Limited to Supported Configurations

The greatest pumping depth possible is that for hand-pumping to ground level at ambient pressure — a static water level of 325 feet. The maximum for a particular well is then determined by the combination of several factors, including whether pumping into a pressurized plumbing system, or using manual or motor to power. Additionally, when using the Motor Extension, the maximum supported depth depends on the capacity of the pump cylinder used, and the voltage at which it is run.

Installation, Use and Maintenance Consistent with Documentation

Installation, use and maintenance of both the well and Simple Pump equipment must be consistent with the documentation provided by Simple Pump Co.
