The Simple Pump™ Hand-Operated Water Pump
Or use as your primary pump.
GIVE’S YOU FULL USE OF ALL YOUR HOME’S TAPS AND PLUMBING FIXTURE
With Simple Pump, you can easily pump into a pressurized plumbing system — or uphill — or up to a gravity-feed tank — or into a pressurized irrigation system! NO OTHER HAND PUMP CAN GIVE YOU THIS CAPABILITY!
With other hand pumps, you are delivering water to a bucket, or to a trough or outside tank at ground level.
Comes with a US standard hose adaptor on a 3/4″ NPT fitting.
Simple Pump is the most capable hand pump (retain use of your home’s plumbing system, pump from 350 feet water level, and more)
It is the best made — the only hand-pump made with computer controlled machining from aerospace grade lead-free stainless steel and aluminum. (All metal parts in contact with water are steel.)
AND YET IT IS MARKEDLY LESS EXPENSIVE THAN ANY OTHER “SERIOUS” HAND-PUMP.
Standard 24-inch handle When pumping manually, the unique lever arm pump only takes 12 lbs. of force to pump 5 gallons per minute from 100 feet.
Go Deeper with the optional 36-inch handle The 36″ handle cuts the required pumping force in half! So easy to use, a child can pump up to 5 gallons per minute. This decreased effort also means you can pump more easily from further down – from as deep as 350 feet water level! (More info.)
EASY TO INSTALL
If you have a well with a pitless adaptor, you can install yourself (helper recommended). About two-thirds of our clients install their own pump. No winch/hoist or specialized tools needed, as with many hand pumps. And no cutting or gluing of PVC required.
Installs in as little as 2 hours using common tools. As one client put it, “My dog could have installed this pump if he had opposing thumbs! Totally awesome, and works perfectly.”
Or you can, of course, have installation done by your local professional installer. (If your submersible piping exits through the well cap, then the skills and tools of a professional are required.)
The Simple Pump is freeze-proof with a 1/16″ weep hole drilled at 48 inches from the top fitting. (And if that is not deep enough for your area, we’ll do a custom weep hole further down, at no charge.)
Water bleeds back down below the frost line when the pump is not in use. We have many pumps in northern Canadian provinces, Alaska and the northern states in the USA without any freeze issues — operating 24/7 without difficulty, even in high-wind, freezing temperatures reaching -30°F.
Can hold the column of water for months, and more.
Simple Pump is more affordable than comparable pumps. But the cost-savings goes beyond the initial set up.
So durable, it has a 50-year lifespan. Aircraft-grade, solid billets of metal are computer machined for maximum precision — much stronger than casting. And because the parts fit together so precisely, wear is greatly reduced. Graphite-impregnated bronze bushings at the three pump-head pivot points further increase durability. Routine maintenance consists of replacing the seals in the pump cylinder and pump head. Replacement times found by most clients range between 3 and 10+ years, at a cost of only $25. (Time will with amount of use and condition of the water.)
All components are Safe Drinking Water Act compliant.
If you are away from your property, for stretches of time, you can remove the pump lever and lower the pump head, leaving your pump inconspicuous and protected (as shown to the right).
AND ONE ADDITIONAL UNIQUE AND INCREDIBLE FEATURE: Many people find this feature compelling — just knowing it’s there, whether or not they ever use it…
IF, at some point in the future, you wanted to have a motorized Simple Pump, you just do a quick and easy conversion (approx 10 mins) with the Motor Extension Kit. You don’t have to buy a whole new pump. AND if you then have an emergency with the motor, you can switch back to hand-operation, again in only about ten minutes! No other hand pump offers this hand-motor-hand conversion option.
We understand it’s crucial a pump works when you need it
We took all the benefits of traditional hand pumps – and improved them. Then we took all the disadvantages – and got rid of them.
The result… an incredibly durable and efficient water pump that lasts for generations.
