WHY SIMPLE PUMP™ – IN POINT BY POINT FORM
To the best of our knowledge, these features are unique to the Simple Pump™
SIMPLE PUMP™ PUMPs INTO PRESSURE – EVEN FROM DEEP WELLS
Simple Pump™ is the ONLY hand-pump that can be installed by a Do It Yourself customer and still pump water into a home’s pressurized plumbing system, into a pressurized irrigation system or just uphill. Plus Simple Pump™ can pump water from as deep as 325 feet static water level. No other hand pump can match this.
SIMPLE PUMP™ IS SUPER EASY TO USE AND INSTALL
Extremely easy to install. Even for the non professional, a standard installation takes around 2 – 3 hours, by far the easiest of any other deep pumping lever arm hand pump. In total, about two-thirds of our clients install their pump by themselves. We provide excellent installation instructions, plus installation videos can be found on YouTube and our website.
So easy to use….even a child can operate the Simple Pump™.
Light weight. On average, Simple Pump™ weights between one third and one half the total weight of competing systems at any given depth, making installation simpler and easier. In fact, Simple Pump’s light weight is one of the reasons it pumps water so easily.
No special tools needed. You only need a few basic tools. No cutting, gluing or threading of PVC required.
Use Simple Pump as a backup beside your existing submersible pump in a 4” well casing. If running solo, only a 2” well casing is needed.
MOTORIZED SIMPLE PUMP™
Simple Pump™ is the only hand pump designed (and warranted by the factory) to upgrade now or later from hand operation to motorized. Just remove the lever and linkage and bolt on the motor. No competitor can match this feature.
The 12 or 24 VDC motor can be installed in just a few minutes. Most DIY people who have a few basic tools can follow the instructions to install the motor themselves.
It is super easy to switch back to lever arm operation in an emergency. Think about that for a moment. If anything goes wrong, within 15 minutes you can remove the motor, reinstall the handle and be pumping water by hand.
Simple Pump™ is perfect for off-grid use as well.
UNRIVALED QUALITY AND AFFORDABILITY
Superior durability. Simple Pump™ is computer designed for 50+ years of use and comes with a five-year factory warranty.
Unsurpassed reliability combined with very low maintenance costs. For example, we use graphite-impregnated bronze bushings at the three pump head pivot points. A replacement pump cylinder seal kit only costs about $25 and will last 3 – 10+ years depending upon use and water quality.
Simple Pump™ boasts the lowest total cost of ownership. Add it up. Low initial cost plus low maintenance plus longevity.
SUPERIOR MANUFACTURE AND MATERIALS
Simple Pump™ is manufactured to the highest standard using computer numerical control (CNC) machining.
Our pump is constructed using aerospace quality lead free Stainless Steel components along with schedule 120 food grade PVC pipe. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
Some of the following Simple Pump™ features are shared with many other pumps. But, to the best of our knowledge, there is no other hand operated well pump that combines ALL of these outstanding features plus Simple Pump’s unique features. Add in Simple Pump’s lowest price among all its competitors and you have the best hand pump on the market.
PUMP INSTALLATION AND USE
Frost proof down to the lowest temperatures.
Tough enough for farm, ranch and industrial use.
It is light and mobile enough to be used for groundwater sampling and monitoring. This cannot be over empathized.
Simple Pump™ can be used for water pumping in remote areas, such as range and ranch applications, and as a rugged emergency back-up.
For operational security, or simply for esthetics, in just minutes the lever arm can be removed and the pump dropped down into low-profile mode.
The Simple Pump™ is light and easy to transport, but still extremely tough. No heavy truck is needed to carry it to your site.
Because it is light, no special lifting rig is required for installation. Nor are there any special tools required for installation.
THE HIGHEST QUALITY
Simple Pump™ is Safe Drinking Water Act compliant. Not all pumps can boast this certification.
Simple Pump™ is approved by the US National Park Service for installation in National Parks.
It is also approved by the US Forest Service for installation in National Forests.
MANUFACTURE AND MATERIALS
We use only the highest quality lead-free stainless steel. Many other comparable pumps are constructed from cast iron, which leaches iron into the water. This can affect the taste of your water, stain your clothes and even reach unhealthy levels over time. Some manufacturers try to get around this problem by chrome plating the iron. At best this just delays the inevitable rusting and iron leeching.
The drop pipe and other PVC components are constructed from high quality schedule 120 food grade PVC. While more expensive than the PVC used in other pump systems, it is also the safest.
