Start with the Base Pump, your Simple Pump hand-operated pump

When considering an integrated pumping system, it helps to break it down into its sub-assembly parts. The basic Simple Pump (SP) hand pump is already an cost effective buy, priced considerably less than any other comparably made metal hand pump.

The Simple Pump™ is able to pump from MUCH further down than other hand pump while requiring less than half the physical effort those other hand pumps need. It is the most efficient hand pump on the market, making it capable of pumping water into your home’s pressure tank even from deep wells.

No other pump comes close to matching what the Simple Pump offers you in quality, value and efficiency for your precious dollar.

And when you consider the solar pump system, the savings become even greater.

Let’s look at some approximate prices for a fairly typical system.
