 As backup right beside your existing submersible, or use as your primary pump.
Pump from 350' water level.
(If installed by a professional. 250' max for self-installation.) So easy to use, a child can pump up to 5 gallons per minute. So durable, it has a 50-year lifespan.
So affordable, you can install it anywhere you need safe drinking water.
ONE 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.


EASY TO PUMP INTO YOUR HOUSEHOLD PLUMBING

Or an irrigation system. With our one-way check valve to prevent pushback from the pressure, you can easily pump into a pressurized plumbing system -- or uphill.

PUMPING DEPTH

Standard 24-inch handle
With the standard 24" handle, this hand-operated Simple Pump requires such little force to operate, it easily pumps 5 gallons per minute from depths up to about 300 feet - AND CAN PUMP RIGHT INTO YOUR PRESSURIZED HOUSEHOLD PLUMBING.

Go Deeper with the optional 36-inch handle
Tested on a 120-foot deep well with 70 foot static water level, the 36" handle decreased the required pumping force from 8 lbs to 4. This decreased effort means you can pump more easily from further down - from as deep as 350 feet water level!

[Note: These depth figures are for water delivered at the pump head. If you are pumping (for example) fifty feet uphill to your house, the required force for that part will decrease the depth below ground from which you can pump.]

EASY TO INSTALL

Two-thirds of our clients install their pump, themselves. It's easier than you might think, with our installation documents and videos, and with phone assistance available. The other third use a professional installer.
