Deep Well Hand Pump
Simple Pump Is Unsurpassed

If you need a hand pump to pump water from a deep well there is nothing that compares with Simple Pump. 

Simple Pump is designed to deliver water from static water levels as deep as 325 feet with half the effort or less required for other deep well hand pumps that can only pump from 200 feet static.

Unlike shallow well hand pumps that rely on priming and suction to lift the water from the well, Simple Pump is a positive displacement "sucker rod pump" with a mechanical connection from the pump hand lever to a cylinder with piston at the bottom of the drop pipe. 

Each stroke of the handle lifts a cylinder full of water to the head of the pump.  A heavy duty stainless steel check valve at the bottom of the cylinder maintains the water level in the drop pipe so that the next time you begin pumping, delivery of the water will start again after a few strokes of the handle.

Why Simple Pump?

Deep well hand pump functionality depends on factors that affect the weight of the water and pump components that are being lifted to bring water to the surface and the strength, stamina and range of motion limitations of typical human pumpers.

Simple Pump has the best design of any hand pump you can compare.  Compare the size of our 1 inch diameter cylinder - the modest volume and weight of water in the pipe being lifted to the surface is less.  The encapsulated fiberglass sucker rods are light weight but strong.  The aluminum lever arm adds less weight than steel.  The upstroke of the handle is weightless when the water column in the pipe is full.

The combination of intelligent design and precision CNC machined components makes Simple Pump the only hand pump in the world that can pump water with minimal effort from 325 feet.  There are thousands of Simple Pump deep well hand pumps serving customers since 1999.

Choose the Pump Cylinder & Lever Arm That Works for You

Simple Pump has two different pump cylinders available, and two different lever arms.  The smaller cylinder can deliver up to 3 gallons per minute pumping 60 strokes per minute. The larger up to 5 gallons.  Note that these water volumes are dependent on the enthusiasm of the pump operator.

The hand force pushing down on the lever arm for a static water level of 350 feet is:

Small cylinder and long lever 0.05 pounds x depth in feet to the static water level (350 feet = 17.5 pounds of force)

Small cylinder and short lever 0.10 pounds x dspan>

Large cylinder and long lever 0.06 pounds x depth in feet to the static water level (350 feet = 21 pounds of force)

Large cylinder and short lever 0.12 pounds x depth in feet to the static water level (350 feet = 42 pounds of force)

Using the same calculation method, a small cylinder long lever arm pump will require 12.5 pounds of downward hand force pumping from a static level of 250 feet.

Two Pumps In One Well

Simple Pump can be installed in a 4 inch or larger casing along with an existing submersible pump.  The Simple Pump is typically suspended above the submersible at a depth below the static water level based on the well recharge or recovery rate.  This arrangement assures the availability of water if the submersible fails or if electricity to the submersible is unavailable.

Simple Pump Can Fit in a Two Inch Casing

Simple Pump will fit in a 2 inch or larger casing. Standard well cap sizes are 2, 4, 4.5, 5, 6, 6 over 4, 6.25, 7 and 8 inches and there is a mounting plate is available for adapting the pump to a structural cover over open pit wells, cisterns and tanks.
