Lever arm hand well pumps have been in use around the world for over 150 years and in many developing economies millions of people use them today to get clean drinking water from wells.
The lever arm hand well pump has been reinvented for the 21st Century, improving the advantages of previous designs and eliminating the negatives. The Simple Pump™ uses a positive displacement lift rod design, also referred to as a "sucker rod", to lift water from the well to the surface and can pump as much as 5 gallons per minute from depths of up to 350 feet (19 liters per minute from 107 meters) with minimal hand force.
With the standard 24 inch
handle, the hand-operated
Simple Pump requires very little force to operate
easily pumps 5 gallons per minute from depths to
about 200 feet, delivered at
normal household water pressure
of about 50 psi.
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. Request a Simple Pump quote.
Flow, Depth Supported,
Required Pumping Effort
Simple Pump can be installed in a 2-inch well, and can sit alongside most conventional submersible electric pumps in a 4-inch or larger well as a manual backup.
Well caps are available in 2-inch, 4-inch, 5-inch, 6-inch and 7 or 8 inch diameters. Other sizes can be custom made.
Hand Water Pump Features
A Very Cost Effective Investment
All of the components for a typical Simple Pump installation are likely to cost less than $1,500. The Motor Extension Kit is about $800. The cost for deeper wells increases according to the depth for the components needed to position the lift rod at the depth of the water in the well. With a useful life of 50 years or more, and with reasonably priced replacement parts, a Simple Pump installation is likely to be of benefit to your grand children.
