Water Hand Pumps

Make water available, whenever and for whatever scenario may come.

Simple Hand Pumps

 Hand pumps come in all shapes and sizes, but none are as well designed, or comes near the capacity and quality as Simple Pumps.

Simple Pumps outshine the competition:

  • Fits in most wells
  • Pumps water from 325 feet depth
  • Easy effort to achieve high water yield
  • Pressure tank pumping capacity
  • High pressure capacity
  • Holds prime and quickly produces water
  • Freeze proof for Montana winters
  • Prices that make sense

How the Simple Pump System Works

Simple Pumps use machine engineered hardware to achieve the best hand pump results available today.

At the bottom of the system, setting below static water in the well, is a piston inside a pump cylinder. Unlike other systems that require priming and mechanisms at or near the top of the well, Simple Pumps takes water from the bottom of the system and lifts it upward.

At the top of the well, either a manual handle or motor is used to move a center rod that is attached to the piston and cylinder down in the water, moving it up and down. As the rod moves up and down, a ball valve in the piston seals in its seat and a whole column of water lifted up. At the same time, water rushes into the pump cylinder from the bottom, ready for the next cycle. This method increases the amount of water, pressure, and capacity that beats any other option on the market.

PARTS OF THE PUMP SYSTEM

PUMP HEAD, WITH HANDLE OR MOTOR

The Pump Head, with handle, motor, or assisted hand drive, is the assembly visible above the ground. Here it is shown with the lever-arm handle, mounted on a well cap, on a few inches of well casing.

DROP PIPE KITS

The Drop Pipe Kits have a 1/16″ diameter weep or drain hole drilled 4-feet down from the top. When the pump is not being used, the weep or drain hole allows the water in the head to bleed out. In cold climates, the water will not freeze. And in hot climates, water does not get heated.

Drop pipe makes up most of the height of the pump system. All the DROP PIPE KITS (these plus top and bottom) carry water from the stainless steel pump cylinder at the bottom to the stainless steel pump head at the top.

PUMP CYCLINDER

The pump cylinder is a 17″-long and made of stainless steel metal. It comes in two sizes.

Most wells, with a static water level higher than 275 feet, a 1.75-inch diameter model is the most common model. For static levels or lifts between 275 -325 feet, a 1.5 inch diameter model is used.
