Deep Well Hand Pump Pump Water By Hand From 300 Feet

The best easiest to use deep hand pump well available today is Simple Pump.

The unique thing about the Simple pump is that it reduces the pumping effort by half as compared to the other deep well hand pumps. Also, it delivers water from static water level as deep as 300 feet while others are just limited to 200 feet.

An ordinary shallow well hand pumps lift the water from well with the help of priming and suction. But, Simple Pump consists of a mechanical connection from pump hand lever to a cylinder which consists of a piston at the bottom of the drop pipe.

With stroke of handle the cylinder full of water lifts up towards the head of the pump. At the bottom of the cylinder a heavy duty stainless steel check valve maintains the water level in the drop pipe. This results in quick deliverance of water just after few strokes of handle next time.



Simple pump can pump water from 325 feet effortlessly because of quality designed CNC machined components. Simple pumps are serving customers successfully since 1999.

Why Choose Simple Pump

There are several factors that affect the functionality of the deep well hand pumps like the total weight of water & components of pump used to bring water to the surface. Also we have to keep in mind about the range of motion limitation, stamina and strength of typical human pumpers.

On the other hand, Simple pump has been designed to overcome the limitation of deep well pumps. The 1 inch diameter cylinder can lift modest volume of water to surface with less effort as compared to the deep well Hand pump. The strong encapsulated fiberglass sucker rods are light weight. The aluminum lever arms are lighter than steel. When the water column in the pipe is full, the upstroke of the handle is completely weightless.

Two Pumps in One Well

The proven sucker rod method is used to operate the Simple Pump. It consists of a lever arm which activates a rod attached to the cylinder made up of stainless steel at bottom of drop pipe. The small size of pipe and pump cylinder make them capable to fit in a 4 inch or larger casing with your submersible pump. In case of water fluctuation a reasonable depth of water is provided by suspending Simple pumps cylinder 15 feet higher to submersible pump.

In situations mostly occurs in cold weather, a small weep hole is provided at the drop pipe closet to the top of the well to help water to drain and check from freezing. In order to install Simple Pump we need a new well cap. This cap must consist of water and power ports for submersible pumps. To hold the body of Simple pump on the top of the well cap an additional port with split collar is needed. The ports are so balance that submersible pipe, power cord and the Simple Pump down pipe functions simultaneously without any kind of interference.

In order to avoid tampering or any act of vandalism the pump handle is easily removed. When not in use, the pump head can be ground on the well cap to maintain low visibility installation.

Hand Pumping Effort
There are two different pump cylinders & lever arms available in Simple Pump. A small cylinder can deliver a total amount of 3 gallons of water at the rate of 60 strokes per minute. While, the larger cylinder can deliver upto 5 gallons of water.

  • Small cylinder and long lever 0.05 pounds x depth in feet to the static water level (150 feet = 7.5 pounds of force)
  • Small cylinder and short lever 0.10 pounds x depth in feet to the static water level (150 feet = 15.0 pounds)
  • Large cylinder and long lever 0.06 pounds x depth in feet to the static water level (150 feet = 9.0 pounds of force)
  • Large cylinder and short lever 0.12 pounds x depth in feet to the static water level (150 feet = 18 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.
