Power Out? Make Sure Your Well Pump Works
We know how helpless it feels when the power goes out and nothing around your house works.
That’s why we created the Simple Pump hand-operated water pump. We wanted a pump that would work with or without power. And we wanted a pump that was able to pump into our pressure tank so that we could use the modern water fixtures in our home.
Generators are vulnerable, expensive, and noisy!
Some suggest a generator. But in a power outage, the best backup is one that does not rely on another complex infrastructure for fuel and parts. Unlike a generator, a Simple Pump hand well pump gives you access to your water even in the worst-case scenarios.
Water Delivered By Your Power
The Simple Pump is a hand operated well pump system that utilizes a 24 inch or 36 inch handle to pump your water. Make sure you can pump your well water when you live off the power grid.
It doesn't matter why the power to your submersible pump isn't working. Your power works when you decide.
The deep well hand pump has several features that make sure your pump doesn't freeze.
Don't Wait To Lose Power
Ice storms, snowstorms, tornados, hurricanes, floods, and forest fires, routinely leave rural areas without power for days, weeks, and sometimes even months at a time.
Wells 4-Inch or Larger
Install the hand pump next to your submersible pump in wells 4-inch in diameter or larger.
We designed it as an easy DIY installation, but we have an extensive dealer network if you want to make the installation easy.

Frequently asked questions
Here are a few of the questions we frequently get asked.
The Simple Pump deep well hand pump can be installed in a well of a few feet to hundreds of feet deep. The static water level needs to be at most 325 feet deep for the Simple Pump to be able to lift water without the water being to heavy to hand lift.
Yes, a working submersible pump can be installed next to the Simple Pump deep well hand pump. In this setup, it is preferable to have the Simple Pump as a backup pump in case your submersible pump breaks down or loses power due to weather or another factor.
In the well, drop pipes for the Simple Pump and the submersible pipe are put side by side. With the Simple Pump, you may keep using the submersible pump in your current configuration. In the event that you lose electricity or your submersible pump breaks down, the Simple Pump enables you to access your well water.
The Simple Pump works in conjunction with your submersible but is a totally different technology. Because our pipe contains a number of rods connecting the lever arm at the top to the pump piston and a cylinder at the bottom, we are unable to use the submersible pipe pitless connection.
There must be a method for releasing the water in the Simple Pump drop pipe through the casing's side. Our specifically designed pitless adaptor makes it possible to pump from the top while channeling the water to the pitless piping.
Once the pipe has been positioned sideways outside the well casing, it is simple to connect it to the pipe coming from the submersible at a T junction so that one pipe runs beneath your house. The running pump cannot pump water down the other branch to the other pump because each branch of the T contains a one-way check valve.
The Simple Pump Deep well pump system's largest part measures roughly 1.75′ inches in outer diameter.
The Simple Pump can be installed in a well casing with an internal diameter of 2 inches as a standalone application.
In the vast majority of wells 4 inches or larger, the Simple Pump can be installed alongside an existing submersible pump.
Yes, even from a deep well, the Simple Pump deep well hand well pump can pump water into your home's pressure tank.
The Simple Pump hand pump is designed and made to be sturdy and capable of manually pumping water into your pressure tank. The Simple Pump is machined from a stainless steel billet to provide a lightweight and sturdy pump capable of this pumping performance. The weight of the pump system is crucial to the amount of leverage and strength necessary to hand pump into a pressure tank.
The Simple Pump must be configured to pump into pressure tanks and other pressure connections, and the pressure gauge/check valve combination prevents pressure push-back.
