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.
Not to mention the aging of the power grid, which is prone to random breakdown.
If you have your own well, an ultra-reliable hand pump that doesn’t rely on the grid is the best piece of mind you can buy — No Matter What.
And if you go for MOTORIZED Simple Pump, you still have the best backup of all. Our motors can be converted back into a hand pump in about 15 minutes. No other motorized pump on the planet offers this capability.
GENERATORS ARE VULNERABLE, EXPENSIVE, AND NOISY
Some suggest a generator. But in a grid-down situation, the best backup is one that DOES NOT RELY ON another complex infrastructure for fuel and parts. Unlike a generator, a Simple Pump gives you access to your water even in the worst-case scenarios.
And a generator powerful enough to run your submersible will cost as much or more than a Simple Pump.
You can do get by without your lights or dishwasher. But you MUST have water.
