Shallow well pumps are meant for pumping water from sources less than 25 feet of static water level.
Deep well pumps have been designed to lift water from several hundred feet below ground.
Some hand-powered well pumps can use the existing infrastructure of your powered well pump and are installed quickly without additional help.
Others may require additional help, drilling, or components to complete the installation.
The majority of people would classify "moderate effort" as weighing between 12 and 18 pounds.
Around the 150-foot water mark, Bison Pumps depart the "moderate" range.
At the limit of the 325-foot water level, the Simple Pump is still inside the "moderate" pumping difficulty range.
Make sure your pumping is easy when you need to get your water.

The recovery rate of a well is how slowly the water levels rise after pumping.
Pumping depth is the vertical distance, in feet, between the pump system's pump cylinder and the ground level.
The Submersible Pump Set Position is the distance between the submersible pump position in the well and the ground.
