How deep should I install my pump?
It is not necessary to install your emergency pump as low as your electric pump.
Most wells have the electric pump set at 20 to 70 feet below the water level.
The Simple pump can be installed safely at 36 to feet below the water level.
The pumping effort is determined by the water level and not the pump level. Additionally,
it is unlikely that the electric pump would be used at the same time as the Simple
Pump. Therefore the water level will not be drawn down when the hand pump is being
used. If you intend to use the hand pump at the same time that your electric is
being operated, you will need to set the Simple submersible pump cylinder at a
depth that the water level will not go below. The company last serviced or drilled
your original well should be able to recommend a depth.
is a a Schematic Diagram showing how you can easily pipe the outlet of the Simple
Pump to the outlet of the Simple Pump into your house pressure system. The hand
pump can deliver pressure to your home pressure tank. If you plan to connect to
your house pressure system, get our ready to go check valve/gauge assembly.
Each kit includes 9 feet of 1" schedule 120 PVC ,
threaded on each end: 9 feet of 80,000 psi fiberglass rod with stainless steel
ends forming the "sucker rod"; and a delrin rod guide. The sections
assemble very easily. Lowering 100 feet with a pump takes about 30 to 45 minutes.
Each 9 foot section weighs about 5 pounds. 100 feet with a pump will weigh about
The Simple Pump kit (model 100L) comes complete
with all necessary installation components: submersible stainless steel pump cylinder
(shown in picture above),2", 4", 5", 6", 7"or 8" well-casing
cover with clamp flanges, and an upper spigot assembly (shown above). The Drop
pipe kit (model 109DP) includes a 1" schedule 120 PVC with coupling, delrin
rod guide, and one 80,000 psi fiberglass pump rod with integral stainless steel
fittings. Each drop pipe kit is sold as a 9' length kit,
U.P.S. limits packages to 9' in length therefore we offer the drop pipe kits in
9' maximum and also in 27" and 54". Example: If an installation requires the pump to be at 60', then seven
9' kits or kits are required. (63') PRICES
NO OTHER HAND PUMP HAS THIS CAPABILITY
Adapter Kit (For ultimate freeze protection):
A pitless adapter is commonly used on AC pumps for delivering water through the
well casing at a level below the freeze line - usually about 4'. The Mfr. modified
a high quality 1" bronze pitless adapter to include a 5/8" diameter
chrome shaft which passes through a seal and guide. Their standard sucker rod
is then attached to the bottom of the 5/8" shaft, along with their standard
drop pipe. When this system is used, all water is directed through the pitless
adapter and through the well casing below ground, where it can be piped to your
house. The kit includes a 1" bronze pitless adapter with the 5/8" sealed
shaft. Below it is a short section of pipe to accommodate connecting back to our
standard drop pipe and sucker rods. To connect the pump head rod to the pitless
adapter rod, a 6 foot section of 3/8" stainless steel all-thread is provided.
Depending on the distance between the pitless adapter and the top of the well
casing, the rod is cut to fit. Detailed instructions are included with the kit.
It can be used with any model of Simple Pump, both hand and motorized. Here
is a a schematic diagram of a motorized pitless system.
