The rugged, but lightweight HDPE, bottle makes it great to reduce weight while hiking.

The flip top cap also fits a standard hard bottle for the times when you prefer those. You can also splice this filter directly in-line on your drink tube of your hydration bladder, attach a drink tube and drink directly from a water source or use it in a gravity feed system for group applications.

With 98% of the water flow passing through the hollow fiber membranes, it is a very fast flowing filter.

The design of the filter allows you to back wash it with the enclosed syringe and reuse it over and over again, thus virtually making this the last filter you will ever need to buy as long as you follow the care and use instructions.

Berkey™ Water Filtration systems

Black Berkey™ Filters are used in the Berkey Light ™

Berkey™ Water Filtration Systems are one of the best water filtration systems used worldwide for normal or hostile filtration environments to provide the most delicious, sparkling clean water possible…

Berkey water filter

The Berkey Light™ can be used to filter non-potable or untreated water. Electricity and water pressure are not required.

The Berkey Light™ is flexible and adaptable to your water filtration needs. The Berkey Light™ is reliable, easy to use in most any environment.

Berkey Light's™ unique design combines the age-old process of micro-porous filtration coupled with modem state-of-the-art technology and the highest quality materials to bring you the finest water filtration System available anywhere.

To use, water is poured into the upper chamber. Gravity draws this water through the exclusive Black Berkey™ filter elements. Contaminants are captured on and within the micro-porous filter element and are separated from the water. Each durable and efficient elements can be cleaned with a toothbrush and last for up to 2,000 gallons. What's more, the unique Black Berkey™ filter elements are self -sterilizing. The filtered water then collects in the lower chamber where it can be drawn through the spigot.

Often it is desirable to refill the upper chamber while some of the water from the previous cycle remains in the lower chamber. With non transparent or opaque systems the upper chamber must be removed from the lower chamber. This is inconvenient and messy because water continues to drip from the filter elements as the user checks for water levels in the lower chamber. This is especially difficult in no or low light conditions. If the user does not check the water level there is a risk that the upper chamber will be overfilled and later cause the lower chamber to overflow. The Berkey Light™ solves this problem with its transparent design. The user is able to see the water level in both chambers at all times.

The system is joined together during use allowing the Berkey Light™ to be moved while it is filtering. This can be important when the Berkey Light™ is used in an area for food preparation and later needed in a dining area. The system can also be disjoined for cleaning, maintenance and transport etc.

Simple Hand Water Pump

Simple Hand Powered Water Pump

Simple Pump™ is a hand water pump that works as a reliable backup right beside your existing submersible well pump. As a hand water pump, Simple Pump™ delivers up to 5 gallons per minute, and water comes out of your household spigot at normal pressure. With such strong water flow, use Simple Pump™ as a primary water pump system for non-electrical wells too.

We all know power outages are inconvenient. But they do more than shut off the TV and lights. If you're on an electrical well system, a power outage cuts off your water supply too.

That's when many turn to manual water pumps...

Simple Pump™ is a hand water pump that works as a reliable backup right beside your existing submersible well pump. So you can still drink clean water, take showers, and flush toilets - without electricity.

Simple Pump™ delivers up to 5 gallons per minute, and water comes out of your household spigot at normal pressure. It works just as effectively in shallow and deep wells.

With such strong water flow, use Simple Pump™ as a primary water pump system for non-electrical wells too.

A manual water pump made... Simple

Easy to use - when pumping manually, the unique lever arm pump only takes 10 lbs. of force to pump 3 gallons per minute from 100' - even uphill. It's so effortless, even a child can do it!

Easy to install - installs in less than 2 hours using common tools.

Convenient - designed for kids and adults to safely grip the smooth lever arm handle.

Safe - lever arm removes from the pump when not in use. So children aren't tempted to play with it.

Tamper-resistant - in just 5 minutes, you can remove the lever arm and related linkage so the pump stands only 5" above the ground. In this "low-mode," your manual water pump won't stand out from your landscaping or attract vandals.

A hand water pump made... Durable

Quality materials - Simple Pump™ is made completely from lead-free, CNC-machined stainless steel and aluminum components. All components are Safe Drinking Water Act compliant. The pump rods are high tensile fiberglass and the drop pipe is Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) schedule 80.

Precision-machining - all components are machined in aerospace-class manufacturing plants. This assures your hand pump will work when you need it.

Unmatched durability - designed to last at least 50 years, it could be the only manual water pump you'll ever buy!

Frost proof - the self-priming pump keeps your water flowing even when the ground is frozen.

5-year warranty - in case of a defective component, just send us the part and we'll replace and ship it to you for free anywhere in the continental USA. *(please see FAQs for more details)

A lever water pump made... Affordable

Quality materials, simple design (reduces long-term wear) and precise manufacturing.

Simple Pump™ can easily be the only hand water pump you'll ever need. Based on the average pump kit cost, you can have peace of mind for only $20 a year. That's less than the cost of an annual magazine subscription!

Pricing Information

Click here for current pricing information

Your price will depend on the depth of your well and the static level of your water. We will need the diameter of the well casing and where the pipes and electric lines come out of it ( top or side). This is important. Have this information ready for correct pricing.



Hand Water Pumps

 

Produce Up to 2200 gallons/day

When you need a water pump for larger jobs, just convert your Simple Pump™ manual water pump into a motorized water pump. Our 1/5 HP gearmotor attachment quickly bolts on to operate reliably in any climate. Then you'll be able to pump up to 2200 gallons/day! As a motorized water pump, Simple Pump™ is tough enough to safely move contaminated water, highly impacted ground water, and water with other debris.

Q. "How deep can Simple Pump™ pump from?"

A. Because of Simple Pump's™ mechanical lever arm design, the average person can easily pump from depths up to 200 feet. We estimate that the maximum effective pumping depth is approximately 350 feet due to accumulated sucker rod stretch. Click here for Simple Pump™ power options.

[ back ]


Q. "How much water does it pump?"

A. Pumping rates from the Simple Pump™ vary directly with the frequency and length of strokes of the lever arm. In normal operation, Simple Pump™ delivers up to 5 gallons per minute.

[ back ]


Q. "Will I have to take out my existing electric submersible pump to install the Simple Pump™?"

A. In most applications, the Simple Pump™ will readily fit in your existing domestic well without removing or disrupting your existing pump and motor.

NOTE: There are 3 pump installation configurations that are problematic for the normal homeowner and may require the assistance of a pump installer to complete the installation:

  1. When the existing pump discharge pipe protrudes from the top of the well cap. In this configuration, the existing submersible pump and discharge piping is entirely supported by the well cap. The pump and string of discharge piping, depending on the pump's depth setting, can be very heavy requiring mechanical assistance to lift the assembly. In this instance, contact a qualified pump installer for assistance.

  2. Some deeper submersible pumps were installed using what are commonly referred to as "torque arrestors" or "centering guides". These fittings act to keep the discharge piping from the submersible pump in the center of the well and reduce the twisting effect, or torque, caused by the pump turning on and off. It is difficult to determine if an existing pump assembly is equipped with a torque arrestor or arrestors. Under normal applications, the drop pipe assemblies freely slide into the well casing. During your Simple Pump™ installation, if you have difficulty sliding the drop pipe into the well, there may be a torque arrestor in place that the Simple Pump™ is hitting. If you encounter this condition, carefully remove the Simple Pump™ assembly from the well casing and contact a qualified pump installer for assistance. The Simple Pump™ will still fit, but will require special alignment of the drop pipe assemblies to fit through openings in the torque arrestor(s).

  3. Another problem arises with small diameter wells (4" and smaller) or well casings that are not vertically aligned. The size of the pump's discharge piping relative to the well's casing diameter will determine the ability to easily install the Simple Pump™ assembly. The largest diameter of any of the Simple Pump™ components is 1 5/8" and will normally fit beside the pump's discharge piping in a 4" diameter well. If, during the installation process, you encounter difficulty or binding as the drop pipes are sliding into place, you may need to contact a qualified pump installer to provide assistance.

Q. "Can I install it myself?"

A. If you possess average mechanical ability and are somewhat familiar with the installation of routine plumbing or irrigation piping, you can easily install Simple Pump™ within 2 hours. You'll only need minor assistance. The second time you install a Simple Pump™ system (helping a friend or neighbor) you will be able to complete it within an hour.

If you are not quite that adept in mechanical applications, we strongly recommend that you contact a qualified pump installer or licensed plumbing contractor to assist you.

Q. "What parts will wear out?"

A. Simple Pump™ is constructed of durable materials that will not easily wear out. The pump assembly, pump head, pump cylinder, and check valves are all stainless steel. The pump rods are aerospace-quality fiberglass with fused stainless steel ends. And the drop pipe is Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Schedule 80. Finally, the pump's lever handle assembly is solid, aircraft-grade T6061 aluminum.

There are a series of 3 working u-cup seals at various locations in the pump assembly. These are made of a durable rubber product referred to as "Buna-N". If ever needed, replacement u-cup seals can be purchased directly from Simple Pump™.

Q. "How hard is it to pump water?"

A. With the Simple Pump™, pumping water from normal depths is easy. The lever handle that is standard equipment with our pump system works on common leverage principles and provides a leverage ratio of 3.3:1. The actual force required is dependent on the total length of drop pipe assembly. For a standard installation of 100 feet, it takes approximately 10 pounds of downward force - a child can easily do this. At 200 feet, it takes approximately 13 pounds of downward force.

Q. "What are Simple Pumps™ made of?"

A. Components of the Simple Pump™ system are manufactured from stainless steel, aircraft-grade fiberglass, and aluminum. The pump assembly, pump head, pump cylinder and check valves are all stainless steel. The pump rods are aerospace-quality fiberglass with fused stainless steel ends. The drop pipe is Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Schedule 80. And the pump's lever handle assembly is solid aircraft-grade aluminum.

Q. "What size well does Simple Pump™ fit in?"

A. The largest component of the Simple Pump™ system is approximately 1 5/8" OD. As a stand-alone application, the Simple Pump™ can be installed in a 2" diameter well casing. Usually, the Simple Pump™ can be installed in domestic wells with nominal diameters in excess of 4" without removing the existing submersible pump or its discharge piping.

Q. "How long does it take to install?"

A. Simple Pump™ is designed for a person with average mechanical ability to easily install. You'll only need minor assistance. A typical installation can easily be completed within two hours without any special tools. After installation, you can help your neighbors with theirs and it will take less than one hour per installation.

Q. "How well does Simple Pump™ work in freezing temperatures?"

A. The Simple Pump was designed similar to a non-freeze hydrant and allows the upper column of water to bleed off to a depth below the frost line. This keeps the pump from freezing. We have many pumps operating 24/7 without difficulty in high-wind, freezing temperatures reaching -17°F (-27°C). Proper precautions should be taken each fall to ensure that the weep hole has not become obstructed.

Q. "How long have you been in this business?"

A. The Simple Pump™ Company was established in 1999. The design is the direct result of collaborative efforts between two engineers. One of the designers is a mechanical engineer who has been involved in the design and manufacturing of large scale mechanical equipment for nearly 25 years. He owns and operates one of the machine shops that produce some of the pump components. Another mechanical engineer with over 25 years of experience, owns and operates Simple Pump™ company on a day-to-day basis.

Q. "How do you ship international orders?"

A. We use the respected international carrier or freight forwarder that works best in your area. This includes USPS, FedEx, UPS, DHL and Vantage Point Services. For international orders, the sucker rods can be shipped in shorter lengths.

Q. "Is there any lead in the Simple Pump™?"

A. The pump assembly and its component parts are manufactured from lead-free materials and are Safe Drinking Water Act compliant. Simple Pump™ components are also in compliance with the even more stringent California proposition 65 requirements.

Q. "How do I determine the depth to groundwater or static water level?"

A. Depth to groundwater is difficult to accurately determine without the benefit of a well sounding device. You can approximate the depth to groundwater from the well driller's drilling log when the well was initially drilled. If you don't have this information, contact a local well driller or practicing engineer to have the water depth confirmed by sounding or other measurement technique.

Q. "What is the difference between well depth, groundwater depth, or static water level?"

A. Well depth is defined as the full depth that the well was drilled or cased. "Depth to groundwater" and "static water level" are synonymous phrases and define the depth or distance from the top of the well to the level of water within the well. This distinction is important because the static water level is the depth from which water is pumped irrespective of the depth that the pump is set. We normally recommend, accommodating natural groundwater level decline, that Simple Pump™ be installed to a depth at least 27 feet below the static water level.

Q. "Can the pump really develop enough pressure to fill my pressure tank?"

A. Yes. Simple Pump™ has been manufactured to very stringent tolerances, which lets the pump develop sufficient pressure to fill a residential pressure or bladder tank.

Q. "How do I determine the depth to groundwater or static water level?"

A. Depth to groundwater is difficult to accurately determine without the benefit of a well sounding device. You can approximate the depth to groundwater from the well driller's drilling log when the well was initially drilled. If you don't have this information, contact a local well driller or practicing engineer to have the water depth confirmed by sounding or other measurement technique.

NOTE: If you want to determine your static water level yourself, you'll need: a small fishing weight, a 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" diameter bobber, several feet of a lightweight fishing line or kite string.

Instructions:

  1. Attach the weight to the end of the line or string. Affix the bobber 1 inch above the weight.
  2. Remove the well cap and lower the weighted end with bobber into the well casing.
  3. When the bobber reaches the water level, the line will go limp. You'll feel a slack in the line.
  4. At the point where you feel the slack, mark the line at the top edge of the casing (you can tie a small knot in the line, use tape or a marker)
  5. Pull the line back up from the casing. Measure the length of the line from the bobber to the marked line. This is your static water level.

*We didn’t actually run a million gallons through the filter, because that's a lot of water... but we could have.

It is what makes the Sawyer water filters and purifiers the best on the market. They can be backwashed. So let’s say that you take your filter on a 3 month trip with you. You can put an end to all your water worries by buying a Sawyer Water Filter or Purifier.

Backwashing is not required often unless you are filtering very turbid water. Backwashing is as simple as reversing the filter flow with clean water. Forcing the clean water back through the filter flushes out all of the contaminants and only takes a few seconds. If you are accustomed to a ceramic filter, the cleaning ratio is approximately 20:1. In other words, by the 20th time you would have cleaned a ceramic filter, it would be time to backwash this filter for the first time. NO REPLACEMENT FILTERS OR CARTRIDGES ARE NECESSARY. We trust you will thoroughly enjoy the ease and extra protection this proven next generation technology offers you.
