I was at a party describing our off grid dream when one of the men piped up and said “I know a product you just have to check out”. Hence our introduction to “the Simple Pump”.

We’ve read every part of the Simple Pump website and are very excited to have been introduced to this pumping system that will work very well for our off the grid clean water requirements.

Key Reasons We Like It:

  • The pump can operate on a single solar panel (most competitors products require more power and therefore more panels)
  • It has a hand pumping option.
  • There are choices of systems and none are overwhelming to understand.

It’s important to note that this is not a ‘on demand’ pump. The water spurts out as opposed to flowing continuously like the tap in your house.

It works best if it’s used to keep a cistern full, which, if the cistern is above the house, can make a gravity fed water system possible.

Here is a video that shows how to install the simple pump. You can decide for yourself if you agree that it is a very practical and cost-effective off the grid water pumping solution.

You also need to understand that Simple Pump simply pumps. It is not a water purification system, but there are excellent solutions to the problem of water purification available.

Here is a purification system that we like. It has four and a half stars and excellent reviews.
