The Simple Hand Pump and Bison Hand Pump are the best deep-well hand pumps, according to Resilient Design. These pumps may be used alone or in combination with electric pumps.
The Simple Hand Pump accommodates wells up to 300 feet deep. It has an optional solar component and is easier to operate than many comparable models, according to the manufacturer. The Simple Hand Pump attaches to most wells without professional installation.
The Bison Hand Pump is self-priming and does not require regular maintenance. Bison offers models for deep residential and commercial wells. The company also manufactures a version for shallow wells.
