What are Simple Pumps™ made of?"

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.

What parts will wear out?

There are 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.

Is there any lead in the Simple Pump?

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.
