Weighs less than 3 lb, making it easy to transport and install. But, it's made of tough reinforced thermoplastics with stainless steel hardware. It won't break, leak, or rust and doesn't need to be primed. Your best choice for emergency and temporary use because of its lower cost. Plus, it's easier to move than our more durable iron and stainless steel pumps.
  • Pump is 18" tall when installed. If more height is needed, you can use 3" Schedule 80 PVC to extend the base.
  • Can pump uphill or into pressurized systems. (Spout connects to 1-1/2" PVC pipe and may be adapted to other connections, including a hose bibb, using fittings available from your local hardware store.)
  • May be made freeze proof by drilling a 1/8" weep hole in drop pipe approximately four feet below ground level.
Note: Additional components are needed for installation of this pump head. See "Description" below for more information.

    LIGHTWEIGHT DEEP WELL WATER PUMP DESCRIPTION
    Works great installed alongside existing electric pumps for emergency backup use (minimum 6" ID casing required). Lightweight design for easy installation. It's rustproof, so it may actually outlast heavy, rusting cast iron pumps. Resistant to salt water and most chemicals.

    Lifts water up to 50 feet, but because handle is only 11" long, you may need to use a 36" length of 2" pipe as an extension. 2" diameter cylinder of corrosion-resistant PVC Schedule 80 pipe and pumps up to 10 gpm. Rust-proof 1-7/8" brass plunger has 3 cups to ensure long life. Made in the USA.

    To complete your installation, you just need to add the pump rod and drop pipe. Use "Schedule 80" ½" diameter PVC pipe as the pump rod. Use 2" Schedule 40 PVC as the drop pipe (Schedule 80 couplings required). You can obtain the 1/2" and 2" PVC pipe you need inexpensively from most hardwares or building supply outlets.

    Installation is fast and easy. Glue together sections of 2" drop pipe as you install. Install enough drop pipe to put the bottom end of the pipe 2-3 feet underwater. Slide brass plunger into drop pipe and attach the first section of 1/2" PVC. Then glue to enough additional sections of 1/2" pipe to equal the length of 2" pipe already installed.

    SPECIAL NOTES

    "relatively inexpensive, works well, easy to pump (50 feet). arrived before I expected. did not include any documentation or instructions, so pay attention to the "Hints" provided by Lehmans.I would add " tie a rope to the bottom of the drop pipe to hold it while you glue the pipe together." The only other down side is that the water tastes of PVC cement but that is slowly going away. I would reccomend this pump to friends."

    "Worked for a couple of months then quit. Since it is all glued together, it is going to be ugly trying to pull it to see what went wrong."

    "We're pumping from about 60' A good pump if you like to get a lot of exercise for a little water. Also, with the amount of resistance it has I can't imagine the plastic handle lasting very long. We only use it when the power goes out (fairly often here in rural Virginia) but are still going to get a real pump to replace it."

    "DO NOT BUY THIS PUMP!!! I cannot state this strongly enough. This is not a complete product, there are no installation instructions, and the device DOES NOT WORK when installed. Installation requires manufacturing a custom (unsanitary) well cap and buying hundreds of dollars of additional piping and tools. It is impossible to install in a 6" casing without disturbing the pitless adapter of the existing well. Once installed, it does not pump water, even from 40 feet, must less the claimed 200. Once the leather swelled, the piston seized in the cylinder and the pump rod broke. Attempting installation requires gluing to the pump parts, making it impossible to return. Do not allow this to happen to you!"

    Lehman's Responds:

    Galen Lehman responds: I'm so sorry this pump failed for you! If you will contact customer service, we will be glad to work with you to correct the problem. NOTE: Installation in a drilled well with a pitless adaptor (in other words, along side an existing electric pump) is always difficult. Please contact Lehman's to discuss your installation if you are trying this type of installation. However, our experience shows that it will work if the pump casing is 6" in diameter or larger.
