Can I cut my own PVC piping?

When purchasing a Simple Pump Deep Well hand pump or a Simple Pump Motorized Well Pump Kit, we provide everything that is needed for the pump to work which includes the drop pipes that go in your well. Please note, if you cut the drop pipes, the Simple Pump Warranty would become void — since we cannot warranty a mechanism that is dependent on the unknown quality and precision of someone else’s cutting and threading.

While, in theory, PVC purchased from someone other than Simple Pump can be cut and used in a well pump. Our drop pipe kits are designed with years of experience and are manufactured with custom fittings to hold together with stainless steel couplers and rod guides to ensure the pump rod is in the correct location for the Simple Pump to work efficiently.
