Can the Simple Pump be installed on my buried tank?

“I have a 550-gallon tank buried underground, not a well, would I be able to use your pump for this type of installation?”

Yes. You would be able to use our pump for this type of installation.

To make our pump work with an underground tank, it needs to anchor to a (cylindrical) well casing (2, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 inches diameter). Specifically, the pump head is attached to the cap, and the cap is affixed to a casing.

The well casing must be vertical from the top (ground level) to the tank, terminating at the top of the tank, or within it. The series of lift rods connecting the top (pump head) to the bottom (pump cylinder) would extend into the tank, terminating very near its bottom, and ending with the pump cylinder.
