The Simple Pump hand well pump is made from lead-free, stainless steel, and aluminum components. 

NOTE: The aluminum is never in contact with water.

All components are Safe Drinking Water Act compliant.

Simple Pump is designed with very few points of wear: the u-cup seals on the piston and the rod seals in the pump head.
