The Bison Pumps Standard Deep Well Pump System is a Side-By-Side system that installs in the same well casing as your electric submersible pump system. It is a Freeze Proof pump system that can deliver you with Pressurized Backup Water when used in conjunction with the Pressurizing System. This provides you with water inside your home accessible to any water feature such as a toilet or sink! It can lift water from 250 feet deep using the standard handle or up to 300 feet with the addition of the Heavy Duty Pump Head option. The Standard Deep Well Pump System is recommended when there is sufficient space inside the well casing and the water from an electric submersible pump system exits underground.

Drop Pipe and Rod

Each Bison Pumps Side-By-Side Standard Deep Well Pump System comes with enough eight (8) foot sections of Drop Pipe and Rod to reach approximately 20 feet below the static water level. This depth allows for fluctuations in the water table and ensures that the cylinder will be below the water surface. The size of the Drop Pipe is typically 1 1/4” but we do offer and recommend 1” for certain applications. This would be where inside casing space availability is a concern or the static water level exceeds 160 feet.

Note that the deeper the static water level is, the more drop pipe will be required. This directly impacts the cost and design of the system. This is why a fixed cost for a pump system cannot be provided. Each pump system is unique to the customer’s well specifics.


One appropriately sized cylinder is included in a Side-By-Side Standard Deep Well Pump System. In a Lift Pump system, like the Side-By-Side Standard, the cylinder is what lifts the water. This is the device that creates the vacuum to draw water into the water inlet and then uses its piston assembly to lift the water up the drop pipe. In a Side-By-Side application, the size of the cylinder is determined by space available inside the well casing and the static water level. We use this Standard Cylinder Selection Chart to determine the appropriate size for each customer’s situation.
