If a hacker would bruteforce a stolen database full of hashes and do like

Passwordlist (With your simple password) > Hash all passwordlist Rows (your algorithm) > Hash your row (database algorithm) > Match outcomes.

It wouldn’t be safe since he just undo’s your extra step.

I would just stick with a strong password on your password manager and random generate all the password you use elsewere.
