For those of us who live in rural regions, well pumps are used to deliver water to home water systems. Whereas cities have an underground network of pipes that transport water to each home, this network doesn’t always apply once you move out to the country. There is not a vast grid supplying water in many remote areas. Each home or cabin in these areas has an electromechanical system to transport water from the well to the home, and at the heart of this system is a well pump. When talking about well pumps, there are three basic types: centrifugal, jet, and submersible.
Before we can talk about each pump in detail, it’s good to get an overview on how this system works. Well pumps use suction and pressure to bring water up from a well. Residential well pumps typically have less than one horsepower of energy while commercial pumps can work together with other pumps to supply water to an entire neighborhood.
While well pumps can supply water to systems such as your home drinking water, it’s important to install filters on the line if the water is going to be used for consumption. Underground well water is usually pure but contaminants may enter the pipe network and cause unsafe drinking water. Filters will help neutralize bacteria and give you peace of mind whenever you turn on the tap.
The amount of use you plan to give your well pump will tell you the size and relative power pump you need. If you need your pump to run a garden hose, a small pump will do. If you plan on supplying water for your whole home, plan out the maximum daily water uptake and purchase a pump that can handle that many gallons per hour. For instance, a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home will use approximately 14 gallons/ minute, the equivalent of 840 gallons/ hour. You’ll need to make sure your well pump can handle this maximum amount.
These pumps are best used to draw water from deep wells.
