According to a recent study, more than 15 million households here in the United States use wells as a source for their drinking water. For these wells to supply water to the household, a well pump has to be installed. When installed, a well pump obviously draws water from the ground and then supplies it to the house. Typically, the system works by drawing the water from the ground to storage tanks, where it is pressurized, and stored until it is needed. For the well pump to work effectively, it is important to choose the right well pump to purchase.
What’s the Depth of the Well?
Before buying a well pump, it is important to know the depth of the current well you have. Simply ask whoever installed it for their report, or ask the drilling company to tell you. The depth of the water will guide you as to the type of pump to buy or the type of pump that you need to buy. Well pumps are designed to work with a certain depth. When the depth is more than what the pump can carry, water will not come up.
What’s the Diameter of the Well?
The diameter of the well is just as important and also determines the type of pump to buy. A well without a casing is a shallow well. There are well casings that are two inches and require extra accessories in addition to a convertible jet well pump. If the casing of your well is four inches or more, you have the options of choosing either a jet well pump or a deep well submersible pump, depending on the depth of your well and depending, obviously on your budget.
Some Popular Pump Types
There are basically three well pumps available — the shallow well pumps, deep well pumps, and submersible pumps. For wells with less than 25 inches of depth, the required pump is the shallow well pump. Use the deep well jet pumps for wells with depths of 25–110 inches. Lastly, the submersible pump is best suited for well depths of 25–400 inches.
In addition to pump types, you should also have a general idea of the water usage for the household. An ideal 3 to 4-bedroom house typically uses 8–12 Gallons per Minute (GPM). To determine the rate of GPM in your household, simply add up all the water fixtures in the house including Showers, Faucets, Washing Machines, etc. Water Pump Dubai can provide you with a well pump suited for your home, as well as offer expert installation and repair of well pumps.
