If you live in a rural area without access to a municipal water supply, a well pump is essential for bringing water from an underground well to your home’s plumbing system. However, with so many different types of well pumps available, choosing the right one for your needs can seem daunting. When deciding which pump to purchase, it’s important to consider factors such as the depth of your well, the volume of water you need, and your power source. Here are some important items to keep in mind:

Submersible Pumps

Submersible pumps are one of the most common types of well pumps, and they’re designed to be placed directly in your well. These pumps can be used for deep wells and have a long life expectancy. Submersible pumps are quiet and efficient but can be more difficult to repair and replace because they are underground.

Jet Pumps

Jet pumps, on the other hand, are located above ground and are typically used for shallow wells. They use suction to draw water from the well and can be less expensive than submersible pumps. Jet pumps are also easier to repair because they are located above ground, but they tend to be less efficient and have a shorter lifespan than submersible pumps.

Constant Pressure System

If you have a high volume of water needs or a deep well, a constant pressure system may be the best choice for you. These systems use a submersible well pump and a pressure tank to maintain constant water pressure, regardless of the amount of water being used in your home. They also tend to be more energy-efficient than jet pumps.

Booster Pump System

Are you dealing with a well that’s not yielding enough water or needing more storage space? Is your water consumption increasing? Utilizing a booster pump system can help solve these issues. This system enhances your water pressure and flow rate, or even both. When used with storage tanks, it effectively makes up for wells that aren’t producing sufficient water.
