Need Pump Repairs? It Might Be Time for a Jet Pump, Bremerton, Washington

There are many mechanical components that go into a household water well, all of which play a crucial role in helping you enjoy a reliable supply of water. But if you find yourself scheduling pump repairs more often than you’d like, it’s likely time to replace your old, outdated system. One of the best replacement options available today is a jet pump. Here is what you should know about this invaluable addition.

How Does a Jet Pump Work?

pump repairJet pumps bring water into the home by using atmospheric pressure to create powerful suction. The concept is similar to drinking through a straw. As the well system’s motor drives the impeller, water is moved through the constricted “jet.” 

As water passes through this area, the constriction speeds up the movement of the water while creating a vacuum that draws out additional H2O. This then works in conjunction with a Venturi tube that slows the water and increases pressure to ensure reliable delivery of water to the home.

Where Can a Jet Pump Be Used?

Jet pumps are typically used in shallow wells that are less than 25 feet deep. However, deep well jet pumps are also available, using extended tailpipes to lift water from depths of up to 100 feet. When an even deeper well is required, however, a submersible pump will typically be the better option. Using the wrong pump will likely result in frequent maintenance calls for pump repair and poor water delivery.
