If you’re planning pump installation for your well, you’ll have to make sure it’ll have enough power and a capacity to accommodate your needs. Submersible pumps and a jet pumps are common choices and can be used to create effective water systems. Each design has its strengths and weaknesses, so here’s what you need to know to distinguish between the two.
The submersible pump is installed near the bottom of your well. It uses existing water pressure at its current depth to propel water up the pipe and into your home. It’s self-primed to use the water surrounding it, making it convenient to start. Submersible pumps also run efficiently and quietly, allowing you to save money on electricity. While it’s difficult to access and repair than a jet pump, submersible pumps require little maintenance, meaning issues doesn’t come up often.
The jet pump is installed above ground and uses an impeller and diffuser to pull water from the well and pump into your pipes. They come in a range of styles to fit shallow or deep wells, and accommodate low, medium, or high yields. Jet pumps can also be mounted horizontally or vertically, making them extremely versatile. They’re a cost-effective option and are easy to access for pump repair should an issue arise after pump installation.
