How A Water Well Pump Works

If you are like the typical homeowner who lives in a city or town, you probably give very little thought to how much water you and your family use on a daily basis, whether it is for drinking, bathing, washing dishes, watering plants, or anything else that you need to do with water. Because the water is automatically provided to you through the simple action of turning on the tap, it is easy to forget that it is important to try to conserve this important resource. However, if you move into a more rural area and you are in charge of keeping track of your water usage because you have a certain amount of rights to a specific nearby well, then water usage becomes very important to keep track of. Even if you have your very own well and all of the water rights to it, you suddenly become more aware of your water usage than you would be if the water belonged to the city. Whether you currently have your own well or you are planning to hire a Wells in Noblesville Company to help you drill a well, it is important that you know how the different parts of your well work, especially the pump.

There are typically two different types of pumps that are put into wells in Noblesville; submersible pumps and jet pumps. The type that you choose for your well should be based on a variety of factors, including how deep your well is, how much pumping capacity you need, and how much you can afford to spend. A good Wells in Noblesville company should be able to help you decide which type of pump will work best for your particular needs and will help you to properly install the pump of your choosing, however, keep in mind that a jet pump is best used in shallow wells and submersible pumps are best used in deeper wells.

Jet pumps are typically mounted somewhere above the well, and homeowners often put them in a well house or somewhere inside their home. A jet pump works by using suction (from atmospheric pressure) to force the water up out of the well. A submersible pump on the other hand, typically fits inside the casing of the well and pushes the water up from the well through the plumbing.
