AJ Pumps and Water Treatment sells, installs, and services electric deep well submersible water pumps. If you need to get water from your well to your home, ask us about Goulds submersible pumps, which are built to withstand all kinds of wear and tear.
They are hermetically sealed and meant to be fully submerged in water. Even though they are designed to eliminate noise during operation and they never have to be primed (since they are submerged), they are extremely lightweight.
How Do Submersible Water Pumps Work?
Water is pulled into submersible water pumps through the intake and then pushed through the diffuser and up to the surface by the centrifugal force of the impeller or rotor. You can opt for different moto-precision molded impellers and diffusers.
The great thing about submersible pumps is that they are very efficient and don’t use a lot of energy. The water pressure is constant with no spiking, so cavitation (bubbles) are minimized. The water is pumped from your well to a pressurized water tank in the home, so you always have water when you need it.
How to Choose A Submersible Pump
Submersible water pumps can be utilized for both residential and commercial purposes and range in size from 2-inch to 10-inches. They must be fully submerged since the water helps to keep the pump cool. If not fully immersed in water, they can soon overheat.
Submersible water pumps can be utilized for most domestic water sources including for wells, reservoirs, lakes, etc. They are designed for higher pressure and flow rate.
Our highly experienced pump technicians can help you choose the correct submersible pump for your specific purposes. There are many different horsepower and voltages available, as well as various ways to control submersible pumps; variable speed, pressure switch system, etc.
We will also look at:
- Well depth
- Horsepower of the pump
- Ensuring your piping, pressure relief valves, and safety controls can handle the water pressure
- Matching the pump to the safe flow rate of the well (well yield)
