Manufacturing the Goods of Tomorrow

Hello, my name is Eric and this is my industrial and manufacturing blog. So many people seem to sit around using amazing products without stopping to think about where they came from. I know this because I used to be one of those people. However, all that changed when I visited my friend Steve. He is the general manager of a company which produces all kinds of cool goods. Steve invited me to his factory and production plant and I spent a few days there hanging out and learning all kinds of cool stuff. Since then I have been learning all I can about this topic.

Submersible Bore Pump Versus a Jet Pump: Which Is Right for Your Well?

If you are putting a well near your home, you have to choose the right pump. Two of the main options are submersible bore pumps and water jet pumps. To help you decide between these two options, here are some ideas you need to consider:

Position

If you want the pump to be located on the ground level of your home, in the basement or in any other location that is above the base of the well, you need a jet pump. These pumps draw the water up and out of the well. In contrast, a submersible pump, as suggested by the name, sits inside your well, and it pushes water out of the well and through the pipes leading into your home.

If you don't have room in your home for a pump, you may want to go with a submersible bore pump. In contrast, if you want the pump in an area where it's easily accessible for maintenance and repairs, you may want a jet pump.

The Depth of Your Well

The depth of you well also has an impact on the pump you need to select. Jet pumps can work for shallow wells and medium depth wells. Note that you typically need a different jet pump for each of these situations. As a general rule of thumb, submersible pumps tend to be better for very deep wells.

To ensure you are getting the right type of pump, you may want to measure the depth of your well. The easiest way is to tie a rock or a weight onto a string. Then, drop that into the well until it reaches the bottom. Mark the string, pull it out and measure it. Then, compare that measurement to the pump depths specified by various pump manufacturers.  

Presence of a Pressure Tank

Do you want a pressure tank? A pressure tank stores water that has been pumped out of your well, and it creates extra pressure in the water using compressed air. If you get a jet pump, you have to also get a pressure tank, but this tank is optional with a submersible pump. If you don't have room for a pressure tank or if you prefer less water pressure for any reason, you may also want to go with a submersible pump with no tank.
