Finding The Best Well Pump For Your Home
You understand that turning a light switch on and off will make the lights do the same; that flushing a toilet will move waste to your sewer lines; to get water, all you must do is turn on the faucet.
These are all simple premises that have complex underlying workings. In the case of your home’s water, there is likely a well pump that is responsible for bringing water to your home.
We’re going to take a quick look at some of the market’s top-rated well pumps because what is best for one home may not be best for the next. Continue reading to find out about which well pump is ideal for your home!
Shallow Pump: Red Lion PWJet50
The Red Lion PWJet50 pump is ideal for depths up to 25 feet. These systems are made of cast iron, making them durable and long-lasting.
The Red Lion PWJet50 will pump out 7 gallons per minute, making it ideal for most rural homes and cabins. Basically, you get a lot of bang for your buck, especially if your home is a bit smaller and you don’t require water for multiple rooms at once.
Shallow well pumps generally work once they are primed with water and use suction to bring the water from the well to the surface
Convertible Well Pumps: Hallmark Industries MA
Convertible well pumps allow for the homeowner to transition between shallow and deep well water pumping. The Hallmark Industries MA is constructed in a way that is as durable and long-lasting as the shallow pump but has the added benefit of being useful in deep well situations.
There are three different versions of this pump that range from half of a horsepower to 1 HP. When using a half horsepower unit, you will be able to see use up to 49 feet deep and have 10 GPM produced–jumping to the 1 HP, you will have suction functioning up to 82 feet and 14 GPM.
Because these pumps are convertible, you can also use them for shallow wells, up to 25 feet.
What is a Deep Well Pump?
Deep wells can be defined as any water well that goes deeper than 25 feet. Shallow well pumps can only be of use up to 25 feet in the ground, so this is where deep well pumps will be of use.
These systems work similarly to shallow well pumps in that they need to be primed with water before use and use suction to bring well water to the surface. However, deep well pumps can actually pump water as deep as 300 feet from the earth.
