Different Types Of Well Pump Technologies

Pumping devices used in wells can be categorized according to the pumping technology they work with. Many houses and small to medium scale industries in Hungary use pumping devices to get the necessary water supply they need. But they often fail to understand the mechanism of action which differentiates each type. The following are some of the most common categories found in the market. If you wish to obtain any of the following, they would be easily accessible through any Grundfos pumps dealer in Hungary.

  • Submersible type – can be used in shallow and deep wells and also for repressurization for water in holding tanks
  • Jet type pump – can be used in shallow and deep wells but for those over 100 feet would require a higher expense. Also used to for pumping from open water bodies and to repressurize from holding tanks.
  • Hand pumps – are operated through human power. Now an obsolete technology which is rarely seen.

Comparison Of Jet And Submersible Pumps

Of the well water pumping technologies available currently, submersible type pumps and jet type are those which are most commonly used. If you wish to get a better understanding of what type of pumping device would be suitable for you, it is best to visit your nearest Grundfos pumps dealer in Hungary where you would be able to get adequate details from trained sales professionals.

Jet types are more commonly used in shallow wells this is because they ideally need to be placed in close proximity to the well. Well water is drawn out through suction. Due to this they are more efficient for use in wells that are not very deep as higher depths would require a higher cost investment. Cost-wise for average use it is moderate. They can also be used in swimming pool areas as well. As drawbacks this type is a bit noisy during operation and requires to be primed. Also diagnosing problems is slightly more difficult.

Submersible type pumping devices are fixed underwater, usually at the bottom of the well. Therefore the depth of the well does not have much of an impact on its operation. The mechanism of action involves pushing water up rather than pumping water up. When it operation it is found to be quiet and comparatively more energy efficient. Also no priming is required as they are self-priming and have lesser maintenance requirements.
