Cityplumbers are one of Dublin, Wicklow, Meath and Kildare’s leading suppliers, installation specialist and maintenance engineers for Well Pump solutions. For more than 15 years now we have been providing a one stop solution to fit or replace well pumps.
Most homes have a mains water connection that is part of a network controlled by the local authority. If you live in a single home apart from others it can be a completely different situation.
Well Pump Requirement
Move a few miles out of town and this situation can change. While the water workings are still invisible, your water supply is independent from the neighbor’s down the road. Each home has its own well supply from which to draw water. As a result, each home has its own electromechanical system for getting the water from the well. Included in each of these systems is a pump, and the most common types are jet pumps and submersible pumps.
Shallow Well Jet
These types are mounted on the surface and draw water from the well using a suction action. This type only works with wells that are 8 metres deep or less. This usually also require a booster or a break tank to increase the water delivery in the plumbing lines. The pump sends the water to the break tank where it is stored for later use.
Submersible Well Pumps
A Submersible well pump, also called electric submersible well pumps, are types can be fully submerged. The motor drive is hermetically sealed and is then bolted to the body of the pump.
A submersible type pushes water to the surface, instead of using suction. Converting rotary energy into kinetic energy into pressure supply. Achieved by the water being pulled into the bodyt: first into the intake. Then the rotation of the impeller pushes the water through a diffuser. From there, it goes to the surface through the rising supply pipe.
One major advantage of submersible pumps is that it does not have to be primed. This is because it is already submerged in the fluid. Submersible pumps are more energy efficient because they don’t have to spend a lot of energy moving water into the . Water pressure pushes the water into a submersible pump, thus reducing a lot of the pump’s energy. A single impeller submersible pump can draw water up to a depth of 60 metres.
One disadvantage of Submersible pumps are the need for specialist equipment to retrieve the pump from the borehole. This makes either replacement or maintenance labour-intensive. The pumps can be quite heavy and combined with the supply pipe weight and cable it can be very hard work!
Our Submersible Well Pump of choice is the Stairs type.
