What Is a Submersible Well Pump?

Just like its name suggests, a submersible well pump is submerged under water. It is part of the electromechanical system, and it's designed to take water from underground sources. This type of pump features an airtight sealed motor that doesn't require any priming.  That said, since the pump is designed to work underwater, it does need to remain there. 

From fitting into a wide range of spaces to running automatically, well pumps will provide your household with several benefits — and these pumps rarely fail. 

How to Install a Well Pump

The installation process could look slightly different depending on whether you're replacing your current pump or installing a new one. A few other factors could play a role, too. Installation varies, for example, depending on whether you are adding in a shallow or deep well pump. 

In general, though, you can expect to need a few basic raw materials and tools:

  • Crimp connectors
  • Rope
  • Pliers
  • Piping
  • Wire strippers

Regardless of the type of well pump you're installing, be sure to remove all of the pressure first and turn off the power supply. Once you've drained out the liquids, you can start the installation process. 

After you install the pump, it's always a good idea to run and then test it before your family starts using it.

The Difference Between a Submersible Well Pump and a Jet Well Pump

While both are designed to provide you and your family with clean, safe water, there are some differences between a submersible well pump and a jet well pump. 

A submersible well pump needs to be underwater to operate. It features a cylinder shape. Depending on the type, it may or may not include a pressure tank. A motorized jet pump, on the other hand, typically works alongside a pressure tank. This kind of pump requires water to work as it should, and it helps draw water up through the use of the impeller.
