Digging A New Well? Why You Should Choose A Submersible Well Pump

by Joyce Rivera

If your new well is being installed, it's time to choose a pump. When it comes to well pumps, you have a couple of options to choose from - jet pumps and submersible pumps. If you're thinking about choosing a jet pump, you might want to rethink that decision. Jet pumps work well for moving water to your home. But, submersible pumps offer advantages that you might not have thought about. Here are just three of the reasons you should choose a submersible pump for your new well. 

They'll Save You Money

If you're looking for ways to trim your household budget, a good place to start is with your well pump. Well pumps do require electrical power to operate. But, the cost of operation will depend on the type of pump you choose for your well. Submersible well pumps cost less to operate. That's because they don't need to work as hard to draw water up from the well. One of the problems with jet pumps is that they sit above the water. That means they need to use more energy to draw water up from the well. Submersible well pumps are installed below the surface of the water, which makes it easier to send water flowing through the pipes. As a result, you'll save money on your energy bills. 

They're Low-Maintenance

If you're looking for a well pump that's low maintenance, choose a submersible pump. Submersible pumps use an impeller system to pull water from the well, which puts less pressure on the system. Not only that, because the pump is fully submerged in water, it never needs to be primed. As a result, submersible pumps require less maintenance. Not only that, because the pumps don't need to be primed, they're great for first-time well users. 

They Offer Quiet Operation

If you want to ensure the quiet enjoyment of your home, you need a submersible pump for your new well. Above-ground well pumps tend to be quite noisy, which can be a real problem while you're trying to sleep. One of the great things about submersible well pumps is that you won't need to deal with the noise. Because submersible pumps are installed below the surface, you won't hear the motor running. As a result, you'll receive all the water you need, without the excess noise. 

Don't take chances with your new well pump. Choose a submersible well pump and enjoy the benefits described above.
