Water Pump Buying Guide

There is a saying, “Always pick the right tool for the right job.” Same is the case for water pumps. So far there are two main types of pump in the market: Surface Pumps and Submersible Pumps. Our customers have always been asking, what’s the difference between the two? Here is the clarification:

Surface Pump

Surface pumps sucks the water from the well to the pump from a maximum depth of 24′ below surface. These pumps will only generate around 50 psi depending on how low the water level is at the time.

Submersible Pump

Submersible are generally vertical multi-staged centrifugal pumps where the pump is below the free surface of the fluid to be pumped. It pushes the water to the surface instead of sucking it. A submersible pump never needs priming and delivers more volume and better pressure!

So basically if you are targeting water with low depth, surface pump would be much preferable, on the other hand, if you require something installed much deeper, submersible pump would prove to be more useful than surface pump.

  1. I had no idea that submersible pumps delivered better pressure than regular ones. It makes sense that educating yourself on how these pumps work can help you choose the best one to provide the services you need for your household. As I see it, taking the time to consult with a professional can help you choose the best water system for your needs and can help you properly maintain it so it lasts longer.
