FAQ: Does a self-priming pump need to be primed the first time, or after a long period of storage?
Yes, self-priming pumps, especially a centrifugal pump needs to have their casings filled with water to properly function. Once this is done it will not be necessary to repeat this process.
Types of Well Pumps
I. Submersible Well Pumps
A submersible well pump operates below the water level in your water well. These pumps push water from your well to the surface. Depending on the output required, pumps can vary in size. The size of the unit is based on what the peak demand of your household water consumption requires. Submersible pumps house a hermetically sealed motor encased in a 2 to 4-foot cylinder that is 3 to 5 inches in diameter. When the systems pressure switch is on, the motor engages and drives an impeller that spins, pushing water through the pump body to the surface. Then the water goes into a pressure tank until used within your household.
Advantages of Submersible Pumps
Submersible pumps are considered more reliable than above ground pumps and have fewer mechanical problems
Submersible pumps can have a life span of up to 25 years
Because they are below the surface of the well water, submersible pumps are not subject to cavitation like an above ground pump
Unlike an above ground pump, submersible pumps won’t lose prime which can result in a motor burning out
II. Surface – Jet Pumps
A surface or jet pump is one of the most common well pumps for shallow wells. Unlike submersible pumps, jet pumps are mounted above the well. They are often contained in a well house but can also be in the home. Jet pumps use atmospheric pressure which creates a vacuum which draws the water up from the well. Jet pumps have an electric motor that drives an impeller or centrifugal pump. Water is drawn through a narrow opening in the front of the impeller where it is constricted. Much like a nozzle on a garden hose, this causes the speed of the water to increase. As water leaves the jet, a vacuum is created which sucks more water from the well. Because they use water to “draw” water, jet pumps require priming or the need to be filled with water in order to work properly.
III. Pressure Tanks
Pressure tanks are an integral part of any water well pump system. Whether you have a Submersible Pump or a Jet Pump, each move the water from your well to a Pressure Tank. Pumps don’t run continuously. As water pumps into the systems pressure tank it, compresses the air in the tank. When the pressure in the tank reaches a preset level, usually 40 to 60 PSI, the pump will automatically turn off. As you use water in your household, the PSI will drop in the pressure tank. Once it reaches a certain level, from between 20 to 40 PSI, the pump will engage and draw water into the pressure tank. The cycle continues to repeat based on water usage.
Pressure tanks come in various sizes depending on household size and consumption. Pressure tanks can be as small as 10 gallons, or as large as 200 gallons. A typical residential situation calls for a pressure tank around 44 gallons. The professionals at Water-Pro will analyze the needs of your situation and recommend the proper pressure tank to meet your consumption needs.
