The type of well pump used is very important. From ease of use to efficiency, if you don't take your time and choose a pump wisely, you can have problems in these areas. If you're on the search for a new unit, here are just some of the reasons you should consider a submersible well pump for your home's needs.
No Priming Needed
Submersible well pumps don't require outside priming. Priming is a process that delivers water to the pump. When you have a pump that is outside the water, the water must be primed, or delivered, to the pump; however, since submersible pumps are already in the water this is not a concern. This can help you avoid buying extra equipment.
Less Energy Consumption
If you're looking for a way to save on your energy costs, a submersible pump is a great idea. Compared to other options, submersible pumps come with less energy consumption. Again, with the pump being submersed in the water, it doesn't have to pump hard to take in the water. The less the unit must work, the less energy it will use.
Submersible well pumps are also easier to install than many of their counterparts. One of the reasons why is again the fact that the pump is inside the water and therefore doesn't require many of the water delivery mechanisms that other pumps require. An easier install will get the pump operating faster and may even help you save on labor costs.
No Corrosion Risks
Choosing a submersible pump can also afford you a reduced corrosion risk. Although they are used near water, not all pumps are designed to resist corrosion. However, submersible pumps are generally designed with stainless steel. The great thing about this is that stainless steel is not subject to corrosion or rusting, which can save on future repair costs.
Submersible well pumps also have a longer lifespan. A part of this has to do with the fact that they don't corrode, which can cause permanent failure. Not only will you have reduced maintenance needs, but you can also expect to get more years of use from the unit than you would with other options, which is a great way to save money.
While there are several options available to choose from, submersible well pumps do offer a set of noteworthy and favorable benefits. Make certain you are making the right choice for your home.
