Water supply in your home is paramount. Having enough water supply in your home depends on a wide range of things, such as the drilling methods you choose and the types of pumps you buy. In order to ensure that your borewell is a success in terms of supply of water in your home, you need to be very careful when choosing your submersible pumps. These pumps are responsible for pumping water out of your borewell and into your plumbing system.
Therefore, in order to make sure that you have the right submersible pump for your borewell, here are 4 things you should keep in mind when buying one.
The Intended Use
While submersible pumps will help you pump water from your borewell, you need to pick one that's suited for your intended or specific purposes. If you intend to pump water for your household use for instance, you will want to pick one for this specific use. The type of pump you pick for that household water may not be the same you will use for your farm for irrigation purposes for instance. Therefore, you need to be clear on your intended when shopping for the pump.
The Flow/Discharge Rate
The flow or the discharge rate is also another important component to look at. You want something that will pump out enough water to meet your demands. The discharge rate on most submersible pump models is usually based on a maximum volume of water that the pump can discharge in an hour. Therefore, evaluate your needs carefully whether it's for household or agricultural use and estimate the amount of you will need so that you find a pump that will deliver on these needs.
The Size and Suction of the Hose
The size of the hose on the pump as well as its suction power is very important. The suction power can have an impact on the volume of water flowing through your pump per unit time and the pressure of water as well. The size will also affect the water pressure and whether you will have enough water when the water levels reduce, such as in drought.
The Submersible Pump's Total Head
Three elements make up the total head of your pump. The first element is the vertical drop of the pump's hose, which helps determine the loss of pressure. The working pressure is the second element and it affects the pressure of water at the outlets. The last element is the load loss, which simply is the loss of charge when water is flowing through the pipes. Make sure these three factors are evaluated with the help of a specialist to ensure efficiency in your water supply.
