Moving to the Country: Agriculture Blogs for New Farmers

Welcome! My name is Sarah, and I am a farmer. Ten years ago, I couldn't have imagined making that statement, but, wow, things changed quickly. I met my husband five years ago. We fell in love at first sight, and right away, we started talking about moving to the country. He was a graphic designer, and I worked as a writer, so as long as we had internet connection, we could keep our day jobs and also start a farm. Within two years, he was able to quit his job and focus exclusively on on the farm, and I pulled back from writing as well. The experience has been amazing. I decided to start a blog for others who are thinking about diving into the world of farming, and I hope you like it. Cheers! Sarah.

Pay Attention to These 4 Things When Choosing a Submersible Pump for Your Borewell

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.
