Learn About Submersible Pumps and How They Work

Unlike any other pump service, a submersible pump is fully submerged in the water or liquid it needs to pump. You may need to employ a water well service to determine the viability of a submerged pump as these have a vast application. We recommend reaching out to our team at Crabtree Well & Pump to find out if this is the best pump service for you. In the meantime, read through our blog to learn more about these pumps and how they work.

What Are Submersible Pumps?

Submersible pumps are primarily designed to work fully submerged in the water. The hermetically sealed motor of the pump has a water-tight, oil-filled enclosure surrounding it. This mechanism also protects the motor against water damage, thus ensuring long-lasting application. You will also find that the oil enclosure prevents electrocution and short circuits.

How Do Submersible Pumps Work?

Unlike other pumps, a submersible pump employs a pushing mechanism. This increases overall water pumping efficiency as the submerged head of the pump uses pressure energy to operate. In doing so, there is no added energy used to draw the liquid. Additionally, the motor of the submerged pump remains cool throughout operation, thereby preventing overheating. By converting rotary energy into pressure energy, the pump performs much better than its counterparts.


Advantages of Submersible Pumps

There are many advantages of installing a submersible pump. At Crabtree Well & Pump, we believe that these pumps are much more efficient than other types. This is because they utilize positive fluid pressure to move the water, thus expending less energy overall. Additionally, these pumps have a natural noise-canceling mechanism as they are fully submerged during operation. You will also find that these pumps are primarily self-priming as they operate below the surface.


Application of Submersible Pumps

Submersible pumps are extremely versatile and used in a variety of settings. Their sturdy iron cast construction protects against corrosion in the harshest of conditions. The most common application of these pumps is in wells where they help lift water to the surface. You will also find that many well pump repair services cover submersible pumps because of their vast application. Additionally, submerged pumps are also used in the wastewater industry. This is because of their compact and affordable installation costs.

Although the benefits of submersible pumps are vast, we recommend using a professional water well service to understand their application and installation. Our expert team at Crabtree Well & Pump has successfully installed submersible pumps after determining their client's needs and requirements for them.
