Washington Well Pump Installation Service
For Washington, there are a large number of variables that determine the size and type of well pump that is put in any given well – including well yield, depth, water system delivery pressure, elevation of delivery point, etc. Additionally, because electricity costs money and water supplies aren't necessarily endless, it's often good practice to size pumps for electrical AND water efficiencies. Finally, there are three standard pump types for most residential and small irrigation projects (larger pumping systems, such as systems serving farms & cities, tend to use commercial pumps).
Submersible pumps push water from deep underground, allowing you to make use of water coming from deep wells for drinking, irrigation, animal watering, vehicle washing, etc.
Jet pumps suck water from shallow wells to the surface, but are limited to wells where the water is only 25 feet or less from the surface. Jet pumps will not deliver a lot of water, so are generally only recommended for small residential projects where the project is on a very strict budget.
Centrifugal pumps are used to deliver large quantities of water from reservoirs or storage tanks.
While it's possible to buy all of these pumps at a big box store or hardware store, you'll sacrifice in quality what you save in dollars – as most of these stores stock the relabeled products that don't meet the quality control standards for local professional dealers.
