Home Water Well Pumps Models That Are Energy-Efficient (Save on Electricity Bills)

Choosing an energy-efficient home water well pump can significantly reduce electricity bills. Here are a few models known for their energy efficiency:

  1. Grundfos SQFlex Series: These pumps are known for their energy efficiency and versatility. They can operate on both solar and wind energy, making them ideal for off-grid applications. The SQFlex series features a permanent magnet motor that ensures efficient operation.
  2. Franklin Electric SubDrive SolarPak: This solar-powered pump system is designed for energy efficiency and reliability. It’s a great option if you’re looking to harness renewable energy for your water well.
  3. Goulds Aquavar SOLO2: This variable speed constant pressure system adjusts the pump speed to meet water demand, resulting in significant energy savings. The Aquavar SOLO2 is compatible with a wide range of Goulds pumps.
  4. Pentair IntelliFlo: Known for its energy efficiency in pool pumps, Pentair also offers well pumps with similar technology. The variable speed motors optimize energy use based on demand.
  5. Red Lion RLSP Series: These self-priming sprinkler pumps are designed for maximum efficiency and long-term durability. They are suitable for large properties and high-demand water systems.
  6. Shurflo 9300 Submersible Pump: This low voltage pump is highly efficient and suitable for wells up to 230 feet deep. It’s a great option for remote locations where electricity supply might be a concern.
  7. Zoeller Aquanot® Fit 508: This DC pump system is known for its efficiency and reliability, particularly in battery backup systems. It ensures continuous water supply during power outages.

When selecting a water well pump, consider factors like the depth of the well, the flow rate required, and the power source availability. Additionally, looking for pumps with variable speed technology can lead to significant energy savings by adjusting the pump’s operation to match the water demand.

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).

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. To have your well pump repaired or installed properly, you should contact your licensed Washington well pump repair contractor, JKA Well Drilling. We have the knowledge and expertise to get the job done right, and as quick as possible. (360) 684-1932
