Submersible pumps are so named because they are designed to be submerged in fluid. Sometimes, submersible pumps are called “electric submersible pumps” or “ESP’s.” Because they have to be submerged, they are not subject to pump cavitation, which occurs when there is a high disparity in elevation between the fluid surface and the pump.
Submersible pumps are more efficient and require less power than jet pumps because they push water to the surface instead of pulling it. Submersible pumps have a motor which is hermetically sealed in the casing of the pump. This ensures that water never touches an electrical component.
Popular Applications of Submersible Pumps
Submersible pumps are most often used in the home for pumping water out of a basement. However, they are used for many applications in industry.
Submersible pumps are efficient for pumping out septic tanks. Fluid is transferred into hoses to storage tanks and taken to a treatment facility.
Submersible pumps are often used to pump excess water from work sites or flooded basements in construction sites. They can also be used to pump slurries.
Submersible pumps can be used in inland or offshore oil wells to pump oil from the ground to treatment and holding facilities above ground.
Deep Well Drilling / Borehole Pumps
If you need to drill deep for water in a home, a submersible Borehole pump is a great solution. Borehole pumps can pump water from great depths to holding tanks and into homes.
A submersible borehole pumps can be used to provide water to an irrigation system. In series, they can be used for industrial and agricultural irrigation.
