April 25, 2022

If you are on the market for a new electric water pump, you may have many questions regarding the right one to choose. Electric pumps are ultra-convenient appliances and are extremely versatile. This means that you can use them for a variety of applications.

There are many types of electric water pumps, and it is important to do a bit of research to help you determine the one that is right for the job. Whether you are looking to fill a pool, boost the water pressure in your home, or water your lawn with sprinkles, there is an electric pump that is built for what you have in mind.

Submersible Water Pumps

Electric water pump applications can be used both indoors and below-ground. However, the majority of them are made to be used around the home, such as deep-well or shallow pumps, booster pumps to increase water pressure, pool cover pumps, and more.

Submersible pumps are built to be submerged in the water you need to move. These can easily be attached to an adapter and can be used to remove standing water, drain window wells, and empty clogged sinks.

The most common submersible water pumps are trash pumps and utility pumps. If you are just trying to get rid of standing water, you can use a utility pump. However, a trash pump will work better if the water you need to remove contains solids, sand, or debris.

Electric Well Pumps

Well pumps are designed to move water from an underground source, such as a well, to your home. They also provide water supply consistently, which is important for taking showers, etc. There are several types of well pumps, such as deep well pumps, shallow well pumps, and convertible jet pumps.

The dept of your well will help you determine the type of pump you will need to purchase. For example, shallow well pumps work from 0.25’, convertible pumps work for wells as deep as 90’, and deep wells are more effective for depths as high as 300’ or more below ground.

Specialty Water Pumps & Other Pumps

These types of pumps are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and types. With each size and shape, they all serve a different purpose. Sprinkler pumps are beneficial for pumping water from ponds, lakes, etc.

On the other hand, pool cover pumps are used to remove standing water and prevent damage to your pool cover. Drill pumps can be used along with a drill to help unclog drains, washing machines, and sinks. Finally, condensate pumps are used to remove condensation from AC units.  

When to Use Gas-Water Pump

The majority of all underwater, indoor, or underground water pump applications require an electric pump. However, if you require additional speed, you can rely on a gas-powered water pump to help with tasks such as emptying a pond, pool, or flooding. Gas water pumps are highly beneficial when you need to remove a lot of water quickly.
