How Does a Water Well Pump Work?

November 14, 2022

A well is a great way to get fresh water for those homes or other buildings in Wewahitchka, FL that are not easily connected to city water or to other water systems. Wells are what many people get their water from. Knowing how a well works and how a well pump works can help you determine if one will work for you. So, what is a well pump and how do they work?

What Is a Water Well System Design?

There are three main types of water well systems that are drilled to access water. The first are drilled wells. These are wells that are drilled into the earth where water is so that the person having the well drilled can access water. Another type of well is a driven well. This is a very small diameter well that is made with pipes and that is not a large open well as many people will associate wells with. The last well is a dug well, and that is just what it sounds like, a well that has been dug.

All three types of well are great for those that have a well system as their primary source for water. These wells are going to be fitted based on where the home is located, where water is, and how easy it is to access it.

What Is a Well Pump?

A well pump is the pump that is used to bring the water up out of the ground where it is accessed and to bring it into the home. For those homes that use a well for their water, the well pump is going to help move the water up out of the ground and help put it into a cistern or holding tank where it will then be sent into the home.

Wells are a great way to get water if you are not able to hook up to normal water or to city water. If that is something that you need, you do need to take the time to figure out what sort of well is going to work best for you, what sort of well is going to help you get the water that you need, and also help you get the best outcome.

Wells have come a long way since they were first invented and there are now more pump technologies than ever before that can make using a well for your water easier than ever before. Contact us at Action Electric Motor & Pump Repair to learn more!
