Borehole pumps are commonly used for pressure boosting, lifting clear water from boreholes, collecting tanks, septic tanks and water courses and are suitable for providing pressurised water in domestic systems. Submersible multistage pumps are the best suited for this purpose.
Borehole is a thin vertical hole in the ground and Borehole Pumps are used to extract water from the hole. Borehole Pumps are mostly handpicked from the best suppliers for their precise design and optimal performance in terms of flow and pressure.
Most Borehole Pumps are constructed from decomposition resistant materials such as stainless steel to protect from scratch caused by direct contact with the earth and mineral deposits.
If you don’t know where to start when selecting a Borehole Pumps, let borehole drilling company do the work for you.
Selecting the right Borehole Pumps
Firstly, it’s important to understand that choosing a pump is a very important step in getting the most value out of your borehole.
Reputable pump installer would be thoughtful when selecting a pump for a borehole installation. The aim is that you, the end-user, understand why a pump has been selected for your borehole.
Why Select the Right Pump?
While the initial cost of the pump is an important consideration, the life expectancy cost of owning the borehole installation should also be considered. Also, the capital cost of the pump will be less than 10% of the total cost of owning the borehole installation over its lifespan.
Over and undersized pumps are very inefficient. They consume a lot of extra energy relative to the amount of water delivered. In addition to this, pumps that are energy inefficient will have relatively short periods between breakdowns. Therefore, selecting the right pump even if it is more expensive in the short-term will be highly beneficial over the lifespan of the installation.
It’s clear that choosing the right pump is very important, but with all the options on the market, where do you start? Here are the factors that you’ll need to consider.
What do you plan on doing with the water that you pump from your borehole? Here are some examples of applications that we see at the BWA:
- Garden irrigation
- Using a sprinkler irrigation system
- Using a hosepipe
- Filling a tank or reservoir
- Household use
- Farm applications
- Crop irrigation
- Water for livestock
- Mine dewatering
These different applications will each require very different pumps.
