1. Air and Water Cooler pumps
Getting the best cooler water pump is no more a difficult task. We have the solution to your needs.
A good water cooler pump works at a power of 40 watts. The material is of Aluminum and the electricity consumption is low. Its operating voltage is 220 to 240 volts and the frequency is 50 Hertz.
It has a motor facing down that help to absorb more water. This makes high water flow out and cool the grass on the sides and give out cool air .These pumps are made of highly durable material thereby giving long life. These pumps are suitable for household operations like pulling water etc .
It is a heavy-duty pump that can have multi-use property. The discharge rate is 3200 liters per hour and this acts on a single-phase supply.
Apart from the cooler there are other Applications too , like
* Desert coolers
* Fountains etc .,
2. Deep well water jet pumps
Deep-well jet pumps can draw water from depths greater than 25 feet when the jet is separated from the impeller housing and placed down in the water. The impeller drives water down into the jet’s body while the jet delivers water back up to the pump. Deep-well jet pumps use suction at the jet to bring water into the system, as well as pressure generated by the impeller to lift water from the well and into the home.
To keep the system from over-pumping the well, a deep-well jet pump will include a 25-foot long tailpipe connected to the intake end of the jet housing. If the water level drops below the level of the jet housing, the tailpipe ensures the well will never be pumped dry. The greater the distance of the jet over the water level, the more efficient the pumping will be.
Choose Ellen jet pumps for your deep set wells to get water for your home and farm.
3. Submersible water pumps for bore wells, ponds etc
Since submersible pumps lie under water, “Cavitation” which occurs when excess air or gas gets into the mechanical parts of the pump, is usually not a problem for submersible pumps since the pumps lie deep beneath the water surface and always have access to water. Although submersible pumps can be more efficient than jet pumps at delivering more water with a comparable motor. Fortunately, submersible pumps are generally known for their reliability, often performing optimally for up to 25 years before needing to be serviced. Submersible pumps are an efficient and low maintenance way to deliver safe drinking water into your home.
4. What Size Well Pump Do I Need?
You will also need to determine the best pump size, depending on your water home needs. Pumps are rated in GPM (gallons per minute). A typical 3- to 4-bedroom home requires 8-12 GPM. When determining your home water needs, add one GPM for every water fixture in your home. Such fixtures include clothes washers, dishwashers, faucets, refrigerators, showers and outdoor water spigots.
Although you’ll need a large enough pump to meet your home water needs, an over sized pump will create energy inefficiencies and reduced performance. When replacing a pump, you should choose a unit with the same horsepower. However, additional horsepower maybe necessary if you are adding new appliances or family members. The longer the distance to transport water, the more horsepower will be needed.
If replacing a pump, you can check the identification plate on your pump to determine the horsepower. Keep in mind that submersible pumps may require either three wires or two wires, so you’ll to determine how many wires your replacement pump will need.
Armed with this information you are now in know of which pump you need for your home. So choose wisely, choose well.
