Submersible well pumps are the most common types of pumps used today for well water applications. Just like their name says they are installed submerged in the water. Submersible pumps have two distinct advantages. They are installed in the water so they do not have to draw water up like an old style jet pump would they only have to push water. They are also much more efficient as they use multiple impellers to deliver the water to its end user from the well. Because of these advantages submersible pumps can deliver a higher flow rate and more pressure with less horsepower.

Submersible pumps can range from ½ HP up to a 1,000 HP. Most residential applications are from ½ HP to 7-1/2 HP. In addition to being sized by horse power they also come in different flow ranges. Typically we will see in residential applications from 5 gallons per minute to 35 gallons per minute. Submersible pumps typically have a life-span of about 15 years.
