Well Pumps and Well Pump Guys in Flat Rock, IL
No matter if the well is deep or shallow, there are filtering systems attached to the Well Pump. This filter will take out excess lime, silt, sand, or any other debris that isn't desirable and likely to ruin the pump.
Jet pumps are commonly used on shallow wells, but they can also work on deeper wells. 25 feet deep or less is considered to be a shallow well and there isn't a lot of pressure needed to draw water up this amount of footage. The jet pump works like a straw, in that is sucks the water up the pipes with the help of atmospheric pressure. A one-way valve is placed on these pumps so the water isn't pulled from the well back into the ground. Priming needs to be performed on these pumps before they will work.
