Well Pumps

Grainger carries the right well pump for your water table regardless of depth. Ground wells in areas boasting a stable, potable water supply near the surface call for a shallow well pump, while a deep well pump can ably draw from water tables up to several hundred feet deep. A submersible well pump can be a more effective solution for pushing greater volumes of pressurized water up from within a deep well, outperforming above-ground deep well pumps with the same size motor. Rely on Grainger to supply the right well pump for your water table.

Answer: 
Hello,
This is a great question, any well that is deeper than 25 feet is considered to be a "Deep Well" so for this you would need a deep well pump. This pump could be a Submersible ( providing you well has a minimum 6" diameter casing and a Pitless adapter installed below the frost line. Otherwise a above ground convertable jet pump is used, this with a single pipe or double pipe jet. Typically a single pipe jet will work up to 100' so this would be what I would suggest. I have attached a link to a website that will giv you more information. I hoep this answers your question, thanks for using Grainger Ask & Answer!

Answer: 
Hello,
Well you have a good start but we will need more info, like how fast GPM what type of power do you have. What size pipe you will be using, those kind of things... Otherwise Grainger has about 100 different pumps that would likely work.
So we would need some more info, but that being said we would have a pump that should work.
Thanks for using Grainger Ask & Answer!

I need a pump that will withstand a Michigan winter. Currently we have an above-ground pump connected to our stab-pipe. But, each winter we have to remove in order for it not to freeze.

Our growing chicken population will require water all winter (we carried gallons of water last year, which isn't fun at all).

Suggestions?

Answer: 
Hello,
It is a very good question, this is a question that will require a simple answer: No there is not a pump that you can install above ground and will work below freezing. You can however freeze protect with enclosures and Freeze protection tape and insulation.You can wrap the pump with freeze protection tape and the line with the same stuff. The only draw back is if you lose power you will loose your pump and lines.

I hope this answers your question, thanks for using Grainger Ask & Answer!

Answer: 
Hello,
That is a good question 400' water level that is a 900' deep well? That is a pretty broad range for a well, how much water do you need. That will determine the size of pump HP & Voltage and the number of stages. Without that information I cannot give you a pump, that will fulfill you needs.

I hope that answers your question, thanks for using Grainger Ask & Answer!

Have been using a shallow well pump, but it is not efficient in both bringing the water up the hill and pressurizing my plumbing. I use a storage tank and a second pump but the tank presents possibility of contamination. Am preparing to replace some of my water line, so now would be the time to switch if I am going to do so.

Answer: 
Hello,
Before we could answer that we would need more information like, how deep is the well? how many bathrooms in the house? when you say pumping up hill how high from the well head to the house in feet of elevation? When you say I need to replace pipe, what size is the pipe? All of these questions need to be answered before we could make a reccomendation. You can call Grainger at 800-472-4643 and ask to speak with technical support Pumps & plumbing.
