What is a Borehole Pump?

A borehole pump is a pump that is installed in a water source, such as a groundwater well.

It pumps water at high pressure via the delivery outlet. This sort of pump is better suited for this function than self-priming pumps (such as garden/booster pumps), making it an excellent choice for use in water depths greater than eight metres. The long, narrow pipe of a borehole pump makes it appropriate for wells/boreholes with a minimum diameter of 4". (10 cm).

So, how does a borehole pump work?

The motor housing, the pump body, and the suction grid are the three parts of a borehole pump. The pump body is steered by the motor housing, allowing it to pump water that enters through the suction grid at it's base.

Several impellers fitted within the body of the pump. The more significant the number of impellers, the higher the pressure and flow rate. Water can be pushed at high pressure through a hose/pipe linked to the delivery outlet. The water will escape the pump through the delivery outlet after passing past the impellers.

Borehole pumps are ideal for circumstances where the use of hose pipes is prohibited. We have everything from complete pumps with bores ranging from 3" to 6" to individual motors, cartridges, and the necessary control equipment.

Also, don't forget to your cable joining kits.
