What are the different kinds of water pumps?
The sort of pump you require depends on where you are getting the water from and where you are pumping it to.
There are many kinds of water pumps. The main ones in use today are:
Jet Pump – this is a motorised pump that moves the water from the source to the destination, often powered by air, water or steam and paired with a pressure tank to ensure the water is distributed evenly throughout the destination.
Submersible Pump – this needs to be submerged in liquid and can be installed in a bore hole, pit pond or sump and sewage.
Centrifugal Pump – this moves the water using a propellor to push it through and also needs to be submerged in water.
