23 Dec Exploring Alternative Water Well Pump Options
Did you know that there are water pump options that allow you to go “off the grid”? While pumps powered by electricity are still the most common, here is a look at a few of the other options that are available to you.
Solar-Powered Well Pumps
Solar-powered well pumps are powered by solar panels, which means they do not need an external power source to operate. While solar powered systems are typically a bit more expensive to install, there are no ongoing costs associated with this type of system. In addition, you eliminate the need for power cables when you install a solar-powered system.
Manual pumps are an ideal choice where a temporary pump is necessary, as they are lightweight, affordable and easy to remove from a well. Nonetheless, they are capable of providing a constant supply of water, even when a motor-driven pump stops working.
Air-Driven (Pneumatic) Well Pumps
Powered by air rather than electricity, air-driven well pumps are most frequently used in industrial and commercial settings.
Kinetic Water Ram Water Pumps
By using the force of running water combined with hydraulics, a kinetic water ram water pump can lift water as much as 150 feet from a pump location. These systems are most frequently used in agricultural settings due to the risk of stream water being unsanitary.
As you are considering the type of system that you want to install in your home, farm or business, it is important to explore all of the options that are available to you. While the more traditional electrical-powered system may make the most sense for meeting your needs, it is also possible that one of these alternative systems will be better suited to your needs.
