As a water pump manufacturer, PEARL Water Systems recognizes that there are plenty of options to consider if you are in the market for a submersible pump. Your water pump needs could vary based on capacity, power, price, building materials, or even the liquid you intend to pump. However, before getting into details about what to consider when buying a submersible water pump, let’s talk a little more about these pumps, how they work, and their history.

What are Submersible Water Pumps?

Submersible pumps are water pumps designed to work while submerged in the same liquid they intend to pump. Electric submersible pumps, or sub pumps, are hermetically sealed, so the electrical components of the motor in the pump body are not in direct contact with liquid. This type of pump works differently than above-ground pumps since they push the liquid out of the pond rather than pulling it from the source.

When Was the Submersible Water Pump Invented?

Russian engineer, Armais Arutunoff. created the original submersible water pump design in 1916, but it was supposed to be used for ships, wells, and mines. The submersible pump was first introduced in 1950 in the United States.

  • Pressure: Depending on your needs, it is essential to select the proper pressure range, so you will not buy more capacity than you need. Pearl submersible water pumps can manage heights from 410 feet to 1,794 feet.

What are the Advantages of Submersible Pumps?

Since submersible water pumps are submerged in liquid, they have some advantages compared to ground water pumps.

  • Priming: Since submersible water pumps operate below the fluid’s surface, there is no need to prime them.
  • Efficiency: A properly fitted submersible water pump is highly efficient for moving water out of the well compared to other pump types.
  • Noise: As these pumps are submerged, noise is usually a nonissue.
  • Winterizing: Depending on the location and the depth at which the pump operates, a submersible pump may not need to be winterized.
