A jet pump is the most common pump used for a shallow well. Jet pumps are mounted above the well, either in the home or in a well house, and draw the water up from the well through suction. Suction is created by an electric motor that drives an impeller, or centrifugal pump. The impeller moves the water from the well through a narrow pipe or jet mounted in the housing that is located in front of the impeller. The narrowing at the jet causes the speed of the moving water to increase. This is similar to the pressure created in a garden hose. The height that the water can lift corresponds to the weight of the surrounding air. As altitude increases the atmospheric pressure decreases. Because of this decrease, it is normal to limit the depth of a shallow well to about 25 feet when using a jet pump. Another aspect of shallow wells that use jet pumps is the need for water to draw water. These pumps must be to be primed with water before operation. They also need a 1- way check valve installed in the feed line to insure water in the pump and plumbing system don't flow back into the well. Jet pumps are available in several Horsepower (HP) options for different pumping performance rates. They are ideal for supplying fresh water to homes, cabins, sprinkler systems and booster services.
