SUBMERSIBLE PUMP SERVICE / INSTALL
We are proud to not only offer conventional submersible pumping systems but Constant Pressure systems as well. Constant Pressure has shown us its worth time and time again especially under commercial, geothermal and irrigation applications. Northeast not only offers pumping systems for wells but also Booster pumping systems for municipal water users who desire a more consistent or stronger water pressure.
Submersible pumping systems are easy to install and operate, and have improved electrical and mechanical design compared to the jet pump systems of the past which is why they are the standard system in terms of installation. The submersible pump is submerged under water in the actual well hence the name.
The submersible pump itself consists of a multi stage centrifugal pump. The wet end of the pump is what determines the output of water inside this portion of the submersible pump unit there is a series of plastic or stainless impellers( number of impellers determines the capabilities of the pump) that rotate on a shaft that connects to the pump motor. At the bottom of the wet end unit is the intake screen. This is what draws the water into the wet end and up into the drop pipe and into the residence. The motor is what determines the HP(horsepower) of the systems capabilities this is what rotates the shaft enabling the pump to actually move the water. Northeast Water Wells Inc always installs Stainless steel pumps with plastic impellers due to the fact that the thermo-plastic impellers are more giving when sediment is present in the system. Stainless impellers are an alternative to be used however even the smallest particulate can cause the motor and impellers to seize shortening the lifespan of the system. The term Stainless pump is often used to describe the type of base motor bracket and top end check valve housing not necessarily the impeller type.
When sizing a pump many factors are taken into consideration: the flow and depth of the well, length from well to the point of entry, desired pressure and flow. The designer must take all these factors into consideration when establishing the final system. Every aspect down to the size wire and tank used must be designed to specification or the ultimate result would spell out disaster. Improperly designed pumping systems are what give water wells a bad reputation.
Northeast is trained in installing and servicing all makes and models of pumps our two primary lines are Pentek/Berkeley and Gould’s. We install and service 4” and 6” submersible well pumps from 5 GPM to 125 GPM and from a ½ hp pump to 50 hp pumps all makes and models. Larger pumps are available upon request.
