Jet Pumps for Well Systems

Jet Pumps may be used on a shallow or deep well. These well systems are typically set above ground and can draw water from a depth of 1 to 200 feet. Learn more or schedule a Jet Pump well system installation in Maryland, Virginia, or West Virginia today by calling Tri-County Pumps (301) 660-2672.

Jet pumps are commonly used in various applications that require the transfer of water from one location to another, such as bringing water from a source to a destination. If your home in Maryland relies on well water, you may need a jet pump system to extract water from a well that is deeper than 25 feet.

Jet pumps are powerful well systems that operate similarly to jet engines. Water is propelled through a venturi valve, which speeds up the flow of the fluid by constricting it in a cone-shaped tube. This creates an area of lower water pressure, enabling the overall pressure to increase and create a pressure differential. The increased “jet” power of these pumps allows them to move water at a higher PSI, making it possible for them to pull water from depths of over 200 feet, depending on altitude.

There are two types of jet pumps:

Shallow Well Jet Pumps

Choose a shallow well jet pump if you need to pull water from a depth of less than 25 feet. Shallow well jet pumps usually require less than 1 horsepower and can’t move water to long distances.

Deep Well Jet Pumps

Choose a deep well jet pump if you need to:

  • Pump water upward more than 25 feet deep such as from a well.
  • Move a large volume of water quickly like from a swimming pool.
  • Move water long distances such as from one water source to a holding tank located across a field.

Deep well jet pumps typically have a horsepower greater than 1hp and are able to pull water up from greater depths than a shallow well jet pump.

What is the Difference Between a Deep Well Jet Pump and a Convertible Jet Pump?

The terminology of “deep well” and “convertible” jet pump well systems can be confusing since they refer to the same type of pump. In fact, all jet pumps are both “deep well” and “convertible” as they have the capability to be used for either a shallow well or a deep well.

Jet pumps designed for deep wells are able to draw water from depths exceeding 25 feet, and sometimes reaching up to 200 feet. Areas in Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia with higher altitudes may require jet pump installed in their homes. Call Tri-County Pumps for Jet Pump Installation and Service at 301-660-2672.
