WHAT IS A BOREHOLE PUMP?
A borehole pump is used to extract water from a borehole. Boreholes are narrow shafts drilled vertically into the ground. The holes are made using a drilling rig that creates a borehole with specific dimensions so that the borehole pump can fit through with very little clearance on all sides.
How does a Borehole Pump work?
Because borehole pumps come into direct contact with minerals in the soil, they are typically made of corrosion resistant materials. Borehole pumps consist of two main components: a foot part that houses the pumping mechanism and makes contact with the water that is to be pumped; and the head part, which serves as the weight-bearing portion and the outlet for the water
Where are Borehole Pumps used?
Borehole pumps are used in a variety of fields including irrigation, municipal water supply, construction, mining, and industry.
Can borehole pumps be used in a well?
Yes. Borehole pumps can be placed vertically or horizontally, however, your pump must be equipped with a cooling jacket. A cooling jacket is a special device in a shape of a tube which function is to cover your pump. It is practically an imitation of a borehole. This type of pump requires water to swirl around it for proper cooling. If the well pump is placed in standing water, it may overheat and cause irreversible damage.
