Understand  Submersible water pumps and prices before you buy

Water needs to be moved from one point to another and hence the need for water pumps. Submersible  pumps are designed  in a way that they can be immersed  in a well or container which has  the liquid  to be pushed. This article focuses on submersible pump price in Kenya.

Types of submersible pumps

Oil filled pumps

The motors of these pumps are filled with oil. The pumps are in agricultural irrigation, lifting water in wells and industrial water supply. The pumps move clean water like river, pool and lake water.

Mixed and Axial flow pumps

These pumps are widely used in river drainage, sewage drainage and water treatment in the pump station. The pipes of pumps have a tipple seal system to prolong the life of pumps from leaking.

Stainless steel pumps

These pumps can frequently move warm and acidic water. They can also move fresh water. They have a very high acidic resistance.

Uses of submersible pumps

Deep well drilling

Submersible borehole pumps are very useful when drilling wells. These pumps can pump water from great deepness to water holding tanks.

Irrigation systems

Submersible borehole pumps can be handy in providing water for irrigation systems.  They can be useful in agricultural as well as industrial irrigation.

Industrial pumping

Submersible pumps can be used in pumping excess water from construction sites. They can also be used to pump liquid wastes.

Sewage pumping

Submersible pumps are also useful in pumping out septic system.  The fluid is moved to storage tanks from where it is taken to the treatment facility.

Oil industry

Submersible pumps are used to pump oil from the oil wells to holding facilities.

Advantages of submersible pumps

They are efficient.  This is because you don’t need a lot of energy to move water into the pump. Water pressure pushes water into the pump and hence saves the pump’s energy.

Submersible pumps are quite. They produce a small quantity of noise because they are submerged in water.

Compared to other pumps, submersible pumps are safer because all harmful parts of the pumps are stored under water.

Submersible pumps can handle both solid and liquid materials.

Submersible pumps do not need to be primed before operating.  This saves time and also reduces the risk of overexertion.

Disadvantages of submersible pumps

You can not notice pump failure quickly because it is submerged  in water.

High cost. Submersible pump price in Kenya is high as compared to non-Submersible pumps. This is because of their technical nature and security  measures required.

It is very difficult to identify and amend destructions like a rupture. If the pump loses its integrity and starts to leak, the parts of the pump may corrode without being noticed since it is submerged. The damages as a result of corrosion may be noticed too late.

In conclusion submersible pump price in kenya is high compared to other pumps. This is because of it’s technical nature. It is important to buy a submersible pump which is suitable for your need.
