Hand Operated Water Pumps
We Install Water Hand Pumps In North Central Florida For Residential, Agricultural & Community Needs
If you live off-the-grid and beyond the reach of a municipal water supply, something to think about is how to source clean water to your home. There are many well-and-pump combinations, but one of the most affordable and dependable systems is hand operated water pumps. Hand pumps can be used as either the primary water pump or as a backup system for a motorized well pump. Hand pumps also come in different sizes to fit the capacity and depth of your well. At North Florida Water Systems Inc., we sell both classic and cutting-edge designs of hand pumps, as well as offer installation and maintenance. Contact our water well company in North Central Florida to learn more.
When you’re shopping for a manual water well pump, it’s best to let our experts assist you with choosing and installing the system. Plenty of pump companies sell their products online or off-the-shelf, but then leave it to buyers to figure out the sizing and installation. At North Florida Water Systems Inc., we not only sell water pumps, but we’re also experts in well drilling and pump repairs. That’s how we’re able to match you up with the correct size and design of hand pump for your well.
Any water pump should be compatible with the depth of the well, retrieve enough capacity of water to meet your needs, and be easily operated by you. Small details, such as the pipe diameter or handle length, can make all the difference when it comes to choosing the right hand pump. Our experts make sure the pump specifications fit your needs. Our professional installations let you trust the pump is installed correctly, and we can check the well and water quality at the same time.
Shallow Well Pumps
The definition of a “shallow” well varies depending on which well drilling company in North Central Florida you ask. Typically, a shallow well has a static water level of no deeper than 25 feet, while many are shallower than 20 feet. The force needed to operate a water pump is determined by suction, or the distance between the well water and the center of the pump. Since shallow wells require only moderate suction, shallow well hand pumps are fairly easier to operate and can be used as the primary pumps.
Deep Well Pumps
Deepwater wells are usually deeper than 35 feet, and sometimes they extend much further than that. At those depths, strong suction is required to bring water to the surface through pumps, which is the reason deep well hand pumps typically have long handles and small diameter pipes — the smaller the diameter, the greater the lift (pumping strength) but the lower the capacity. In many cases, hand pumps installed on deep wells are used as backup systems for motorized pumps.
Many playgrounds, dog parks, and community amenities throughout rural North Central Florida depend on public wells for their water supply. At North Florida Water Systems Inc., we install hand pumps to fit the needs of our local communities. Whether a pump is part of a creative and fun exhibit where children play, or it’s a vital source of clean drinking water for families, we have affordable hand pumps for water wells to meet all needs and budgets.
