Frequently Asked Questions about Bore Pumps

Bore Pump FAQ's

AUTOMATICALLY FILL YOUR TANK FROM YOUR BORE

Most people would like their bore pump to start when the water level drops in the tank and the pump to stop when the tank is full. For automation of the system, the following systems can be used.

• A Float Switch in the tank can monitor the water level.
• Water Level Probes can be installed in the tank to monitor the water level.
• A Double Ball Float in the water tank.

For more information on “What you need to do to automatically fill your water tank directly from your bore” then you will need to visit my blog page “ How to Automate Filling your Water Tank from the Bore”.
You will find all my BLOGS in the black FOOTER section at the bottom of all pages, under INFORMATION.

CALCULATING PUMP HEAD

When selecting any pump, you will need to know the ‘Total Head’ and the ‘Flow Required’.

The total of the above 3 things will give you your ‘Total System Head Requirement’ in meters.

1. The Static Head, also known as Vertical Lift, is the height (below ground and above ground) that water has to travel as it moves through your discharge pipe.

2. Frictional Loss – As water flows through your discharge pipe, friction is created, from water rubbing against the inside of the pipe which slows down the water flow. The length of the pipe, the internal diameter of the pipe and the amount of elbows and bends in a pipe all affect the pipe friction. Dirty water such as grey water and sewage has a different pipe friction to clean water.

3. Discharge Pressure Required at the discharge outlet pipework.

For more information on “Calculating Total Head” then you will need to visit my blog page “ How to Calculate Total Head”.

HOW TO READ A FLOW CHART TO WORK OUT WHAT BORE PUMP I NEED

There are 2 things we need for the selection of submersible bore hole pumps:

1. Total System Head required
2. Litres Per Minute (LPM) required

Learn how to select a suitable bore pump by reading the flow charts.

SUCKING WATER UP FROM AN UNDERGROUND TANK

Most standard pressure pumps will have a suction depth.  I have included the suction depth in the ‘Description’ of every pressure pump on this site. 

Keep in mind that this is a maximum suction depth.  This means that the flow (litres per minute) will reduce the greater the depth. 

When selecting a pressure pump you should add your suction depth (in meters) to the head performance of the flow chart.

For more information on this topic and to see the different types of surface pumps that are able to suck water up from underground, please see my blog page “Sucking Water from an Underground Tank“.

Frequently Asked Questions about Sewage and Sump Pumps

Sewage & Sump Pump FAQ's

WHICH SEWAGE EJECTOR PUMP DO I NEED?

If there is not enough fall from the house to the septic system or septic line then a sewage ejector pump is needed.

The pump you need depends on what you are pumping.
Are you pumping raw sewage or gray water? Weather it is a cutter, grinder, septic or sump pump, the pump and model required will depend on the job it needs to do.
