Everything You Need To Know About Submersible Pumps

A submersible pump, as the name suggests, is a kind of pump that can be fully submerged in water. It pushes the water to the surface by converting rotary energy into kinetic energy into pressure energy using. It does so with the help of a motor. The motor is hermetically sealed and close-coupled to the body of the pump. 

One of the major advantages of submersible pumps is that it does not need to be primed because itis already submerged in the water. Also, these pumps operate very quietly as the water absorbs the noise. They are also more efficient as they do not require a lot of energy to suck in the water as they are submerged within.


There are a few disadvantages with submersible pumps as well. The seals of the pump can become corroded with time and when that happens, water seeps into the motor, making it useless. It must also be noted that these pumps are a bit difficult to repair.

Submersible tank pumps are designed to pump water upwards through the top of the roof. They are generally used in underground tanks where water needs to be pumped up to the roof surface.

Submersible pumps can be installed in above-ground tanks as well, however, you need to keep in mind that the rainwater will be plumbed in from the top. Also, if there is a need to directly access water from the tank, a tap can be installed or you can also choose to connect the rainwater to nearby taps.

It has to be made sure that the submersible pipe is fully submerged in the water because when the pipe is surrounded by water it helps it to cool the motor. If the pipe is out of the water, then it can overheat.

Some of the most common types of Submersible Pumps are –

·        Bladder Pumps

·        Well Pumps

·        Borehole Pumps

·        Grinder Pumps

·        Fountain Pumps

·        Utility Pumps
