    How Do Electric Water Pumps Work?

    how water pumps work

    Every day when you brush your teeth in the bathroom, fill a glass of water in the kitchen sink, or turn on your washing machine, you are using water that has been pumped into your house somehow. However; moving water from one location to another isn't as easy as just connecting pipes and hoses together. That water must be forced through the pipes using a water pump.

    Most sump, effluent, and sewage pumps use centerfigual force to move water. The term centerfigual means to move something from the inside to the outside by a rotating body. An example of centrifugal force can be seen when you swing a bucket full of water, yet the water stays in the bucket. To create this force a driver is required. Electric motors are usually attached to an impeller inside of a valute case with a seal plate. These components all work together to move water and waste. The driver supplies the power necessary to rotate an impeller, or internal propeller. The valute case and seal plate direct the fluid to where it needs to go.

    One primary use for water pumps is to get rid of water that has entered into a basement or crawl space. Others use water pumps to get water from a well or to provide a constant supply of fresh water to livestock. Finally, many people need water pumps to overcome flooding caused by severe weather. Whatever your need, Tractor Supply Co. has a water pump for you.

    Hand pumps are another option for people wanting the ability to pump water from a shallow water well manually. Water hand pumps do not require any electricity to function and are powered by the suction force created when someone raises and lowers a lever by hand.
