Do you live or work in an area where there is no drinking water supply? Do you want to use the water from your well to irrigate your property? Whatever the reason why you need a water pump, the most important thing is to know how to choose the right well water pumps.

Knowing which pump is best for your installation will depend on several factors: the depth of the well and the amount of water you need to draw from it. Therefore we will talk about the most important types of water pumps for wells and their features below.

Submersible water pumps for wells

The submersible motor pumps are placed in the water and push it upwards. We offer different types of submersible pumps. On the one hand they are used for shallow wells (20-30 meters), on the other hand they are specially designed for deep wells, which make it possible to pump the water up to 300 meters.

This type of pump works with electricity that can be drawn from the commercial grid, a generator or solar panels.

Centrifugal water pumps for wells

Centrifugal water pumps suck water from the surface and push it to its destination. These pumps are ideal for very shallow wells (about 6 meters). They run on electricity, petrol or diesel and are very easy to assemble, disassemble and transport.

Solar pumping for wells


Solar pumps are a good alternative for properties or huts with no electricity, or to save money on the electricity bill. The only problem with this type of pump is that its performance is not optimal on cloudy or rainy days.

The most important factor in choosing water pumps for wells is knowing how deep the water we need to draw is and how much water we normally consume.
