Shallow well jet pumps will provide high pressure water. Shallow well pumps normally use a single suction line which draws or lifts the water from the shallow well or water source which can be also be surface water. A shallow well jet pump is used when you wish the water pump to be situated above ground rather than use a submersible pump underground.
Shallow well pumps are very versatile pressure pumps and can be used just to transfer clean water, household water supply, garden watering and sprinklers, irrigation, stock watering and wash down applications around the farm.
A well is defined as a hole which has been dug, bored, driven or drilled into the ground to retrieve water from it. It is a shallow well if it is under 50 feet deep and a deep well if it is over 50 feet. Bearing in mind most shallow well pumps will suck up to 8m. Deep well pumps will suck from 7.5m to 50 metres.
