Water well pump

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A water well pump is a pump that is used in extracting water from a water well.

They include different kinds of pumps, most of them submersible pumps:

  • Hand pump, manually operated
  • Injector, a jet-driven pump
  • Mechanical or rotary lobe pump requiring mechanical parts to pump water
  • Solar-powered water pump
  • Pump driven by air as used by the Amish
  • Pump driven by air as used in the Australian outback
  • Manual pumpless or hand pump wells requiring a human operator

The pump replaces the use of a bucket and pulley system to extract water.
