What size pump is required to get the job done?

Well pumps are typically rated by their horsepower (HP). The size of the motor is calculated by how much work it has to do and how much demand you will have. If your well is 150 feet deep, but the pumping level is

at 50 feet, you don’t need as much HP as if the well were at 150 feet and the pumping level were at 100 feet. In a similar vein, with a two story house – in which you would have to lift the water higher – you would require a larger HP pump to supply the requisite water needed.

What is a well screen?

If the bottom of the well is in sand and/or gravel, the well driller may install a well screen. The well screen is a metallic cylindrical sieve-like structure which is usually attached to the bottom of the well casing or other water intake areas.

What is a pump screen?

A pump screen is a combination of a coarse stainless-steel shield and a fine screen that completely covers the pump. This disallows sand and gravel particulates from entering your water feed stream. This does slow the gallons per minute (GPM) of the pump while still allowing enough water to supply the house.
