Q: What is the maximum depth of a "shallow" well pump? I want to use an on top pump if possible and my well is 150 ft. deep

by Alfred H from Arkansas on April 03, 2013

A: Thank you for visiting Water Pumps Direct. In answer to your question, the maximum suction or depth that a shallow well pump can handle is 25 feet. A CONVERTIBLE JET PUMP can handle depths of up to 90 feet, max. In your case, the only option would be a DEEP WELL submersible pump, providing that you can get a 4" diameter pump into your well.

Worked While I Needed It
I got this on Dec 4 2012 (4 years ago today). My well did not produce enough water, so I had the submersible pump go into an 825 gallon holding tank on a timer so I could draw water slowly 24 hours a day. I used this pump to pump from the tank to my house. Due to issues with getting the timer configured, this pump ran without water a few time, and while it got hot, it did not fail. I used it for 2 years until the well would not produce water anymore, and we had to get a driller out.
Pros: Durable, Reliable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Very Resilient Pump
Lost water to the pump when the inflow pipes froze. The pump ran approximately 10 hours with no water flowing. It was VERY hot and smelled burnt when I discovered the problem. I thought for sure that it was ruined... but, after repairing the pipes, it pressurized the tank like normal and has been working since. I am really impressed with the durability so far.
Pros: Durable, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

Not Very Durable
I bought my pump 9 months ago. Out of the box, it was struggling to make the 40 psi I run to my residence. I use a 1500 gallon tank that I pull from and feeds the pump by gravity, so there is no pulling of water on the pump. The pump took some adjusting to make it run smooth and not have so many start and stops. I use a large pressure tank so it won't have to work so hard. Now the pump is locking up. Can't say why other than it's almost impossible to turn from the end. Because of the warranty,... more

Wore Out Quickly
Bought this pump after reading positive reviews on this website. Used it on a shallow well (about 12 feet deep) to provide water to boaters in a marina. Usage was high, but this pump wore out in less than 60 days. The water is not abrasive. My last pump lasted 7 years. Also, the inlet 1" NPT fitting was of poor quality. It was very difficult to stop the pump from sucking air. I had to use a large quantity of pipe thread sealant. Teflon tape would not work. I saw this on another... more

George,
Sorry to hear about the pump wearing out that quickly. Please keep in mind you purchased a residential grade pump that isn't designed for a commercial application.
