The Benefits of Using Submersible Pumps

When it comes to keeping water out of your Borehole or Mine, submersible pumps are usually the best choice. However, there are also a lot of other uses for Submersible Pumps.

Many of the benefits of submersible pumps are derived from the fact that they can be submerged in water. This presents a totally different dynamic than with other pumps. A submersible pump is sealed so that no liquid can enter the motor assembly.

The motor is usually sealed in an oil-filled compartment. It runs on electricity but insulated and sealed so that they present no electrocution risk. Still, one must be careful when standing in water and handling them.

Convenient and Portable

Submersible pumps are extremely convenient because they are usually small, light and portable. Most have a handle so they are easily carried anyplace they are needed.


Since a submersible pump is submerged in the water it is pumping, it is already “primed” and needs no priming. This saves a lot of hassle and cost, not to mention the maintenance involved if a pump that needs priming is run while dry this may result in breaking down of the pump or burn the wet end of the submersible pump resulting in spending a lot moeny repairing it or buying a new one.

Since the pump is already submerged in the Borehole water it is pumping, the pump doesn’t expend much energy with suction lift. This leaves more kinetic energy that can go towards moving the fluids through the outlet. Less energy means that the pump doesn’t have to work so hard, which helps with longevity.

Can be Used With Pressure Pumps

A pressure pump needs a supply of water to work and a submersible pump can be submerged into a lake or a well to provide water for a pressure cleaner.

Extremely Resistant to Corrosion

Because a submersible pump has to be hermetically sealed, they have to be made out of materials that are extremely corrosion-resistant, such as stainless steel. Also, the sealing process means that the inside isn’t exposed to oxidation or corrosive materials.


As we mentioned earlier, there are a lot more uses for submersible pumps than borehole. There are also some that operate while only half-submerged and some are designed for handling sewage and other solids.


Submersible pumps are electric; all you need to run one is access to an electrical outlet. Most come with long power cords, as long as 16 metres, ensuring that you always have access to power.

Space Saving

Any other kind of pump would have to be placed outside of the fluid you are pumping, taking up space. A submersible pump takes up no extra space except for the electrical cord. In your home, that means that the pump ends up in your borehole for as long can only be taken out of the borehole for repairs or maintains if not that you would even forget that the alternative water systems at your residence was installed by DrillForce Drilling.


The fact that the sump pump is sealed and submerged makes it much less of a safety risk to children than other pumps. A pump with moveable parts sitting outside of your sump pit or garage presents a risk to children and even to adults. You can also put a board over your sump pump to conceal it even further.

Maximum Flow, Minimum Noise

Since the pump is submerged, there isn’t nearly as much noise as with a pump that is operating out in the open. The water “dampens” or absorbs most of the sound. In addition, the parts are contained within a sealed unit, creating another barrier against noise.

Less Maintenance, More Durability

The factors we have mentioned here combine to produce a pump that needs almost no maintenance and is going to last a lot longer than other kinds of pumps.
