Submersible Water Pumps
The Various Uses For Submersible Water Pumps
Submersible water pumps are amongst the most used of all types of pumps, although the submersible pump is primarily used to transport water, there are also a multitude of other uses they can fulfil. Submersible water pumps are used in the agricultural sector, as well as in mining and even the public sector where they fulfil vital functions in the transport of raw sewage as well as the transport of potable water. Submersible water pumps surprisingly are even extensively used in side many suburban homes and as vital components for the supply of fresh, aerated water for use in the educational and entertainment industry.
Many people who have had the privilege of going to one of South Africa’s many world class aquariums do not spare a thought for the complex mechanisms that supply the fresh and aerated salt water to the animals that are displayed in many of the tanks. Some of these submersible water pumps are innovative solutions to the problem of keeping the marine creatures both healthy and comfortable, and the submersible water pumps ability to operate fully submerged in water due to its hermetically sealed casing is its most useful attribute specifically designed for this intricate matter.
The ability of submersible water pumps to supply aerated fresh water within the harsh environment is demonstrated by one of the most common uses of the submersible water pump and this is for supplying aerated water for home aquarium use. Miniature submersible water pumps are often just as hardy as the larger submersible pumps that are used in industrial sectors such as mining and agriculture and their ability to function for day after day with only a minimum amount of maintenance is testament to the inspired design of these pumps.
Submersible water pumps are used by many municipalities around South Africa as indispensable aids in providing fresh potable water to the ever growing suburbs around the country. As the number of people in urban centres around South Africa increases, so does the strain on these pumps. For this reason, even the low maintenance pumps need the attention of qualified service personnel every now and then.
Submersible pumps are also used for the treatment of sewage where the pumps’ ability to operate submerged in water is invaluable in the pumping of both liquid and semi solid waste. Submersible water pumps are also employed in the agricultural industry where they are used to control flooding as well as providing services in conditions of drought. The ability of submersible water pumps to operate under these very different conditions is a testament to the skills of the engineers that design these pumping solutions.
