How to fill the pool with well water?

If you have a house with a yard, you will find salvation from the summer heat in the pool. Nothing can cool and refresh you as effectively as jumping into the water and swimming, with small breaks, from morning to evening. Today, prefabricated pools are more affordable than ever, and they come in countless dimensions and sizes – from children’s to those in which an adult can swim unhindered.

Prefab pools are practical and easy to install. However, when it comes to filling or purifying water, especially if it is a large pool, things become a bit more complicated. If you were to fill a 10 x 5 x 1.3 meter pool with a garden hose, it would take days to fill it. You need a better solution. If you have a well, a water pump or hydrophore will make your life easier during the summer months.

Pumps and hydrophores for water are not only convenient for filling the pool. These devices are suitable for water supply, but they also purify water, pump out waste water, and are suitable for irrigation, drainage, drying of buildings or surfaces that are under water.

What are water pumps and what are hydrophores, how are they used and what are their purposes, you will find out in the following lines.

What are water pumps?

In order for your household to be supplied with water, the water in the system must be under a certain pressure. If you use tap water, this is of course not a problem. However, if you are using water from alternative sources, the water pressure may be questionable. Then you need water pumps. Water pumps are devices used to supply water that comes from a well, cistern or any other source, which is not a water supply.

Water pumps come in a wide range of types, the most popular of which are submersible (for extracting water from wells) and the so-called “rocket” pumps, high engine power, which are used to extract water from great depths – 100 meters or even more.

We distinguish models that work on electricity and motor pumps. Electric submersible pumps are most often used for filling swimming pools or watering gardens, as well as draining water from pools, wells or reservoirs, because they are easy to use and easy to maintain.

Motor pumps are used in hard-to-reach areas, where there are no electricity connections. Therefore, motor pumps have higher water pressure and flow, which means that they can be used on more serious irrigation or drainage sub-surfaces.

How do water pumps work?

A submersible pump pushes water to the surface, converting the rotational energy into kinetic energy and then into pressure energy. Water is drawn into the pump: first into the suction, where the rotation of the impeller pushes the water through the diffuser. From there it comes to the surface. The pump has a switch that automatically turns off the motor when the water level drops below the minimum.

The main advantage of submersible pumps is that they never need to be refilled, because they are already submerged in water. They are also very efficient because they don’t have to spend a lot of energy moving the water in the pump. The water pressure pushes the water into the submersible pump, which “saves” a lot of energy.

When buying a water pump, pay attention to the essential characteristics of the pump, such as motor power, water flow, diameter of suction and outlet, maximum depth of withdrawal and maximum height of the water column.

What are hydrophores?

Hidrofori za vodu are a type of water pump, whose purpose is to automatically supply the household with water from the well and maintain the water pressure in the system.

Choosing a hydrophore depends on the amount of water that the household needs, the flow of water and the power of the pump itself. The hydrophore maintains constant water pressure in the installations, which means that it can provide a constant water supply – in addition to filling the pool, the hydrophore will allow you to use well water for all other purposes in the household.

The hydrophore sucks up water from a depth of up to 8 metersbut if an injector is used with the basic device, the water extraction depth can be increased by 50%. The injector (jet pump) is an auxiliary device, which helps the main hydrant pump to extract water from depths greater than 7.5-8 m.

How do hydrophores work?

The hydrophore consists of a flow pump for water, a switch, a pressure gauge and an expansion vessel.

It is intended primarily for delivering water. Water is sucked from the source into a hydrophoretic bottle, which is a reservoir, and then delivered to the place of consumption. The pump motor turns on when the pressure drops in the installation or in the tank and draws a new amount of water. The hydrophore is turned off when the expansion vessel fills with water and reaches the required pressure, which protects the pump, pipes and complete installations.

As you can conclude from the attached, water pumps and hydrophores enable the use of water from alternative sources – primarily shallow and deep wells, which are part of many households in our region. By owning one of these devices, you will be able to fill your pool, purify the water and thereby reduce the frequency of emptying, and possibly empty the dirty water when the time comes. Water pumps and hydrophores provide stable water pressure, and will also be used to irrigate the garden or supply drinking water for the household.
