A jet pump is designed for delivering water from a well, lake or stream into a home or cottage for domestic purposes.
There are two types of jet pumps:
- Shallow Well – The water level is less than 25’ (7.6m) below the pump, one pipe goes into the water.
- Deep Well – The water level is more than 25’ (7.6m) below the pump, two pipes go into the water.
If a deep well jet pump is required a convertible (shallow or deep well) jet pump is most often used.
