The two most popular types of pumps used for private well systems or low-flow irrigation applications are jet pumps and submersible pumps. Jet Pumps are mounted above ground and lift the water out of the ground through a suction pipe. A Jet Injector consists of a matched nozzle and venturi. The nozzle receives water at high pressure. As the water passes through the jet, water speed (velocity) is significantly increased, but the pressure drops. This action is the same as the squirting action you get with a garden hose when you close the nozzle. The much-increased water speed plus the low pressure around the nozzle tip is what causes suction to develop around the jet nozzle. The water around a jet nozzle is drawn into the water stream and carried along with it. If you have any additional questions give us a call today!
