Water Pump Guidelines
Work in progress…
In order to select the correct borehole pump, several factors have to be considered such as:
A) Water Dynamic level: Maximum distance between the water surface (while the pump is operating) and the ground level.
B) Operating Pressure: Required pressure for the system.
C) Total Head required: This is given adding the water dynamic level + the operating pressure required + the highest utilization point + the head losses of the pipes.
D) Flow Required: This is the amount of water we want our system to deliver at a certain pressure.
We intend a liquid without solids nor mug or viscous liquids.
Operating the pump for 48hr with a special cleaning product, it could be the easiest way to clean your pump without disassembling it. We recommend Wesso clean product, it is Ecological, effective and it can be also used to clean the borehole at the same time.

This depends on the power supply available. When it is possible, 3 phase solution are a better option.
A Control panel is the best way to control one or more pumps at the same time.
This could be due to a number of reasons:
a) The pump is dirty or partially clogged.
b) The pumps’ part are worn out
c) A leaking pipe
d) A frozen or blocked pipe
e) Unstable power supply
Installing fuses or voltage pick protectors such as the ZDS SLP, at the main supply.
It is usually 15%, but it depends on the pump motor.
The DRP as for Dry Running Protector avoid that your pump drain air instead of water causing a damage
The main limits are the followings:
Water conductivity, DRP does not work in rainwater or demineralized water.
Too many start and stop: the DRP protects the pump from Dry running, it can not work as a float.
No, DRP can not be assembled with an inverter.
Yes, you can use the DRP with a press control.
It depends on the application, please contact us at Peel Pumps for advice at email@example.com.
The air pressure should be checked at least once per year.
It depends on the pipe size and flow. Please check the link 2 for advise or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The submersible is normally immerged in underground water and it does not freeze, however the pipe connected to the pump can freeze. If this happens you can burn the pump.
You can solve this problem increasing the pressure in the pressure tank or installing a second multistage pump.
The main difference is that the stator in the encapsulated motor is encapsulated in resin, while in the oil cooled motor is immerged in dielectric oil.
Franklin Electric (NASDAQ:FELE) is a manufacturer of submersible pumps, submersible electric motors, and components for applications such as fueling systems and center pivot irrigation systems. The company was founded in 1944 in Bluffton, Indiana, USA and named in honor of Benjamin Franklin
ZDS Plants are set in Norther Italy in an high industrialized area, in Padua. They founded also DAB Pumps and sold it later years
Philip Parker Electrical Environmental Ltd custom design their control panels in UK, in Ramsbottom city in Greater Manchester area.
The general warranty terms is 24 months
Jet pump are self priming while multistage pump are not. If you need a self-priming pump, it is better to go for a jet pump, however, multistage pump deliver more pressure and flow. In order to pressurize a system, it is better to use a multistage pump.
A progressive cavity pump is recommended when pumping water containing impurities/solids. It trans-fers fluid by means of the progress, through the pump, of a sequence of small, fixed shape, discrete cavi-ties, as its rotor is turned
You can buy an EBoxx remote control service and panel or ask for eletrical engineers to build up for you. Contact PEEL Pumps UK
This is the process of collecting and storing rain water
It depends on the motor power, number of phases and length of cable. Please see the table link 3 for more information
Yes, it is good practise to use a dedicated cable for inverter
Yes, but special filters should be installed
A screen filter prevent your press control to run with sand
The maximum allowed water without licence is 20.000 litres per day
It really depends on the borehole
ZDS impellers are made of Noryl and fiber glass
Three phase motors with inverters are normally used with frequency inverter, or if the installation has a 3phase 220 V power supply

Stainless still ZDS Pumps have a larger range of products available, however, techno polymer versions when available are jus as good.
The average is 8 years. In these years many producers tries to make their product prone to fault to take advantage of earlier bought process. Please don’t be frauded and ask for experts. Also chose only high quality products in the well that can last 10 to 15 years with proper maintenance. ZDS Pumps and Sigma Pumps are the best in long lasting efficency
A Surface pump should last on average 10 years but again, it depends on how it is used and on the quality of the water pumped.
You can buy a Plug&Go. This is an automatic pump with an integrated capacitor and dry running protection. This is the only completely automatic borehole pump you can buy, max depth 50m
The main difference stays in the design of the impeller. A vortex pump handles better solid in the water but it has a lower efficiency
A Grinder pump specially designed for dirty water and solids.
TUV Rheinland Certificate TUVs are German consulting businesses that specialize in certifying compliance with various recognized safety and qualification standards. TUV stands for Technischer Überwachungsverein (Technical Inspection Association). They are worldwide famous and excellence in the industrial field.
Mei Index is a standard of efficiency that every pump manufacture has to respect.
Polyethylene pipe can be used for drinking water
The difference between a 2–wire and 3–wire pump is based on the type of motor that is used. A 3–wire single phase motor requires a control box with a starting capacitor. Because of this starting arrangement, the motor requires three “hot” leads (plus a lead for the ground connection) to operate correctly.
O2 is an oil cooled 2 wire single phase 230V motor
O3 is an oil cooled 3 wire single phase 230V motor
HTF is a Franklin 3 phase 400V motor
H3F is a Franklin 3 wire single phase 230V motor
H2 is an encapsulated 2 wire single phase 230V motor
SQ is a 3” borehole pump
You can find it reading the NOM kW values. The higher the value, the higher the consume.
It depends on the pump and on cost of electricity
A submersible pump works under water, while a surface pump it works on surface
Download the application on google play and set you pump using your mobile phone
It depends if single phase or three phase, but you can operate nearly every power
The National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC) is one of several organisations which regulates the training and work of electrical enterprises in the UK. The NICEIC is one of several providers given Government approval to offer Competent Person Schemes to oversee electrical work within the electrical industry. PEEL Pumps is NIC approved contractor.
Peel Pumps has a big range of pump in stock, it services a large number of landfill sites in UK with pumps and control panel.
We normally use ZDS Borehole pumps, Sigma pumps and sewage water pumps.
Normally to remove a borehole pump from your borehole, it needs to be pulled up. Contact us to help you with these tasks
You will need to determine the best pump size, depending on your water home needs. Pumps are rated in l/m (liters per minute). A typical 3- to 4-bedroom home requires 30-45 l/m. When determining your home water needs, add 4 l/m for every water fixture in your home
While average household water use in the UK is around 150 litres per person per day.
