Jet Pumps

Dahlman Pump & Well Drilling Inc. offers a wide variety of pumps to choose from. The majority of pumps that are installed in wells today are submersible pumps. We service submersible, shallow well and deep well jet pumps, in-line turbine pumps, and centrifugal pumps.


Submersible motors were developed in World War I. They were used to bore holes under enemy trenches to set explosives. After the war, engineers found another use for the motors.


The submersible pump is one of the most effective ways to deliver water from a well. The advantages of a submersible pump over any other type of pump are:


1. No pumphouse

2. No suction problems

3. Takes less horsepower to deliver more water

4. Less maintenance

5. Cheaper to install

6. No problems with freezing of pump


The average lifetime of a submersible pump is twelve years.


After the well is drilled, we will install the correctly sized pump and pressure tank to meet your family's needs. With over fifty pumps in stock, you have a wide selection to choose from. Brand names include J-Class, Goulds, Berkley, Sta-Rite, Red Jacket, and Flint & Walling.

A jet pump is another type of pump that can be used on a water system. Jet pumps are used for both shallow and deep well installations. A shallow well jet pump is used when the well is 25 feet deep or less. Over 25 feet is considered a deep well and requires a deep well jet pump.


Inside a jet pump water is pumped through a venturi or jet. As water passes through the jet, the velocity of the water increases creating a vacuum which pulls the water from the well. The advantages of a jet pump are the pump is above ground and generally less costly to repair. The disadvantages are:


1. Heated pumphouses

2. Very susceptible to suction leaks

3. Greater chance of freezing


The average lifetime of a jet pump is six to seven years.
