What is a 2-line jet pump?

A 2-line jet pump uses two pipes, 1 smaller (down pipe) and 1 larger (up pipe) to pump water through a venturi in the jet assembly that is down in the well. Some 2-line jet pump systems, particularly for low yield wells, may add a tailpiece below the in-well jet assembly, going down as far as another 34 ft.

How does a 2-line jet pump work?

A 2-line jet pump uses a venturi valve at the bottom of its pair of water pipes (water down one and more water up the other) to bring up water from the bottom of a well or from a pickup point in a lake or water tank.

How do you prime a 2-line jet well pump?

To do this, shut the pump’s control valve after filling the pump casing and suction line with water. Run the pump, keeping its priming plug loose. This process gets rid of trapped air inside the pump. Repeat the process until smooth water flows around the prime plug, and precharge the pressure tank.

What is the difference between a jet pump and a convertible jet pump?

Shallow Well Jet Pumps can pump water from 0′ to 25′ deep. Convertible Well Jet Pumps pump water from 0′ to 90′ deep. A Convertible Well Jet Pump can operate between 0′ to 25′ with a shallow jet well nozzle or between 25′ to 90′ deep with an ejector assembly.

What type of pump is used in houses?

These are the main types of water pumps: Submersible Pumps – These can be completely submerged in the water of a borewell or an open well. Compressor Pumps – These are used to move the water where water yield is less and can be used even in loose soil areas.

Why is the water pump not working?

Check the breaker or fuse box. Inspect your breaker box and see if the breaker has tripped, and if it has, then reset it and you should restore power to the pump. If the breaker trips again, then there is an electrical or mechanical issue with the water pump, which will require a professional plumber.

Why is the water pump pressure low?

Sometimes what seems like low water pressure is actually low water volume, where less water is making it through the pipes than had been flowing previously. The cause could be clogged pipes or a clogged well casing from a buildup of sediment and minerals. It could also be an improperly placed well pump.
