Water pump electricity


Where I live, the water pressure from the water utility is very low (About 8 PSI average). I am considering getting a jet pump with a 33 gallon pressure tank and a 400 gallon water tank for when there is no water at all. Electricity is a major concern because it is very expensive in my area, about $0.25 a KW. I use on average about 100 gallons of water a day.

Which type of jet pump or full setup in terms of HP and Watts would you guys recommend for my setup that would save me on electricity?

Most people around here just use a 1/2 HP well jet pump with the pressure tank and water storage tank. I've been reading much on Cycle Stop Valves which use a small pressure tank and Variable Frequency Drives, but that seems a little...

Let's pause for a moment to give thanks to one sorely underappreciated, seldom-considered auto part. We are referring to the humble but essential, mechanical water pump. Without it, the engines in our cars would quickly overheat and possibly grind to an ugly, costly halt.

Wonderfully clever as they are, mechanical water pumps do come at a cost. We're going to look at a different type of water pump, one that runs on electricity. The benefits of using one just might, ahem...shock you.

To understand why anyone would want an electric water pump, first you need to understand the purpose and drawbacks of a traditional, mechanical water pump. Technically, it's a coolant and anti-freeze pump, but we'll call it a water pump for short because that's how most auto technicians refer to it.

The traditional water pump is a belt-driven (or sometimes cam-driven) component. In other words, it takes mechanical, rotational energy from the engine -- provided in the form of a...

So just how do we get electricity from water? Actually, hydroelectric and coal-fired power plants produce electricity in a similar way. In both cases a power source is used to turn a propeller-like piece called a turbine, which then turns a metal shaft in an electric generator, which is the motor that produces electricity. A coal-fired power plant uses steam to turn the turbine blades; whereas a hydroelectric plant uses falling water to turn the turbine. The results are the same.

Take a look at this diagram (courtesy of the Tennessee Valley Authority) of a hydroelectric power plant to see the details:

The theory is to build a dam on a large river that has a large drop in elevation (there are not many hydroelectric plants in Kansas or Florida). The dam stores lots of water behind it in the reservoir. Near the bottom of the dam wall there is the water intake. Gravity causes it to fall through the penstock inside the dam. At the end of the penstock there is a turbine...

I saw different designs for water pumps with out electricity but the difference is that I am using it indoor and it is from still water.

In the below image you will see my idea for pumping water without electricity that I gathered from the internet. I would like to know several things about it. Such as.

How to know what will the flow of the water be? What needs to change to increase or decrease the water flow.

It works by always keeping the water pressure equal inside the upper tank.

I believe that every time you open the tap the water will flow through to keep the pressure equal.

You can also refer me to other ideas if you have any.

The idea came to me from the below link. It is the same as the one in the 2nd link but without the free energy...

- Piston pumps – Positive displacement pump can pump in high head situations but at low flow rates. These pumps can be located above ground and used for low suction head (15-20 feet maximum) but high pressure (up to 100 psi) or located in the well with pumping depths to 600 feet. The piston pump uses a linear motion back and forth motion to displace water in a cylinder. As a piston is driven in one direction, water fills the chamber behind it. The water is forced into the system when the piston reverses directions and a check value closes the inlet to the pump chamber. Flow of water into and out of the chamber is controlled by check valves.

- Helical pumps – Used for pumping depths of 150 to 500 feet. Predominantly used for livestock watering. These pumps produce high head but low flow rates. Operates like an auger to force water up through the...

The gadget included in the above video is known as a Wirtz water pump, water wheel. It utilizes the vitality of streaming water to move water through a wound funnel as it twists, consequently ceaselessly moving water through the curls. As water travels through the curl, every section of water moves under weight to the following segment of water.

That keeps it moving with no sort of power to power it. Most watering system pumps are run electrically. Be that as it may, what happens if there’s an intrusion in our electrical lattice? Will our harvests endure and pass on?

This may be one of those advancements that we would prefer not to on the whole overlook.

A water wheel uses the energy of flowing water to move the water through coiled pipe and as it spins it continues adding water through the coils. Depending upon where you set the output pipes you can move water from a creek to your field without electricity.

This is a Wirtz water pump. With each revolution of the spiral, the scoop collects one-half the volume of the outer coil. As water is taken into the coils, each column of water moves under pressure to the next column of water. The water in each coil is displaced to provide a pressure head. And the cycle continues.

Pump Water Without Electricity

The water current moves through these coils. As the wheel turns, several small heads of water develop, one in each coil pushing water forward through all the coils…

Ram pumps have been around for many decades and are popular for two main reasons:
They need no external source of power -- the force of moving water gives them the power they need.
They are extremely simple, with just two moving parts.
The basic idea behind a ram pump is simple. The pump uses the momentum of a relatively large amount of moving water to pump a relatively small amount of water uphill.
To use a ram pump, you must have a source of water situated above the pump. For example, you must have a pond on a hillside so that you can locate the pump below the pond. You run a pipe from the pond to the pump. The pump has a valve that allows water to flow through this pipe and build up speed.
Once the water reaches its maximum speed, this valve slams shut.
As it slams shut, the flowing water develops a great deal of pressure in the...
