Submersible Pump Vs Jet Pump – 3 Tips That Will Convince You To Make The Change!

Here is some quick background info on the function of the submersible and jet pump.

PUMP BASICS 101-

The submersible pump and jet pump are both used to pump water from a well. The jet pump, either shallow or deep well, is used above ground. It uses an impeller and diffuser to vacuum out water into a pipe. If it is a shallow pump its ejector is above ground whereas the deep well ejector is submerged. The submersible pump is submerged in water near the bottom of your well. It uses existing pressure to push water to come to the surface and go into your home. Depending on the yield of your well and the needs of your water usage (household or industrial etc.) you might be faced with making a decision between jet pump or submersible pump.

My first tip involves saving time. The submersible pump saves you time because it is self-primed. A jet pump whether shallow or deep well (convertible) needs to be primed. It can be tricky because you have to get water into the jet pump without any air. This can take several attempts! A jet pump can also stop working because it has lost its prime. You may have to then get donor water from another source (like really nice neighbors) and replace the valves which are frequently to blame for loss of prime. This pump also will not build prime if there is an obstruction in nozzle, or the package or a leak on the suction side of the pump. Remember water for the submersible pump is right there conveniently at the pump itself. It goes to work immediately after you drop it in. Pushing the water to the surface effortlessly maintaining pressure and saving you installation and prep time!

My second tip involves saving energy. The submersible pump saves energy because it makes pressure 30% faster than the jet pump. The submersible pump is also saving energy by not having to fight gravity and atmospheric pressure like the jet pump does (and its not so quiet doing it ). This fight can create a high elevation between pump and water surface. This circumstance can cause cavitation which is serious damage to our jet pump. It can also cause overheating and surges which are both dangerous and costly. Remember jet pumps are limited to 1 1/2 hp for a given hp and flow rates of around 10 gpm at a depth of 50 feet. Submersible pumps caters to your water needs on demand regardless of how large the well is. That means more water for higher demand like garden ponds, sprinkler systems, horticulture, industrial and business pumping, just to name a few.

My third tip involves saving money. The submersible pump has a sealed motor and pump. It is practically maintenance free. The jet pump does not have a sealed motor or pump therefore, it can have corrosion inside the pump caused by fluid. There also can be leakage along the rotating shaft. The wear of the impeller can also be affected by suspended solids. These problems can be quite costly to repair. Not to mention the cost of the electricity running it. You can expect the initial cost of the submersible pump to be higher (gpm/hp factors in) but the life expectancy is longer than any other pump. One reason might be the cooler well water its submerged in protects the motor and its parts from higher temperatures. The submersibles also have a water inlet induction port at the lower end of the motor that cools it. In the long run, the submersible pump is an investment that will save you money.

Dog 101 Potty Training

Potty training requires patience and commitment to achieve the objective which is to inculcate good bio habits in your dog. In this way, both of you can co-exist healthily in a clean home. Once your pet is house trained, this will reduce the stress levels on you, your family and your dog.

When to Start Dog Potty Training

Generally, you can take puppies from breeders when they are around seven weeks old. Ideally you should start potty training when your furry friend arrives at your house. This is because if the dog does its business unsupervised, there will be more work for you to change the spot. A dog is drawn to the same spot due to the scent. This means that if you don’t like that spot you would need to wash that area well with enzymatic cleaner and spray with air fresheners so that there is no smell triggered for your pet to return to the spot.

How long it would take before a dog is potty trained is on a case-to-case basis as it can range from a few weeks to a few months. Factors that influence the duration are as follows.

  1. Dog breed
  2. Dog age
  3. Dog potty training history (for rescued dogs)
  4. Potty training methods

Recommended Routines

Below are some recommended routines to house train dogs.

  • Feed your dog at regular consistent intervals. This would lead to regular excretion timings. While the reason for removing uneaten puppy food after 10 minutes is different from feeding puppy guidelines, this act will also help to gauge the next toilet break time.
  • Take the puppy outside at regular intervals. Take him out first thing in the morning. Take him immediately after each meal as puppies tend to defecate soon after a meal. Take him out regularly like every couple of hours for a two-month-old puppy. If he is sleeping, let him continue sleeping and take him out when he has awakened. Before retiring for the night, do take him out.
  • Guide him to the same spot. Use a leash to walk the dog to the area.
  • Use short, simple words to encourage the excrement process. Do not rush him though. Remember even puppies can feel your energy.
  • Praise him when he has accomplished his mission of pooping in the same spot. You would need to stay with him so that you can provide instant correction by saying “No” if he attempts to go to another area. Praise should be provided instantly so that he can associate why he got rewarded.
  • Remove the water receptacle when the puppy retires for the night. This is important especially for puppies sleeping in crates because puppies don’t really want to defecate and sleep in the same place

Potty Dog Training Guidelines

Confine your puppy to give you more control. This can be done by putting them in a crate/ enclosure or having them on a leash and securing the leash.

It is important to know the duration of confinement to prevent getting any bladder infections and unknowingly inflicting unnecessary cruelty. In general, a puppy’s bladder control improves an additional hour every month. This implies that a two-month-old puppy can hold on without the need of relieving itself for two hours.

Even by following the routines properly, there will be times when your dog might have an accident. If this happens, do not shout and punish the puppy. Dragging the puppy to the accident spot and shouting at them would not work as they are not old enough to realize what they did wrong.

If a dog does not urinate or defecate in the house for two months, he is considered house trained.
