Watering Your Livestock Using a Submersible Well Pump

By Edited Jan 11, 2016 0 0

Farms and ranches have more uses for a submersible well pump that almost any other type of property. Well water is inexpensive, normally readily available and much needed for the day to day operation. A few well placed wells around a property can alleviate a lot of unnecessary hauling of water to where it is needed.

Wells provide a steady supply of water to keep your animals healthy and completely hydrated. This is particularly important during the heat of summer. Livestock is no good to you if they are sickly looking or under watered.

Even if it is just filling water troughs on a twice a day basis, a submersible well pump is a labor saving device most ranchers cannot do without. Filling these from a standard size water hose takes almost as much time as hauling it. With the right pump and pipe sizing, this can cut the time down by more than half.

Farmers irrigating fields and crops know well the benefits of having these pumps installed. A good pump can either run an irrigation system overnight without any issues or flood a small orchard in only a few hours. None of the water is wasted and the crops and trees produce much better this way.

These submersible well pumps all run on electricity, standard 110V current, so no special power needs are required. Even if the well is remote on the property and it is not cost effective to run power to it, a small generator on site or even out of the back of a truck should do the trick. If the need for a larger pump is called for, then an electrical line will have to be run to carry enough power to run the pump.

Whether its livestock or live plants, a good submersible well pump will be an invaluable tool in the day to day operation of your farm or ranch. These pumps make life so much easier when it comes to watering. With many sizes to choose from, your needs should be well met (pun intended).
