EDDY Well Point Pumps

A Well Point pump, also known as a dewatering pump, is a pump system used to remove and manage groundwater in construction sites, agricultural fields, or any location where the water table needs to be lowered, either to make working conditions safer or to prevent groundwater interference with the construction or excavation process.

Well Point Pump Basics:

Setup: The system consists of closely spaced small-diameter wells (well points) connected to a common header pipe. This header is, in turn, connected to one or more well point pumps.

Operation: When the pump operates, it creates a vacuum in the header pipe, drawing water out of the ground through the well points.

Applications: Well point systems are effective in soils where the water table is shallow and can be used for excavations of up to 6 meters deep.

Why EDDY Pump Self-Priming Pumps Are Ideal for Well Point Systems:

Self-Priming Capability: One of the main advantages of EDDY Pump self-priming pumps is that they can automatically prime themselves. In well point applications, they can handle air-water mixtures effectively without manual priming, making setup and operation more efficient.

High Solids Handling: EDDY Pumps are known for handling high solids without getting clogged. In a dewatering scenario, sand, silt, or other debris is common. EDDY Pump’s design ensures continuous operation even in such conditions.

Low Maintenance: EDDY Pumps require less maintenance than other pumps due to their robust design and ability to handle abrasive materials. This translates to reduced downtime and increased productivity.

Efficiency: EDDY Pump technology is designed to pump a higher volume of material with less wear. This results in longer pump life and less energy consumption.

Versatility: EDDY Pumps come in various sizes and can be used in various dewatering applications, making them ideal for diverse job sites.

Durability: Built with heavy-duty materials, EDDY Pumps are made to last and withstand challenging conditions often found in well point dewatering scenarios.
