Submersible water pump has a high energy consumption - Is there fault with the motor or is it normal
dear sir, recently i installed a 1hp (.75kW) 3" submercible pump in my home. total bore depth is 120' and the pump is installed at a depth of 100' below ground. output is at the ground level. after installation when the motor is running i noticed that the power consumption is 2kW(approx.). is this the fault on the motor or is it a normal value.
