Please guide me on how to select the capacity of submersible pump for my borewell. How does one calculate the required HP of the submersible pump for a particular application, what are the factors that should be taken in to consideration?

My borewell is 140 feet in depth, the overhead tank was fitted on building which is 70 feet from ground.  It is 6" dia borewell, bore to tank pipe dia is 1.25 . Can we use 1.5 to 2 HP 12 stage submersible pump.

Our borewell is 150 feet and now is stuck with mud. The submersible motor is unable to pump the water, and the motor is not coming out when it is pulled in the upward direction. Can you suggest some solution for this.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am from Bangalore, Karnataka. I have a borewell of 325 ft depth, with a submersible pump, which  has a piping upto 300ft and casing upto 45ft . I have been using this borewell for more than 10 years.   For last 5 days, when pumped there is clean water for less than 1  min after which the water turns muddy. After 7-10 min the water turns almost clean again. Please guide me.

Hello Everyone,

When I constructed my house in Thyagaraj nagar, Bangalore, we had a borewell dug and got water at the 160 ft and we went till 320ft. After one week  we put a pump and submersible motor(suguna 2 hp 20 stage) for 300 ft pipe and cable. We are getting a water exactly for 15 minutes and it stops. Again after 4-6 hours gap, if we switch on the motor again we will get water for 15 minutes only.

We have been suggested to put the pipe upto 285 ft instead of 300ft (cutting the 15 ft) and try, but still we are receiving the water for 15 minutes only.

I am constructing a house which has a roof area of 200 Sq. M. I would like to set up a borewell to direct the rain water run off from the roof to recharge groundwater. I am located in Delhi.  Here the first level of water may be reached at about 35 feet depth. Please advice.
