    Default Ever heard of "PumpChamber"

    I have a shallow dug well with water levels that range from 10" to 18". I currently use a jet pump which works well but presents freeze challenges in winter (Massachusetts). My water level is too low for a submersible which would make winterizing easy.

    I just found this site that advertises a sealed chamber for the sub which allows it to suck water down to a level of 2.5 inches while standing perfectly vertical!

    Has anyone ever heard of this product? If so is this too good to be true, or is there some pitfall.

    thanks,

    Why is it difficult to winterize your jet pump system?

    The pump is in a well house that is not heated and it tends to freeze up. But a sub would be down the well shaft below the freeze line.

    Never used one of those "PumpChambers" but, the Wellmanager people are good and I am sure it will work.

    Valveman,
    Thanks for the feedback. This product looks like the perfect thing for my wide shallow well. But I needed some type of positive assurance before getting it.
    I'll probably wait till I need to replace my jet pump before doing the switch, but might just get it to be "ready," since pumps rarely fail at a convenient time.
