We will also take a look at the main uses of electric water truck pump and how they have evolved over time. So, if you are curious about the technology behind these pumps, just keep reading.
How Electric Water Pumps Work
Electric water pumps are powered by electricity, which is a great option for those who want to be environmentally conscious. These pumps can be used to move water in or around a home or business, and they are very versatile in their uses. If you’re considering installing an electric water pump system at your property, here’s what you need to know!
The Basic components of an electric water pump
There are three basic components that make up an electric pump system: the motor, the casing, and the impeller. The motor is what actually moves the water through the system; it’s powered by electricity, which comes from either a wall outlet or solar panels on your roof. The casing houses all of these components and keeps them safe from outside elements like dirt and debris (you’ll need to clean this part regularly). Finally, there’s the impeller—this is what actually pumps water through your pipes once all of those other parts have been put together properly!
How electric water pumps move water
The mechanics of an electric water pump are fairly straightforward: they use electricity to spin a turbine or impeller, which then moves water through pipes and into your house. The turbine or impeller itself is connected to two shafts: one that runs vertically and one that runs horizontally; when the shafts spin together they create suction pressure within the pipe system that moves the water up from its source (such as a well) into your house where it can be used for drinking or bathing purposes.”
Types of Electric Water Pumps
While electric water pumps come in all designs, shapes and sizes, it is important to understand their differences and how they fit your needs. In this section, we’ll provide a brief description of 3 of these pumps, how they compare and how they work, namely: submersible pumps, centrifugal pumps, and positive displacement pumps.
Submersible pumps are the most common type of pump used in residential homes and commercial businesses. They work by using a spinning impeller to force water through the pump’s body and out its discharge port. The process is similar to how a toilet works—the spinning impeller creates a suction that pulls dirty water into the pump’s body, where it’s cleaned by internal components before being pushed out of the discharge port.
Centrifugal pumps are often used when there isn’t room for a submersible pump, such as in large industrial settings where there is ample space for them to be installed above ground. Centrifugal pumps work by harnessing kinetic energy from moving parts to create pressure within the pump’s body, which forces dirty water through an intake port before being discharged through another port on the opposite side of the body (usually positioned above ground).
Positive Displacement pumps
Positive displacement pumps are the most common type of electric water pump. They are also known as constant-displacement pumps because they can deliver a set volume of water for each revolution.
Unlike centrifugal pumps, which draw water into a rotating impeller and force it out through a discharge pipe, positive displacement pumps move water through the entire pump without relying on any movement outside the pump’s casing. The impeller draws in a small amount of water at its center and pushes it out through an outlet opening. This action creates a vacuum behind the impeller that pulls in more water to replace what has been pumped out, maintaining constant flow throughout the entire cycle.
It’s clear that electric water pumps are a necessity for any home. They provide a safe and efficient way to transfer water from one location to another. Electric water pumps can be purchased in a variety of different forms, so it’s important to carefully consider the factors that matter most when choosing your preferred model. This can include things like size, design, power supply, and cost.

Designed for plumbing systems without a recirculation line, the ecocirc wireless instant hot water system from Bell & Gossett, a Xylem brand, uses electronically commutated motor (ECM) technology to operate using as little as 20 watts of power.
Installed under the sink, the system’s battery operated paired valve, equipped with an onboard temperature sensor and wireless RF transceiver, communicates with the circulator pump mounted to the water heater or hot water source to deliver temperature controlled hot water.
The ecocirc wireless instant hot water system increases energy savings through advanced technology that turns the pump on only when hot water needs replenishing. The lead-free system also contains a built in 24-hour timer with an optional push button start to adjust the system to the user’s schedule.
A paired valve is installed under the sink, or other water outlet, farthest away from the water heater, where hot water takes the longest to arrive. The valve is battery operated and equipped with an onboard temperature sensor and wireless RF transceiver and communicates with the circulator pump mounted to the water heater or hot water source.
The ecocirc wireless is lead-free and features technology that turns the pump on only when the system needs to be replenished with hot water. The pump’s unique microprocessor provides the ECM the precise frequency and voltage for maximum efficiency. A few of the key features and benefits include:
• Easy installation, no electrical outlet required under the sink
• Built-in 24-hour timer which allows system to adjust to users schedule
• Operated via wireless RF communication, ranging approximately 150 Feet
• Temperature and timer controlled
• Optional push button start
• Valve operates using two (2 AA batteries)
• Maximum fluid temperature of 203°F/95°C
• Maximum line pressure of 145 PSI

The new $1.3 billion Levi’s® Stadium in Santa Clara, California, home to the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers, is a model of sustainability. With a 27,000-square-foot green roof, owners’ suites decked out in reclaimed wood, and farm-to-table concession offerings, the 68,500-seat stadium includes a wide variety of “green” features. But none of these is more crucial to its operations than the use of recycled water for its flushing and irrigation systems, which account for 85% of the facility’s water usage.
The recycled-water pressure booster system built by California Hydronics Corp. (CHC) using Bell & Gossett pumps, heat exchangers and other products, taps into the Santa Clara Valley Water District water recycling system. This eliminates the need to use fresh water to flush toilets and to irrigate the natural grass field, green roof and other areas, which is of particular concern in drought-ridden California.
“A recycled-water pressure booster system ensures adequate water is available when everyone goes to the bathroom at one time, like halftime at a football game,” said Mark Handzel, Vice President, Product Regulatory Affairs, and Director, HVAC Commercial Buildings. The “Super Flush,” a test of the system, was conducted in April 2014 to make sure the system was fully operational before the stadium opened. During the test, hundreds of workers and volunteers simultaneously flushed every toilet and urinal and turned on every sink in the stadium for about 30 minutes.
There are twice as many toilets in Levi’s® Stadium as there were in Candlestick Park, the 49ers’ former stadium, and the expectation is for significant water savings due to more efficient infrastructure. According to stadium water assessment estimates, the system will save more than 42 million gallons of water per year.
All of the Bell & Gossett products included in the stadium’s building systems are noted for their efficiency and were selected by Turner-Devcon, who drafted design development drawings and specifications, along with the support of M-E Engineers. Plumbing contractors ACCO and FW Spencer completed the permit packages, which included the selection of Bell & Gossett centrifugal pumps and Goulds Water Technology e-SV multistage centrifugal pumps for the recycled-water pressure booster system.
“The system needed to be both innovative and high-performing,” said Kevin Coyne, vice president, FW Spencer. “Based on our successful history working with CHC, we knew the Bell & Gossett products would deliver on both fronts.”
ACCO, the mechanical contractor for the project, procured a variety of Bell & Gossett products, including Rolairtrol air separators, Series 60 inline pumps, 1510 end suction base mounted pumps, and VSX double suction pumps for the hydronic systems. Xylem Bell & Gossett brazed plate and GPX gasketed plate and frame heat exchangers were specified and supplied for the project, offering the highest level of thermal efficiency for the condenser water system.
The stadium received Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification, a first for an NFL stadium. “Every detail regarding environmental sustainability was addressed during planning and construction,” said CHC’s Ken Carey. “This project is a bellwether for others to follow.
