Submersible water well pumps require submersible pump electric wire that can be placed in water without a problem. We offer
KALAS "ICE BLUE" submersible pump wire. The majority of submersible water well pumps require four wires for installation. There is a red, black, yellow and green ground wire, encased in a flat very flexible blue jacket to keep the wires compact going into the well. Order your submersible pump electrical wire today.  We stock heat shrink splice kits that protect the splice joint from water in the well. Dean Bennett Supply offers all the well parts you will need to complete your water well system.

 
SUBMERSIBLE PUMP ELECTRICAL WIRE


 

Submersible water well pumps need electric wire capable of use in under water situations. We stock 3 wire plus ground submersible pump cable, as well as 2 wire plus ground pump cable. The following chart shows the maximum distance in feet you can go from the power source, where the meter supplies the electrical power, to the submersible pump motor in the well. This includes the UF burial cable from the power source to the well head, and the distance down into the well with the submersible pump wire. If you are near the figure shown, moving up to the next size will help to protect against being on the limit. The chart is for use of AWG copper wire.

You may also need: Wire Cutters, Water Tight Wire Spice Kit, Electrical Tape and a Fuse Box
