How Does A Water Pump Work?

So a water pump is an electrical device designed to take the already existing water and increase the rate at which that water is moving. When the water is speeding up in the pump, the device is creating low pressure at the intake, therefore creating a vacuum. As the water is coming from the low-pressure side, the water outlet undergoes a higher pressure and the pushes the water with that force.
