If you have been living in a rural community for a while, you are likely accustom to additional responsibilities that go a long with that including having a well on your property to provide you and your family with the clean water needed to accomplish everyday tasks.
When access to a public water system is not available, having an on-site well system can be a terrific alternative. These options are designed to capture and pump groundwater to your home for clean water, and involve several plumbing components to get this accomplished.
Each of those plumbing components as well as the well itself are at risk for breakdowns due to the environment around them. Having a qualified and professional plumber on-hand to address these issues immediately is essential to ensuring there is not an interruption in getting water to your home.
The highly-skilled plumbers at Call Clint Plumbing have been a trusted resource for the homeowners of Fishkill and surrounding areas for many years. Each member of our team is specially trained and has several years of experience working on wells and well equipment. Some issues that might come up with your well are:
- Murky Water
- Pump cycles too often or is constantly running
- Pump runs but there is no water
- Pump has short cycles and then cuts off
Many times, these issues are caused by a well pump that is having trouble and needs to be repair or replaced. Depending on the types of well pump you have, this process can be fairly involved and our team has the training and the equipment to do this with very little disruption to you and your property.
It used to be that jet pumps were the only option for well pumps and many homes still have them installed. These systems are usually found in the basement of a house and have either one or two pipes running from the pump to the water inside of the well. Often times, homeowners choose to have their jet pump replaced as there are more efficient options.
More recently submersible pumps have become an option for getting water from the well to the home. These systems are more efficient in that they are installed to float right in the water of the well and then push water out and to the home. This eliminates the need to draw the water out of the pump and to another location before going to the home.
A major service that we provide that helps to limit the need for well equipment repair is well maintenance. It is recommended that your well be serviced once per year and a thorough well maintenance inspection will include:
- A flow test to determine how strong the water is coming out and give clues about how the pump motor is performing.
- An inspection of the equipment to make sure there isn’t any corrosion and everything is up to code.
- A test of the water to check for bacteria and levels of mineral deposits and sulfides.
Whether your well is showing signs of needing repair, you would like a newer more efficient well pump installed, or you simply need an annual service visit you can trust our team to provide you with the same level of superior service and exceptional customer care for every need. We are committed to treating each of our customers with respect and a majority of our client base come back to us time after time for all of their plumbing needs.
