Homes that exist in small communities or those that are rural located typically do not have the option of being hooked up to a public water system as access is not available. For these homes, the alternative is to have a well system installed on-site.
A well is essentially a long tunnel that is drilled into the ground until groundwater is accessed. Once the well is deep enough to find water, a pump is installed and the water is brought from the well to the house.
The process of pumping water from a well to your home involves various pieces of plumbing equipment and components, each of which are subject to breakdown or malfunction due to the environment around them.
Thankfully, the expert plumbers at Call Clint Plumbing have been trained in the specialized equipment and techniques that address well and well equipment troubles. Our plumbers can easily assess and inspect your circumstances and then provide you with recommendations for repair or replacement. We have extensive knowledge and experience working with all types, models, and makes of well pumps.
- 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
It is most likely that any one of these issues is the result of your well pump needing repair because it is not working properly or perhaps needs to be replaced. While there are many types of well pumps, there is no need to worry, regardless of the type that your home is equipped with our team can provide excellent repair or installation support.
It used to be that the only option for a well pump was one of the types of jet pumps, either shallow or deep and therefore these pumps exist in many homes today. The jet pump category of pumps comes in two different varieties, a shallow and a deep. The shallow pump only has one pipe that is installed in the water and the deep has two pipes.
When you have a submersible pump it is installed in the well water and floats there pushing water out and to the home. Rather than being located under the home or in a pump house somewhere on the property, the submersible pump has direct access to the water and therefore is much more efficient.
Anytime you have a complex mechanical system with many working parts it is important to have regular maintenance visits to check for minor issues before they turn into major problems. Our team provides thorough maintenance service that will keep your well and well equipment in the best working order.
- 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.
Regardless of what type of well pump you have or whether your service needs are for repair, maintenance, or replacement our highly-skilled plumber can help. With years of experience and special training in wells and well equipment we can make sure that your well is in top working order for years to come.
