Having a home in an area where there is not public water system access will typically mean the need to have a well on-site. While on a daily basis getting water from a well is not much different than getting it from a public water supply, there are some behind the scenes responsibilities for the upkeep of this system.
For instance, if there is a malfunction with your well system the activities in your home will come to an immediate stop as you will have very little or no water. This can be a distressing situation and knowing just who to call for quick and reliable service is essential.
Luckily, the homeowners of Mt. Kisco have been able to trust the thorough and highly-skilled well and well equipment services of the team at Call Clint Plumbing for years. In fact, our team maintains extensive knowledge and training about all of the latest in well and well equipment technology and tools.

Well Pump Options When choosing a new well pump for installation there are many different types and sizes, however, they all fall into either of two categories.
Jet pumps are the more traditional category and have been available for many years. Because they were the only option for the longest time they are still installed in many older homes today. These units are installed somewhere above ground, usually in the basement of your home, and work to suction the water out of the well through either one pipe or two.
Submersible pumps are the newer option and considered to be much more efficient. These units are installed underwater inside of the well and use a high-level of pressure to force water up and out of the well and to the home.
As you can imagine, the mechanics of well equipment is quite intricate but so too is the structure of the well itself. Because wells are drilled into the ground and a structure is built to contain the groundwater these systems are subject to the normal impact of the environment around them. Some signs that your well might be having trouble 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
The best way to avoid these issues and others is to have regular maintenance service to your well and well equipment. Our team provides thorough maintenance services to hundreds of Mr. Kisco area homeowners each year and has the experience and the equipment to assess any circumstance or condition. Our signature maintenance visits include:

- 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.
