Communities that are small or those that are located in rural areas usually don’t have access to public water systems. This means that homeowners in these neighborhoods don’t have a choice but to have a well on their property for getting fresh water to the fixtures in their homes.
If installed correctly, a well is a cost-effective and long-lasting solution for getting water to a home in an area where access to a public water system does not exist. These structures are drilled deep into the ground until water is accessed and then a pump and a variety of plumbing fixtures are installed to get the water from the well to the home.
As you can imagine, the need to maintain the well and keep it working properly are essential to preserve the productivity of the home progressing. In fact, tasks like brushing your teeth or washing dishes would be impossible if there was a malfunction with your well or well equipment.
If you notice any of the following signs from your well or well equipment, don’t hesitate to contact our office immediately:
Pump cycles too often or is continually running
Pump runs, but there is no water
Pump has short cycles and then cuts off
More often than not, these symptoms are a direct result of a well pump that is going out and needs to be repaired or even replaced. There are several types of well pumps. Each involves a different procedure for accessing and providing repair. Our expert plumbers have thorough knowledge and training on all of them.
Jet pumps used to be the only option for pumping water from the well to the home. While there are newer and more efficient options now available, many homes are still equipped with a jet pump. These systems are usually installed in the basement of a home and are equipped with either one pipe to access the water or two.
Submersible pumps are meant to float in the water of the well and will push the water out of the well and to the home. Because the water does not need to be drawn out of the well and to a pump in the basement of the house, these pumps are much more efficient and less noisy.
As with all mechanical systems that involve complex components and systems, your well and well equipment will greatly benefit from regular maintenance appointments. These service appointments provide an opportunity for our professional and skilled plumbers to thoroughly inspect your system for any signs of malfunctions before the situation escalates.
