Well Pump Services for Your Residential Property

Well pumps are used to draw water from beneath the ground where the water table is located. These systems work to set residential businesses and facilities up with an ample water supply without the need for a municipal water source. Most well pumps today are electrical and utilize suction to draw water through pipes. These well pumps typically fall into one of the following categories:

Jet Pumps

Shallow wells lying just below the surface are tapped with jet pumps, which suction the water from the well and transport it to your residential property. This system depends on the use of air pressure to move the water vertically, much like a straw in a glass of water. Unlike a straw, however, jet pumps utilize electric motors and centrifugal pumps for optimal efficiency.

Submersible Pumps

This type of well pump, like the jet pump, includes a water pump and a pump motor, as well as an internal check valve. Depending on your unique needs, a submersible pump may not come equipped with a pressure tank.

There are many different pumps to choose from within these two categories and selecting the right one for your property depends on your needs. Selection factors typically revolve around the depth of the water as well as the diameter of the well casing. Jet pumps work to pull water to the surface, whereas submersible pumps push water to the surface.

How to Determine the Right Pump Size for Your Business

After deciding which well pump is right for your residential space, we will then help you in determining what size of pump will be necessary. This is based on the water needs of your household. You will need to factor in how many people will be using the water, what the majority of your water will be used, and how many fixtures will be within your space. The fixtures to consider include faucets, hoses, showerheads, dishwashers, and clothing washers. Though your property will require a large enough pump to meet your water needs, too big of a pump can result in energy inefficiencies and poor performance. Our technicians are well-versed in this area and will make sure your property is set up with a pump that will be as efficient as possible in your space.

If you begin noticing a difference in your well water, whether it be taste, color, smell, or another factor, be sure to call on our team. We will evaluate the issue and discuss with you the best plan of action to fix the issue. Many times, the problem is as simple as needing to replace your systems well cap, but sometimes your well will require treatment from our professionals. As a team who truly values our customers, we have compiled together a list of easy maintenance tips, so business owners can be educated on what their systems need to maintain them properly. These tips include the following:

  • Check your system’s well cap to make sure it is fastened tightly and in good condition. We recommend a cap with an air-tight seal. This way, you won’t have to worry about bugs, debris, or other foreign particles making their way into your drinking water. Keeping your residential well clean and free of bacteria is key to keeping your water safe and refreshing. We recommend disinfecting your well once a year for proper upkeep.
  • We encourage residential property owners to practice caution when working, driving, or doing landscape work around the well site. If you do happen to nick your well’s casing when working around it, be sure to call on our team of technicians for quick repairs. In addition, we ask our customers to never pile yard debris, leaves, or snow around your well.
  • If you are having landscaping done on your residential property, it is crucial to allow the well casing to stand at least a foot above the ground. You will also want to ensure you slope any landscaping away from the well in order to promote suitable draining practices.
  • To prevent backflow in well pump plumbing installations, never submerge the garden hose nozzle in buckets or containers when mixing chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizer.
  • Pay close attention to how your water comes out of the tap. If your residential well water tap pulsates or has spurts of air, your well system will likely need to be serviced.
