What to Know About Well Pumps

Owning a home with a well yields many benefits. This water is free, doesn’t rely on a city’s infrastructure and is free of the chemicals that are found in municipal tap water. You may already know about these benefits, but do you know about the system that grants you your natural water?

Drainmen Plumbing, the leading plumbing company in Gilbertsville, PA, provides an array of services for well pumps. Here is some information about these essential components and the services that we perform.

Types of Well Pumps

You can either get a jet pump or submersible pump for your well. Jet pumps circulate water in loop systems and can be used for both shallow and deep wells. They can pull water anywhere from 25 to 100 feet. This style of well pump lasts about 10 years in the United States.

Submersible well pumps, which can last up to 15 years, are installed deep down inside of a well and push out water. This type of pump is preferred when high flow rates and pressure settings are required.

Common Well Pump Problems

Well failure, equipment malfunctions and plumbing breakdowns are three common factors that halt your water from reaching you. Some common well pump problems include power loss, wrong pump size, low water table, overused water pump and abrasive water sediment.
