At Mosman Well Works, we have the knowledge, expertise, materials, and equipment to provide a quick solution to every possible well pump problem. We proudly serve Litchfield, New Haven, and Middlesex Counties.
Because we know the importance of our Woodbury clients having a constant supply of water, we guarantee minimum disruption of your water supply while completing the work.
There are two major types of well pumps for use at your CT home. You can utilize the jet pump or submersible pumps (sump pump). The choice of pump you may need to use at your home will depend on its functionality.
At Mosman Well Works, we will offer both types of pumps depending on the preference of our Woodbury clients. Our dedicated team takes the time to determine the best solution for your well pump, and keeps you alerted of any developments in the process.
Jet Well Pumps are the most expensive type of pumps to maintain, with a shorter lifespan than the Submersible. We highly recommend replacement of the Jet Pump with a Submersible Well Pump, as it’s more cost-effective to maintain.
The Jet Well Pump utilizes suction to draw water out of the ground. These units typically sit above ground, and last 10 years.
Submersible Well Water pumps are the most popular choice for our clients. With 30% more water pressure produced than a standard jet pump, the Submersible pump is the most sensible option for clients looking for a low-maintenance, long-lasting well pump solution. These units are, as the name implies, submerged within the well as opposed to above ground, and last for about 25 years with proper maintenance.
In some cases, repairing a well water pump may not be the best option.
We begin the Replacement process with a critical fixture analysis. This evaluation includes a detailed inspection of the building’s size and style, the piping diameter, the anticipated level of demand, expected number of fixtures, and the distance between the furthest fixture and the source.
Well Pump Replacements can save time and money in some cases, especially if your pump can no longer function properly in your Woodbury home.
Whether you have low or no water pressure, we can inspect your well water system, identify the problem, and offer the best solution. In the event your home requires a replacement pump, our team will handle the installation.

More often than not, yes. Your pump will stop working if you lose electricity, and do not have a backup power supply for it to utilize.
For shallow or older wells, a Jet Pump will pull water (as the name implies) through a jet, or narrow orifice. The constriction in the jet will increase the speed water travels, creating a partial vacuum as it leaves. This vacuum sucks additional water from the well.
As opposed to sucking water from the ground, the Submersible pump pushes water to the surface. The pump is placed within the well itself. When a pressure switch is turned on, the impeller spins, drawing water into the pump. The water is pushed through the pump’s body and brought up to the surface.
The lifespan of each pump type is dependent on the care of the well itself. If a well is well maintained, the pumps are likely to last their estimated lifespan.
A Submersible Pump is designed to last up to 25 years, but cannot reach that if your well contains high levels of sediment or particles. This can easily be remedied with regular maintenance from Mosman Well Works.
While we understand the need to save money, we do not recommend attempting to “DIY” any projects related to your well water system. What may seem as a small mistake can prevent your water system from operating optimally: which is why we recommend, at the very least, consulting the professionals.
The most common repairs you would face are replacing a pressure switch, or replacing your water tank. Scheduling regular well maintenance with Mosman Well Works is a great way of preventing a need for future repairs.
