WELL WATER PUMP REPAIR

TYPES OF WELL PUMPS AND REPAIRS h5

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.

THE JET PUMP h5

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. If this is not an optimal choice for your home, that’s not a problem: our team is trained to address the issues your Jet Pump may be having.

Our team of professionals can address:

  • Pump failure (turning on or off)
  • Pump motor running, but no water coming out
  • Intermittent water flow
  • Failure to build and shut-off pressure
  • Overly-frequent pump cycling
  • “Chattering” or rattling noises before or after pump cycle
SUBMERSIBLE WELL WATER PUMPS

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.

Mosman Well Works offers maintenance and any necessary repairs to your Submersible Pumps, including:

  • Inspection
  • Blasting and cleaning
  • Fabrication or Rebuilding (as needed)
  • Impeller coatings
  • Impeller and Rotor balancing
  • Reassembly
  • Motor Analysis

FREQUENTLY ASKED WELL PUMP QUESTIONS h4

DOES MY WELL PUMP STOP WORKING DURING A POWER OUTAGE? h5

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.

HOW DOES MY WELL PUMP PULL WATER FROM THE WELL?

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.

HOW LONG WILL MY PUMP LAST?

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.

SHOULD I TACKLE REPAIRS ON MY OWN?

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.
