Well Pump Services in York

From well drilling to routine repair, Foundation Plumbing & Heating is your expert well service company.

In the past 150 – 200 years, having running water in the home has gone from being an unbelievable luxury to an absolute necessity of life. The well pump is the beginning of this transition to having easily accessible water within a home. Now, instead of requiring human muscle power to bring the water in, it is done automatically through electrical means. Water pressure and water quality are of the utmost concern if your house’s water supply comes from a well. Foundation Plumbing & Heating provides a full spectrum of water testing and well pump maintenance and repair.

Even with the best well – you still need a quality filtration system to keep water quality safe. Be sure to ask about our water filtration services today!

Which Well Pump? Types and Functions

There are actually several different types of well pumps, meant for different depths and using different propulsion systems. The only function of these pumps is to bring fresh water from deep underground up to the surface for human use.

  • Shallow Well Jet Pumps: These pumps sit above ground and are designed for wells at a depth of 25 feet or less. They use suction and a one-way valve to extract water from the well.
  • Centrifugal Pumps: This is another above-ground system designed for a shallower well (25 ft of depth or less) that uses centrifugal force (hence the name) to force water up from a well.
  • Deep Well Jet Pumps: While this pump uses similar methods of water extraction to the shallow well jet pump, this jet pump is actually placed underground and can be used on wells of a greater depth than 25 feet.
  • Deep Well Submersible Pumps: Submersible pumps are actually submerged in the well water in order to force it up the pipes and into the home. This is an excellent choice for deeper wells (more than 25 feet in depth).

There are other options that differ minutely from these in form or operation, but this list does cover the primary examples and gives you enough information to be able to understand the basics of well pumps.

Well Pump Issues: Common Repair Signs

While well pumps (due to their placement and importance) are meant to run well and long with very little maintenance, all equipment does give out eventually. Below are signs that you may need to have a plumbing professional come take a look at your well pump.

  • Intermittent Water Pressure
  • High electric bills
  • Sputtering sinks
  • Clicking or other noises
  • Dangerously hot water
  • No water

The problem with well pumps is that because the problem often lies underground, particularly with deep wells, it is very difficult to get a complete picture of what is happening without literally doing some digging. Foundation Plumbing & Heating has the tools and the expertise to overcome any problem we encounter.

There is no way to completely prevent a negative outcome for your aging well pump, but routine plumbing maintenance can make all the difference.
