What Type of Service and Maintenance Does Your Water Pump Need?

Having a well is only useful if you also have a durable, high-quality pump to draw water from your well and into your home or business. Given the essential role of your water pump, securing proper service and maintenance is a necessity. What type of service and maintenance does your pump need, and how can you find the right people for the job?

Find a Pump That is Tailored to the Size, Design, and Function of Your Well

No two wells are exactly the same, so one pump doesn’t fit all! Pumps are available in many varieties: pressure systems, submersible pumps, domestic pumps, jet pumps, and variable-frequency drive pumps, to name a few. Which does your well need?

Jet pumps, for instance, can be used for shallow or deep wells. Shallow well jet pumps sit above the ground and draw water out through one inlet pipe, while deep well jet pumps draw water out of one pipe and push it through another. A deep well submersible pump, on the other hand, cannot be seen because it uses a single pipe from inside the well to transport water into the home and connect to a pressure tank.

Superior Maintenance Is a Must

Just like any other system in your house, regular water pump maintenance is the key to preventing inconvenient and costly problems. Your pump should receive an annual maintenance checkup to ensure all parts are working properly. If a problem is in the process of developing, the annual maintenance checkup will catch it and resolve the problem before it becomes too expensive.

It’s also possible that you’ll experience problems with water flow and water pressure. Both problems can be resolved with proper maintenance. To restore water flow, for example, a water pump maintenance expert can use safe chemicals to dissolve any buildup that is blocking water flow. Low water pressure, on the other hand, can be resolved by installing a constant pressure valve between the pump and the pressure tank to automatically adjust flow.
