Well Pumps in Raleigh, NC
Get 100+ Years of Industry Experience On the Job
What is a well pump, anyway? A well pump delivers water to your home using a specific method based primarily on your home’s location. Like any other component in a plumbing system, well pumps are prone to failure later in their lifetime. You’ll know pretty quickly when that happens, as you stop getting sufficient water or any water to your home. The issue can arise from a number of causes such as a clog, frozen pipes, or malfunctions in specific pump components.
Our experts at R & S Mechanical can perform a free on-site inspection to determine what the likely cause is so that we can get it fixed for you fast. Call (919) 948-1351!
Tackling Well Pump Repairs in Raleigh & Beyond
Some common problems experienced with well pumps:
- The water level has been run low in the well. Believe it or not, this can happen! In these cases, it’s important to turn off electrical power to the pump and try to locate the garden hose, leaky toilet, or other cause of excess water consumption.
- If the water level has been lowered, but you give it a chance to return to an adequate level and it does after a short period this can indicate a mechanical problem that one of our experts should investigate.
- Do you hear your water pump starting intermittently while no water is being actively used? The switch only starts when the water pressure drops, so there’s some source of water loss. If you can’t easily locate the problem, our technicians should investigate.
Jet Pump or Submersible Pump?
If you have an older home, the chance is high that you have an older jet pump system. This type of pump draws the water up to your home from the well. This process of lifting the water can be less efficient than submersible pumps, but these units are far more accessible for regular service and repairs.
Alternatively, the submersible pump is intended for well systems where the line extends beyond a 24’ range (the effective distance of the jet pump). These units can tend towards the efficient side of the pump spectrum, but often pose significant barriers to service or repair.
