When you get water pumped into your home from a private well, it’s a little different than just having the city pump the liquid into your faucets. The components may be similar, but they are completely your responsibility. Understanding how your system works can help you know when to call your plumber for repairs and upgrades. Find the best solution for your home and your budget when you have a professional who understands your system.
Components of the Well System
Your water system consists of a well pump, a storage tank, pressurized switches, plumbing, and pump motors to bring the water into your home. The well pump is just one component which provides the water. If you’re experiencing problems with water delivery, it could be any number of issues, from the pump not functioning to drought conditions affecting the water supply. Sometimes, it’s also as simple as a pressure switch that is not operating effectively.
Types of Well Pumps
Jet pumps – These pumps are the most common. A jet pump sits outside the water well, and uses a mechanical suction system to bring the water into the holding tank where it waits for you to use it. If the jet pump is above the frost line, it can freeze in the winter if not protected. It is easier to make repairs on this system.
Submersible Pumps – These pumps are often extremely efficient, especially in deeper wells. Instead of sitting outside the water well, a submersible pump actually sits at the bottom of the well in the water. The submersible pump does not freeze like the jet pump, but when repairs are needed, your plumber will have to remove it from the well.
Today’s well pumps are much eco-friendlier and efficient than ever before. Your plumber can help you make changes to your system to find the best source of energy, from standard electricity to wind turbines. When you’re ready to upgrade and make improvements to your well pump, talk to your professional about the options which are available in your area and for your type of system.
