Pumps can be a major investment, so when and if you have issues, you want to make sure you call pump repair experts. You want to know that the job will be done fast, and correct the first time. At Triad Drillers we are experts in pump systems and offer a variety of pump systems, installations, and repairs.
Here are a few questions to ask yourself when deciding on the right pump system for you:
If your well is 0 feet to 25 feet deep then a shallow well jet pump would work for you. If your pump is deeper than that then a convertible well jet pump would work for you (up to 90 feet deep). The other option is a deep well submersible pump which works up to 300 feet deep.
If your water needs haven’t changed then you should use the same horsepower as your last pump. If you’ve added a new appliance that requires water, you may need a stronger pump and you should increase the horsepower to accommodate.
These work best for shallow well pumps. The pump sits above the ground and draws water through a single inlet pipe. These types of pumps tend to require less maintenance.
Jet pumps are mounted above your well and draw water up using suction. This process uses water, which means that the pump needs to be filled with water before it can work. There is also a one-way check valve installed to keep the water from flowing back down into the well.
A deep-well jet pump also sits above the ground but it uses two pipes to draw water as opposed to one. One pipe is used to draw water from the well while the second is used to push the water up. A deep-well jet pump includes a 25-foot long tailpipe that is connected to the intake end of the jet housing. This allows the pump to keep from over-pumping your well. This system also needs to be filled with water to work.
A deep-well submersible pump uses a single pipe connected to the home and a pressure tank to draw water into the home. This type of pump will not work unless it is completely submerged in liquid. A submersible pump is different from the others in that instead of lifting the water up, it pushes it up.
These pumps tend to be more efficient than the others but they are also slightly harder to repair. The repairs may require the pump to be pulled from the well casing. Submersible pumps are known for lasting up to 25 years before needing to be serviced.
