Well Pump Services in Tampa

Well water has long been used as a source for water and many homeowners like the taste of it. To get the water, wells have to be dug pretty deep, many times below the lowest part of a home. Plumbing systems depend largely on gravitational pull to work, but when a pipe runs counter to natural gravity, some help is needed. This is where our experts come with professional well pump services.

Let Us Help You Select the Right Well Pump

Selecting a pump for well isn’t as easy as pointing to a single pump and installing it. Our experts will help you assess what type of well pump you will need based on the depth of your well. There are three types of well water pumps:

  • Jet pump – this type of well pump is used when the pump is situated above ground, typically in a basement area. A jet pump can only be used when your well is less than 25 feet deep.
  • Deep well jet pump – a pump like this is connected to a single pipe coming from your well. Wells using this type of pump are over 25 feet deep and can be as much as 110 feet deep.
  • Submersible pump – as the name indicates, this type of pump is installed near the bottom of your well, typically in the water, and pumps water directly to a pressure tank, which holds the water for your home. This type of pump is used for very deep wells, up to 400 feet deep.

Common Well Pump Problems

As with any kind of motorized pump, you may see a repair issue develop at some point during your ownership. The experts from Peninsular Plumbing have seen just about every type of well pump problem and can help you with all of your well pump repair needs in Tampa. Here are some of the more common issues we run into:

  • Electrical issues – electrical components can wear and fail, and two of the most common culprits we see are worn wiring and problematic electrical circuits. Either one can cause your well pump to behave erratically or completely malfunction.
  • Issue with the pump motor – the motor of the pump is the intrinsic component that allows the pump to pull the water from your well into your home. If the motor isn’t properly maintained by a professional, issues with lubrication, worn parts or grinding from excess dirt can shut the motor down completely.
  • Leaks in the well pump system – leaks in the piping that allow your well pump to work can cause the pump to stop operating.

There’s no need to handle well pump issues on your own when the experts from Peninsular Plumbing are just a phone call away!
