Well Pumps

What a Well Pump Does

A well pump is the most important part your water system. This is how water gets propelled or pulled into your house for daily usage. Without a pump, a house cannot receive water from your well. There are several different types of pumps that provide different quantities of water. If a pump goes bad, it is vital that you call us to diagnose your problem so that you can be back in service as quick as possible.

Submersible Pumps

A standard Submersible pump is the most common type of well pump.  It gets its name because it is underground in your well propelling water from the well into your home. Submersible pumps come in various sizes depending on the depth of your well, the amount of water used, type of pressure tank used and a variety of other characteristics of your home. Pumps range in horsepower and voltage and is based on the type of circuit breaker and pressure tank installed in your home. Many "no water" issues and pressure issues are related directly or indirectly to either your pump, pressure tank and/or the wire and piping between the bottom of the well and your house.

DAB Booster Pump

DAB Booster Pumps are compact pumps for inside your house. This pump is a self priming, low noise level pump that increases the water pressure to your house. The Booster Pump acts similar to the constant pressure and is able to increase the pressure coming from the well, but only boosting the water that is stored in the pressure tank at that time.

Booster pumps are GREAT for city water!

Jet Pumps

A Jet pump is used for both shallow and deep wells. In shallow wells, the jet pump is above ground and the pressure builds at the pump. In deep wells, the pressure is built in the well and pulled into the house by the jet pump. Unlike Submersible pumps, Jet Pumps pull the water from the well and are primed in order for the pump to work. On occasion, the pump can lose its prime which can lead to a loss of water.

What a Constant Pressure System Does

Constant Pressure Systems are the newest complete system on the market.  The Franklin Subdrive and Grundfos Constant Pressure systems are complete systems ensuring constant pressure for most homes. Once the system is installed, the SmartFlo system will constantly adapt the pumps performance to meet the demand for water in your household. No matter how many water sources are being used; you could be running a shower, washing machine, irrigation system, sinks, toilets, etc. and the SmartFlo system makes sure the water pressure remains constant. We set the pressure @ 70 psi for optimum performance.
