Professional well pump installation, maintenance and repairs
With so many factors to consider, choosing a well pump can be a daunting task: What is the depth to my water source? Should I choose a submersible pump or a jet-type? How much water does my household or business actually use?
The experienced team at Oxford Plumbers can help you make the right choice. We’ll asses your home or business needs and determine the type and size pump that is most efficient.
We’ll also keep your new or existing pump working through preventative maintenance and prompt repairs, so your water system never lets you down.
Is it time for a new well pump?
Most well pumps are expected to last for up to 15 years but the lifespan of any well pump can be affected by many variables, including whether your pump is submersible or jet-type, and the level of sediment in your well.
You’ll know it’s time to consider replacing your well pump if you notice the following:
- A decrease in water pressure
- Water that seems dirty
- Air hissing from your faucets
- Unusual noises coming from your well pump
A sudden increase in your electricity bill (a sign that your pump is operating continuously to maintain water pressure)
If you think your pump may be showing signs of wear and tear, have it inspected by the team at Oxford Plumbing and we’ll let you know whether we recommend repairs or replacement.
Should I choose a jet pump or a submersible pump?
Generally speaking, the depth to your water source will determine what type of pump is right for you.
If your water supply is close to the surface, a shallow-well jet pump should do the trick. For water supplies more than 25-feet below, a deep-well jet pump or submersible pump may be a better choice.
The team at Oxford Plumbing will measure your well’s depth to water and help you calculate your water use so you can select the best well pump for your home or business.
