Well Pumps in Reading

25 Plumbing_Banner

In some areas of Reading, your water comes from a well instead of the municipal water supply. A well pump that is not providing your home or business with the water it needs can be a catastrophic event. Making sure your pump works properly is critical to your home or businesses water supply. Essig Plumbing and Heating has been providing the residents of  Reading with well pump service for decades, here are the most common problems we see:

  • Lack Of Horsepower
  • Clogged Pump Lines
  • Failing Pumps
  • Wells That Are Too Shallow
  • Oversized/Undersized Pump
  • Pressure Tank Leak

Many of these problems are because of improper installation and maintenance. If your pump is running frequently or shutting off intermittently, the failure may be due to additional appliances or family members, which can overwhelm your well pump.

Is it time For a New Well Pump?

Your well pump is one of three types, shallow jet pump, deep jet pump or submersible. For wells that are less than 25 feet deep, a shallow jet pump is ideal while deeper wells typically use a deep well jet pump. In the event that your well is hundreds of feet deep, you will need a submersible pump. Each type of pump has several different horsepower options and gpm ratings. Typically, for every fixture or appliance that uses water you will need 1 gpm rating. Most homes of medium size use a pump with a gpm rating of 8-12 gpm.

You will need a new pump if you have added a new family member or additional appliance or if your pump is no longer functioning. Our trained plumbers can help you determine the size and horsepower of your pump.
