AFTER a pump job, do NOT run the well water through your water treatment equipment. The water is TOO dirty. Run the water from your garden hose (20 minutes on, 20 minutes off) until your water runs clean and clear. Otherwise, you will damage your water treatment equipment resulting in HUNDREDS of dollars in repair work.
Submersible Pump vs. Jet Pump
A submersible pump is installed IN your well.
The average CT homeowner will install a 5 or 7 GPM (gallon per minute) pump that is either a ½ hp, ¾ hp, or 1 hp (horsepower). We always use a 7 GPM pump unless otherwise indicated. Most people prefer a submersible pump over a jet pump because it provides better water pressure and you never need to prime the pump.
A submersible pump typically lasts 10-15 years and costs between $1,500 and $2,100 to replace it.
Shallow and Deep Well Jet Pumps are NOT installed in your well but are located above ground, usually in your basement or garage.
A Shallow Well Jet Pump – is for wells that are 25 feet or LESS.
A Deep Well Jet Pump - is for wells that are deeper than 25 feet.
For our CT service area – the horsepower is typically ½ hp, ¾ hp or 1 hp.
We proudly use Goulds Jet Pumps.
No Water DIY? Try These 4 Things First
1. Check your breakers – Flip it on, off and back on. It should be labeled “well,” “well pump,” “pump.”
If this works but it trips again – then there is a pump problem.
2. Check your pressure gauge on your pressure tank (well tank). If it reads zero then you are out of water, have a low flow switch, or your pump is broken. (Or your gauge is broken.)
3. If you have a low flow switch – the grey box located at your pressure tank – lift the lever UP to the START position and hold for 10 seconds until the pressure gauge reads 40. Then, don’t use any water for 2-3 hours until the well recovers and fills back up. Note: Not all boxes have a lever.
4. High water use? Did you fill your pool? Leave the outside spigot on? Did you water your gardens for more than 30 minutes? Did you pressure wash your home? Are we in a drought?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, stop using any water. Wait 2-3 hours to see if your well recovers and fills back up. Then try running your water again.
