Well Pump Installation
Cascadian Drilling can install well pumps of the appropriate size for your water well and application, where ever you are across the BC interior.
When Do You Need Well Pump Installation Services?
Typically, well pump installations are done shortly after the drilling of a well. This is especially true for the pump types that go down the same hole as the well. In this case, the hole has to be open to install the pump, so installing the pump when it’s already open simply makes sense.
If the pump resides above ground, however, the main well hole will typically be capped. Plumbing will run from the side of the well pipe to the pump to connect the two.
Deep well pump installation almost always involves a submersible pump, so it won’t take long to get it installed after a new well is dug. However, if you need to replace an old pump, this can take time. This is because the installers have to get the pump through a much longer pipe. First, the old one is pulled up, and then, the new one is lowered into position. The length of the pipe will also be a factor when it comes to hooking up the electrical power for the pump.
If you already have a well and pump, you may think that you’ll never need to worry about deep well pump installation again. Unfortunately, this is not actually the case. Well pump installations can be required every 15 or 20 years, with outliers on each side of this range. Mechanical failure is usually the reason for needing a new pump.
The length of time needed for installation depends on whether the pump is an above-ground type or a submersible. Above-ground pumps are easy to work on or replace because they are so accessible, and this is one of the biggest benefits of this style. However, not all wells will work with an above-ground pump, so the specifics of the well determine the type of pump to use.
Well Pump Pressure Tank Setup
Well Pump Pressure Tank Setup Can Be More Affordable Than Replacing Well Pump!
When the pressure tank associated with a well starts to fail, it can be tempting to ignore it for as long as possible. This is especially true when problems first show themselves, because in many cases, the water will initially keep coming. However, it will cause the pump to cycle more often, and this cycling will get ever more frequent. Finally, the pump tank won’t hold pressure at all, and this is where two problems come in.
The first problem is the most obvious, and that is that the water stops coming out of the faucets. What makes this so bad, however, is actually what it does to the pump. When the water pressure stays low, the pump runs continuously. This causes it to burn out, and then, you aren’t just replacing a tank anymore. You’re also calling a service about replacing well pump. As you can imagine, this is far more expensive.
In order to save yourself from prematurely replacing your well pump, it is important to get a new pressure tank as soon as your current one shows signs of problems. Well pump pressure tank setup isn’t all that difficult, so it shouldn’t take long to take care of it for you. It will need to be connected to your well pump system and then primed so that it is able to hold the right amount of pressure. The entire job can often be done in an hour or less.
Considering the alternative, it’s very much worthwhile purchasing a new tank, and getting it setup properly as soon as problems are detected. Then, you can look forward to your water running properly for a long time to come.
