Well System Q&A

Most frequent questions and answers

Yes. Residential & Commercial wells are considered “private wells” meaning no governmental agency is testing your water. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends annual well testing.

Feel free to call us at (269) 751-2143 and we can do some troubleshooting over the phone.  Our first suggestion will be to check to see if you have tripped a circuit breaker which powers the pump.

Commonly though, no water means you have an issue with one component of your well system or the season.  Over watering during late summer can eventually draw down the water table to a level below your pump.  You may be able to limit use for a few days.  

Routine inspections & maintenance will help to ensure your well system is operating efficiently and ensure you will get the most out of your investment in a private well.  Our team performs a number of well inspections each year and here are some of the things we do:

Pump Performance (grounding, line voltage, amp loads, etc)

Water Testing – testing for bacteria, nitrates, and other local concerns. Additional tests for iron, water hardness, manganese, sulfides, and other water attributes which cause staining, odors, or a cloudy appearance.

Pressure Tanks – ensure the pressure is at the appropriate level and your pump & tank are operating efficiently.  

Wells are not complicated in their setup but do require proper planning & maintenance to ensure you get quality water.

In short, a well is drilled to the proper depth (based on your area) and a submersible pump is lowered into your ground water.  This electric pumps brings water to the surface and works alongside your pressure tank to maintain your water flow. The major components are listed here:

Ground Water Aquifer – simply the water source for your private well. 

Submersible Pump – brings the water to your house or business. Quality pumps should last 15-30 years if properly maintained.  We recommend & install Grundfos and Pentair Myers pumps. 

Well Screens – protect your pump from rocks & other debris in your water source (not all wells require screens)

Well Casing – protects the structure of your well & acts as a permanent pathway for your ground water to the surface

Pressure Tank – controls the pressure of water coming into your home

John P.
Awesome service! Got to our house the same day I called, went right to work, quickly diagnosed the problem and what they needed to replace the well pump. They were very personable, and gave good explanations of what was needed and why. Even took extra time to help with another issue I was having getting my sprinkler pump going.
TJ B.
Jared and Phil came to my home, reassured me of what the problem was, and got the job done! Jared eased my mind and provided quick, professional, and accurate service! They were kind on the phone and in-person! They treated me with respect and answered any question that I had about the project. They even showed me things they didn't need to, in order to help me understand my well system. I would recommend them to anyone, anytime! Thank you again for everything!
