How a Well Pump Works
In the Piedmont, North Carolina area, there are a couple different types of well pumps that are commonly used – jet pumps and submersible pumps. For homes that have a shallow water table of around 20 or 25 feet, a jet pump is most commonly used to create suction, similar to how a straw works to draw a beverage, to pull water into your home or business. Jet pumps are often mounted in your crawl space, well house, or a basement.
Many homes must drill down deeper to get access to the water table. While a jet pump can still be used in these cases, a better option is to install a submersible pump. These pumps push water up into homes as opposed to creating suction like the jet pump. This method makes submersible pumps a more efficient option. It is important to note, however, that submersible pumps need to be installed deep in the well, which makes repair difficult. Submersible pumps tend to last longer than jet pumps, so repairs are usually minimal.

Common Well Pump Problems Needing Repair
Well pumps are generally very reliable, but just like any other piece of equipment, they can break down and have problems. If any of these common issues happen to your system call Master Plumbers of North Carolina for professional pump repair services.
- Well Pump Motor – There are a couple common motor problems. A bad starter switch will prevent the motor from actually starting up.
- Well Pump Electrical – Sometimes the wires powering the motor can come loose or start to deteriorate. If the issue is not related to the electricity actually getting to the motor, then it likely is the motor itself.
- No Water – If the well pump motor starts up but water still isn’t coming into your home, there could be a couple of different issues. Your pump may have lost its prime, the foot valve or strainer may be clogged or, if it’s very cold where you live, the pipes might be frozen.
