Well Services in Carbon, Lehigh & Northampton Counties

When it comes to your drinking water, you might think city tap water is your only option. That’s where well water systems come into play. Besides giving you fresh, clean drinking water, well systems provide many other benefits.

For example, you don’t get a monthly water bill because it’s not water supplied by the city. Plus, you never have to worry about the additional chemical additives used to treat city water, making it safer for you and your loved ones.

With the help of our experts at Andreas Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we provide professional-grade well system installation, repair, and maintenance services so you, too, can enjoy the amazing benefits of well water systems.

Well Water System vs. City Water

There are a few key things to consider when deciding if well water services or city water is the best option for you. With well water comes a variety of benefits, including:

  • Better quality control: Unlike city water, well water isn’t treated with chemicals, giving you more control over your home’s water quality.
  • No more water bills: Because city water is provided by a private reservoir of water that requires multiple levels of maintenance, this is reflected in your monthly water bill. However, well water systems are 100% resident-dependent, eliminating monthly water bills.
  • Eco-friendly: With no need for chemical treatments, well water systems are safer for the environment as the water that flows back in is as natural as possible.

How Does a Well Water System Work?

Before you decide on installing a well water system in your home, it’s important to know how it all works. While city water comes from a private reservoir, most well water is pumped out from the ground using mainly one of two pump types:

Jet pumps: Best for wells that go no deeper than 25 feet and are mounted above-ground. These pumps use suction to draw water from the well and through a pipe to provide water pressure for the home.

Submersible pumps: Best for wells deeper than 25 feet into the ground, as they need to be fully submerged in water to operate properly. They’re placed in the well casing and use an above-ground power source.

After the water is brought up from the ground and into your home, a pressure tank distributes it throughout your home’s plumbing system. It also acts as a storage tank, storing up to 200 gallons of water.

With this level of control over your home’s water supply comes the importance of regular maintenance to ensure your water remains safe and clean to drink and use.

Signs You Need Well Water System Repair or Well Pump Repair

With any plumbing system, issues are bound to arise at some point, and a well water system is no different. That said, it’s important to know what to look for when maintaining good water quality in your well.

Some of the most common signs you may need a well water system or well pump repair include:

  • No access to water: Not having any water is the number one problem of any plumbing system, including well water systems. This could be due to a pipe leak, a faulty circuit breaker, or an issue with your pressure tank. Our experts can find the root cause and fix it in no time.
  • Low water pressure: Almost as bad as having no water at all, low water pressure indicates that your well pump is failing. This can also happen if you install additional appliances that rely on your well water system, like a new bathroom, dishwasher, or larger water heater.
  • Unusually loud noises: Your well water system should never make excessively loud noises when providing your home with water. If you hear loud sounds from your well, your pump system may be damaged and need repairs or replacement.
  • Inconsistent flow of water: A cross between low water pressure and no water, you may notice your faucets give out spurts of water and air, making a sort of “spitting” sound. This could be due to a crack in your pipe, or your well is running dry.
  • Dirty, foul-smelling well water: Another huge problem with any plumbing system is contaminated, unusable water. This happens when your pump is too large for your well or placed too far down — an easy fix for our experts.
