How a Well Pump Works

The heart of any plumbing system is your home’s well pump.  If you live in the Greater Binghamton region, understanding how your well pump works is essential to county living.  At Action Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling, we specialize in well pump replacement and our Franklin brand well pumps are guaranteed to last.

At its heart, a well pump is comprised of a pump motor, pressure tank, impellers, pump shaft, diffusers, pressure switch, check valve, and pump casing.  All these components work together to bring pressurized water throughout the pipes in your home, delivered to sinks, showers, toilets, and more. 

The pump motor brings power to the propellors of your water pump, which allows suction to pump water from the bottom of your well.  The diffusers then take the water from the impellers and put it under pressure so it can be transferred up the pump shaft.

From there, the water is delivered to the pressure tank inside of your home which stores water at a recommended pressure, ready to be delivered when you turn on a faucet handle or flush a toilet. To monitor this system, the pressure switch monitors the pressure inside of your tank and automatically turns the pump on and off when needed. Lastly, the check valve allows water to flow only one way – into your home – to prevent backflow back into your well.

As you can see, a water pump is a rather complex unit, relying on all components for optimal operation.  At Action Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling, we understand how these components work together which makes it easier for our team to diagnose, repair or replace your well pump.

Signs You May Need Your Well Pump Replaced

There are some telltale signs that your well pump is reaching it’s end of life and needs to be replaced.  These signs include:

Low Water Pressure – If you notice your sinks or showers don’t have the flow they used to, it may be time to replace your well pump.

Inconsistent Water Flow – If you turn on a sink in your home and there is a sputtering and inconsistent flow, your water pump most likely need to be replaced or repaired.

Odd Noises – When you turn on our kitchen or bathroom faucet, do you hear a strange knocking noise before the water flows?  Strange noises from your basement or utility closet can mean your well pump should be replaced.

Non-Working Water Pump – The ultimate sign you need your well pump replaced is complete failure.  This happens when you turn on your faucet and nothing happens.  Luckily at Action Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling, we offer 247 emergency pumping services to get your home back up and running.

Types of Well Pumps We Replace

Depending on your type of well and the needs of your household, we have various well pump replacement options for our Greater Binghamton residents.

Submersible Well Pump

By far the most common type of well pump installed in Broome and Tioga County homes, as it’s name suggests, a submersible well pump is designed to be submerged in your well.  These types of well pumps are highly efficient and operate reliably over the years.  Since they are submerged in water, deep below the cold temperatures above, they are resistant to freezing and priming issues.

Shallow Well Pump

Less common than submersible style well pumps, a shallow well pump is a pump designed to be installed in a well that is 25 feet deep or less.  Our experienced well pump installers can help you choose the perfect shallow well pump for you need and professionally install it to manufacturers recommendations.

Jet Well Pump

Jet well pumps work by pulling up water from your well through a suction process and are installed above ground, rather than below ground.  Jet pumps come in a shallow well version and a deep well version.  Deep well jet pumps can bring large volumes of water up through the well at a higher velocity than a submersible pump and are ideal for homes that needed to have a deep (200’ or more) well drilled.
