Submersible Well Pump Repair
Inside water wells throughout southeastern Wisconsin is a submersible well pump. This pump is responsible for pumping water out of the well and into your home's pressure tank.
Submersible well pumps are by far the most common pump we run into and are sometimes known as deep well pumps. Oftentimes we're able to make repairs on a well pump system without entering the well or pulling the pump, but in some cases, the well pump needs to be pulled from the well for repair or replacement.
If you're having water system challenges such as low or no water pressure in a house with a well, and have a submersible well pump, call Austin Plumbing Heating & Air today to help diagnose the well pump problem.

Signs Your Well Pump May Need Service
The most common symptom of a water well or well pump problem is discovering that you have no water coming out of the taps in your home. Sometimes described by clients as “very poor water pressure”, this reduction in the water your well pump is pumping may indicate that your well or pump requires service or repairs.
Noisy Well Pump
As a well pump ages, sometimes the amount of noise it makes while pumping can increase. If you have noticed that your well pump is making more noise than it used to, you should schedule a service call with Austin Plumbing Heating & Air today.
Pressure Tank Is Short Cycling
If your well pump is turning on and off frequently, this may indicate that your well pump and pressure tank are not working in sync with each other.

Traditional well pump and pressure tank systems work by pulling water from a well into a pressure tank. That tank acts as a reserve for your home's water supply and replenishes itself as needed.
A popular improvement to existing well systems is the installation of a constant pressure well pump.
Unlike traditional well pumps that typically turn on at 40PSI and shut off at 60PSI leaving a 20-pound swing in pressure, constant pressure well pumps deliver water at a set pressure (typically 60 pounds) so you get maximum water pressure in your home at all times. A constant pressure well system will keep your tank at a constant pressure level to give your home a steady flow of water on a consistent basis, just like city water!
The inside portion of the well system is commonly known as a pressure tank. This tank holds and stores water to be used during pumping cycles of the well pump. Some well pump failures are caused by a faulty pressure tank. More about well pressure tank service and replacement.
Sometimes the pressure provided by a well pump leaves a lot to be desired. Austin Plumbing Heating & Air has solved poor water pressure problems for Waukesha and Washington County for over 80 years.
There are many different causes of poor water pressure. Sometimes it's plumbing related and sometimes it's well, well pump, or pressure tank related. The key to better water pressure is making sure the plumber who is diagnosing the problem and performing the repairs knows exactly what they are doing.
A part of most real estate transactions for Wisconsin homes with a well system is the requirement of a well inspection. This inspection is to ensure that the well is safe to operate and appears to meet code based on when the well was installed or when major work to the well and pressure tank was completed.
An accurate well inspection is important to protect both the buyer and seller in a real estate transaction so that both parties understand the condition of the water well system. When you trust Austin Plumbing Heating & Air to perform your well inspection, you can be assured that you will get a thorough and complete well system inspection.
Having clean and safe water to drink is a major concern of most well owners. The best way to ensure your well water is safe to drink is to have a well water test performed annually.
The process to take a well water sample is very simple. We collect a water sample from the well using the pressure tank tap. After collecting the sample, we send it to a state-certified laboratory for evaluation. After the lab tests the water, they email the water test results for all of the tests that we request them to run. The most common things to test well water for are bacteria, arsenic, and nitrates.
