Well Pump Service in Silver Spring, MD & Montgomery County
Montgomery County has a wide variety of homes, and not all of them are connected to the Silver Spring civic water system to provide them with their water needs. Some homes still rely on wells, which have the advantage of being self-dependent and avoid the problem of running pipelines out to a rural or distant locale. But wells have their own issues, and it’s the responsibility of the homeowner to resolve them when it happens. Good plumbing services could be the only thing between you and a serious problem with your well water.
Take the issue of well pumps, for instance. We’re well past the point of well buckets and ladles here in the 21st century, and a well pump provides you with pressure and movement to deliver the water to your faucet without problems. But it needs to be installed the right way and the same service needs to be there for repair, maintenance and replacement as well. At Mallick Plumbing & Heating we’re your local service contractor of choice because we take those extra steps to make things work the right way. Contact our team today to discuss your issue in depth.
Well Pumps: Old Ways vs. New Ways
Well pumps have been around for a long time, but the technology of how they work has changed—and for the better. Older well pumps do not use constant pressure. This type of pump turns on to raise the pressure in the tank whenever it drops too low, and then shuts off when it reaches a set level. These older pumps often resulted in low water pressure throughout a home or fluctuations in pressure whenever more than one fixture was on at a time. New well pumps, however, are constant pressure systems: the speed of the pump regulates to meet water demands in the home and maintain constant pressure levels. The house receives a steady supply of water at the same pressure, eliminating problems from having more than one fixture on.
