Greenwood Well Pump Repair, Replacement & Installation
While many Greenwood homes obtain their water from the city, others depend on residential wells for their water supply. Traditionally our ancestors had to manually fetch water from wells, a process that was lengthy and ultimately inefficient. Fortunately, much has changed since then, and with the invention of the well pump, families that use wells as their source of water can have immediate access to all that they need in order to take care of cleaning dishes, doing the laundry, taking a bath, and other such chores. However, given the importance of water to daily life, that also means that keeping your well pump functional is an absolute priority. That’s why at Plumb Doctor, we ensure all our technicians are equipped to handle any well pump related issues, ensuring that you have continued access to water when you need it most.
Repairing Your Well Pump
There are a number of things to look out for when living in a residence that gets its water from a well. Sputtering water is what happens when there is air in the pipes, and while this could potentially indicate that there is not enough water in the well, it’s more likely that the pump isn’t operating correctly or that a crack in the pipes is causing air to leak in. Opaque or foul-smelling water occurs when it’s mixed in with silt and bacteria, which indicates a problem with the filtration system. Alternatively, even if you haven’t noticed any clear signs of trouble, unusually high utility bills are always a hint that something isn’t working properly, and it might be best to call in a professional to take a look.
Replacing Your Well Pump
While sputtering water is inconvenient, no water at all is a much bigger problem and one that requires immediate attention. Depending on the situation, the unit may need to be replaced or, at the very least, repositioned to ensure that you continue to have access to the water you need. Additionally, some of the above issues can worsen until replacement is necessary if they aren’t immediately addressed. For example, silt in the mechanism can lead to extreme levels of wear on the inner workings of the pump, making a pump replacement the only appropriate course of action. Regardless of the cause, we understand the severity of well pump related issues and are prepared to perform the replacement as quickly as possible to restore your connection to the water supply.
Installing Your Well Pump
If you’re new to well pumps, we’d be more than happy to walk you through the process.

When you’re ready to proceed, we’ll take care of every detail of the installation process, ensuring that the pump is at the appropriate level within the well to maximize productivity and efficiency.
