Water Well Pump Service
Keeping Your Water Supply Working
In some areas of Berks, Chester, Lehigh and Montgomery counties your water comes from a well instead of the municipal water supply. A well pump that is not working properly won't supply you with water. This is a catastrophic event. Making sure your pump works properly is critical to your needs. Quinn's has experts with well pump service knowledge.
Here are the most common problems:
- Pressure switch stuck
- Clogged pump lines
- Low water pressure
- Wells that are too shallow
- Oversized/undersized pumps
- Pressure tank leaks
A lot of problems are because of poor installation or maintenance. Is your pump is running frequently or shutting off intermittently? This can be a sign of a failure. This may be due to additional water use, new appliance or leaks. All of which can overwhelm your well pump making it work harder.

Well Pump Types
Your well pump is one of these types, shallow jet pump, 2 pipe jet pump or submersible.
- For wells that are less than 25 feet deep, a shallow jet pump is ideal.
- Deeper wells (30- 100 feet deep) typically use a 2 pipe jet pump .
- In the event that your well is 100 feet or deeper, a submersible pump is used.
Each type of pump has several different horsepower ratings. Typically, for every fixture or appliance that uses water, you will need 1 GPM. Most homes use a pump with a output of 8-12 GPM on average.
A new pump is needed if you have more water being used or if your pump is no longer working. Our trained experts can determine the size pump you need.
