Well Pump Installation and Replacement
Call the experts at Mr. Rooter if you need a new well pump installed or want to replace your old one. A key sign of your well pump reaching the end of its life is a high energy bill. This means the pump is working harder than usual or continuously running to maintain the water pressure in your house. Other signs of malfunction include air “spitting” from the faucet, abnormal noises, and dirty water. Replace your well pump and keep it well maintained to promote the longest lifespan possible.
Many well owners think they can replace their well pump on their own. If this process is done incorrectly, it can be dangerous and cause more damage in the long term. Leave it to the professionals and call Mr. Rooter. We will answer any questions that you have and keep you informed throughout the process. We believe that our customers should be kept fully informed of the work we do to their property.
Winter means frozen pipes, especially if they aren’t maintained properly and prevention measures haven’t been taken. Pipes burst from being frozen, which can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damages in seconds. When the water in the pipe freezes, it expands and puts pressure on the pipe. Once the ice melts, the water leaks through the cracks or flows out through a burst pipe. It only takes a few minutes for your basement to become filled with water.
Prevent frozen pipes by leaving a faucet running a little to keep the water in the pipes moving, keeping warm air circulating by placing a fan near the pipes, properly sealing your basement, insulating your pipes, draining your sprinkler system, and insulating your attic. If you fear your pipes have frozen, call us to schedule an appointment. We can help you maintain your pipes, repair any damages, and prevent them from freezing again. Call Mr. Rooter today to discuss your winter prevention plans.
