Well pumps provide drinking water to your home from a nearby well. When you pair your well pump with a pressure tank, you reduce the strain on your pump and even out the water pressure in your home.

Without regular care and maintenance, your well pump may fail, putting your home’s water supply at risk.

Types of Well Pumps We Sell & Install


Submersible Pumps

The most common type of well pump is a submersible pump. Submersible pumps can be mechanical, rotary, electric or solar powered. Regardless of their type, submersible pumps operate beneath the surface of the water in your well.

Submersible pumps are often designed to last a number of years in your well, but it’s important that you don’t forget about them and that you continue to carry out yearly inspection and maintenance.

Jet Pumps

If your well pump is above ground or in your basement, it is most likely a jet pump.

Jet pumps supply your home with well water by pulling water up from the well using large amounts of pressure. The “jet” power allows the pump to pull water from depths of up to 200 feet. Just like submersible pumps, jet pumps require yearly maintenance to ensure efficient operations.

Well Pump Replacement

One of the most common reasons families replace their well pump is because it has become too small to provide water to their entire home. For example, when your teenager is showering at the same time you’re running the dishwasher, you may notice that the water pressure decreases substantially.

The easiest way to avoid this problem is to replace your old well pump with a newer model that can provide more gallons of water per minute, serving all your family’s water needs.

When deciding how to replace your well pump, we measure the peak water demand of your home, or how many gallons of water are being used during peak hours, such as early in the morning when your family is getting ready for work and school.

Another factor we consider when replacing your well pump is your preferred water pressure. “Old-school” pressure tank and well pump setups offer a minimum water pressure. We can install a new, constant pressure pump which results in water pressure similar to what’s experienced on a city system.

Kobella offers coupons for well pump installation and a variety of other services. If you think your home might need a new well pump, give us a call to discuss the details with one of our plumbing experts.

Well Pump Maintenance

Once you have installed the best well pump for your home, we recommend performing yearly maintenance in order to keep it running efficiently.

Some signs your well pump may be going bad include:

  • Little to no water flow or “spitting” from faucets
  • Decreased water pressure
  • Dirty water
  • Constantly running pump (often detected through unusually high electric bills)

Tim was prompt and professional. He was very thorough in trying to find the source for our water problem and recommended what should be done. He even identified some other issues that we were not aware needed to be fixed along with a time frame for when they should be addressed and an estimate. We will definitely call Kobella again. We've used other plumbing services before but either weren't pleased with the results, were overcharged or felt taken advantage of. None of that with Kobella.
