Our goal is to provide exceptional pump and well service at a price you can afford without sacrificing quality. Our pump and well services include pump replacement and/or repairs to electrical components, control boxes, pipes, water pressure tanks, pressure valves and hose bibs. At the heart of a water well system is the pumping system.  There are two types of pumps most often used in the residential market. Jet Pumps and Submersible Pumps. What type of pump you use depends on depth of water, water quantity, system pressure, pump cost and pump efficiency.

Nolan has been servicing our irrigation system at our church for many years.  Our system is supplied with water by a well and we have discussed on numerous occasions about the need for an upgrade.  The biggest issue has been inconsistent water pressure. The old pump was finally on its last leg and it was time for a decision to make upgrades.  The budget was approved. Nolan installed a submersible pump down in the well instead of the above ground pump like we had before.  The pressure was so much better.  This improved many weaknesses in our irrigation system just by improving the pressure.  Thanks Nolan.

Deep Well Jet PumpJet Pumps

Jet pumps are mounted above ground and usually housed in a small enclosure. Jet pumps are most often used for shallow wells and use suction created by a vacuum to lift water out of the well through a pipe installed in the well.  Because water is used to create the suction jet pumps must be primed.

Submersible pumps are housed under water down in the well.  Submersible pumps push water through a pipe instead of pulling it with suction.  Cylindrical in shape, submersible pumps fit into the well casing.  The cylinder houses the pump motor as well as a series of impellers stacked on top of each other.  These impellers drive water up through the pump and into a pipe (drop pipe) attached to the top of the pump.  The drop pipe is installed within the casing and the top of the drop pipe is connected to the distribution pipe that exits the well that leads to your irrigation system or home. We have serviced the Jacksonville area for 30 years. Our experience will give you the quality service you deserve; from residential to commercial you can depend on us for affordable water pump services.
