Well Water Repair

Is your water not working? Your water well is nothing more than a hole in the ground with a casing to contain the water, for the most part – it’s pretty simple. However, what’s inside your well is a bit of a different story. Most often, problems in your well occur with the pumping equipment that works to get you your water day in and day out. If that equipment isn’t working, you probably don’t have water – but we can fix that.

Booster Pumps

A water well booster pump is used for just what it sounds like – boosting water pressure when it lags. Do you need better water pressure to enjoy a shower that doesn’t sputter? Or maybe you’re tired of waiting for your washing machine to finish its cycle. For residential and commercial customers – if you have unacceptable water pressure, a booster pump from Griswold Plumbing Services could be just what you need to meet your demands for better and more reliable water pressure.

Well Locating

Whether you’ve just moved into a new home or forgot where your well is located, let Griswold Plumbing Services save you time, money and headaches with our state-of-the-art equipment. Save your lawn from unnecessary digging and damage. We’ll be able to locate your well quickly and easily. If you’re in need of locating your well, call us to help you find it.

Submersible Pumps

Griswold Plumbing Services is an experienced provider of repairs and installation for both conventional single phase and variable speed three phase submersible pumps. As the name implies, a submersible pump is fully sealed and completely submerged underwater before pumping occurs. More efficient than a jet pump, which pulls water from the surface – a submersible pump pushes water to the surface so that it may then be drawn through a water line and used in your home or business.

Water Pressure System

For many home owners, having constant water pressure isn’t crucial, that is, until their pressure drops off when they need it most. Using a private well is a great source for water that’s reliable – but low water pressure can be an irritating problem. Constant pressure systems installed by Griswold Plumbing Services are the inexpensive answer.

Emergency Well Service

You need a reliable supply of water – that’s why you have a water system. But what happens when your water well system fails, malfunctions, or doesn’t deliver the reliability you need? Too often, water well systems fail when we need them the most, and that’s where Griswold Plumbing Services comes in with 24 Hour Well Service and Pump Repair.


  • Frequently Asked Questions About Well Pumps & Tanks

    How do I determine if I need a new well pump?

    If your water pressure has been decreasing over several months, or if you have no water at all, these could be signs that your well pump is failing to do its job.

    The first thing to do when you have no water is to shut off electrical power to the pump and to your water heater. That will prevent possible additional damage.

    Then, it’s time to discover the source of the problem. Your best bet is to contact a reputable, experienced well contractor like Griswold Plumbing. Your well pump may be the most likely suspect, but there could be other reasons for your dry spell.

    What are the signs of pump and/or tank problems?

    Decreased water pressure is one sign of a possible problem with a well pump or water tank.

    Here are others:

    • Dirty water
    • Loud or odd noises
    • Air “spitting” from the faucet
    • Unusually high electric bills (which may indicate a pump having to run continuously to maintain water pressure)

    Meanwhile, anything that puts a strain on the well pump can cause it to fail prematurely.

    Is my expansion tank losing pressure?

    The tank is a closed container for the pump to fill with water. As water fills the tank, the air within becomes compressed, usually through an air-filled vinyl bladder, until pressure is high enough to trip the pressure switch. When someone opens a faucet, air pressure in the tank will squeeze the bladder and force water out. When enough water is used to lower the pressure, the switch turns the pump back on and the cycle repeats. If the tank loses its pressure (its “pre-charge,” which comes with the tank from the factory), the pump must work overtime to keep the tank full.

    Will my well pump stop working during a power outage?

    Unless the well pump has a backup power supply, such as a battery or a backup generator, it will usually stop working if you lose your electricity.

    Should I tackle repairs as they are needed or get a maintenance plan?

    Common well pump repairs include replacing the pressure switch or replacing the tank.

    It’s a good idea, well experts say, to schedule regular well maintenance, which we offer here at Griswold Plumbing.

    Meanwhile, prepare for a significant cost if you need a new well pump, depending on whether you have a shallow-bored well or a drilled well. For drilled wells, the price of replacement and installation depends on shaft depth and pump horsepower.

    How does my well pump pull water from the well?

    Older or shallow wells may use an above-ground jet pump to pull water from the well.

    Submersible electric pumps that push water up are more common. They typically feature a sealed motor that is lowered into the well and has an above-ground power source.

    Do submersible well pumps really last 25 years?

    Fortunately, most submersible pumps are designed to last up to 25 years, but they won’t last as long if a well contains high levels of sediment or other particles.

    Well pump contractors can usually repair wells that rely on above-ground pumps more easily than those with submersible pumps. Repairing a submersible pump nearly always involves pulling it from the well.

    What should I know before hiring a well service contractor?

    Be sure to hire a well service provider that is qualified and has appropriately licensed at the municipal or state level. Griswold Plumbing is fully licensed with the state of Connecticut and is insured.
