Doylestown water well systems rely on a type of pump to provide water flow, measured in gallons per minute, and pressure, measured in P.S.I. The most common type of pump is a submersible pump that is inside of the well. Submersible pumps have become the industry standard type of well pump for many years, with motor sizes ranging from 0.5-200 H.P. and flow rates from 5-1000+ G.P.M. Most households will operate sufficiently with 10 G.P.M. In order to properly size a submersible pump, the expert Doylestown well pump installers at Ivyland Well & Pump will need to determine the total dynamic head, or "TDH" for your system. This is done by figuring out your well's pumping water level, friction loss in the piping, and the system pressure converted to feet. Obviously your well pump contractor must have considerable experience in repairing or replacing well pumps, and at Ivyland Well & Pump, our professional Doylestown water well pump experts fit the bill! With proper installation and maintenance, you should expect years of service from your Doylestown well pump.
If you have no water, low water pressure, cloudy or discolored water, issues with your water's taste or smell, or unusual sounds coming from your pipes, your water well pump might be to blame. Your well's pump is the heart of your Doylestown water well system, and the tank and controls are its brain. A well pump and tank system that's set up correctly is just as important as the well itself, and can give you a well water system that lasts a long time and has appropriate water pressure and flow. Both the pump and tank need to be sized accurately and working properly in order for you to get the best water quality, pressure and flow from your Doylestown area well. At Ivyland Well & Pump, we keep an inventory of different brands and types of high quality well pump and tank products from respected manufacturers such as Goulds Well Pumps, Grundfos Well Pumps, Well-X-Trol Tanks, Franklin Electric, and more.
After we have drilled your well, we can design a well pump system for your specific water needs, ensuring that your new pump and tank are sized correctly. If you have an existing well with low water pressure, or no water, or the water smells bad or is discolored, or the well pump is running more often than it should, our skilled Doylestown PA well pump and tank professionals can help. We provide EMERGENCY services by replacing your worn, outdated or damaged pump or tank with new, more efficient products so that your clear well water will flow freely again.
We install and replace both submersible pumps and jet pumps in the Doylestown PA 18901 area. Jet pumps pull water upwards, while submersible pumps push water upwards. Choosing a jet pump or submersible pump usually depends on the depth of your well. In general, submersible pumps are most efficient for deep wells, while jet pumps are best used for shallow wells. Our Doylestown PA well pump experts will know which type of pump is best for your specific well.
A constant pressure pump (also called a "variable speed pump") keeps your Doylestown well water pressure and flow consistent by constantly adapting your well pump performance to meet your water demands. With a constant pressure pump, the pump speed increases or decreases in line with your water demand. A variable speed pump makes your well water pressure similar to that of a city water system, and is a preferred method when water usage needs are high, such as for larger homes, farms, nurseries, factories, etc.
Your water well's pressure tank maintains water pressure in your Doylestown PA area home or business, allowing water to flow at a uniform rate. The tank gives you instant access to your well water without having to manually turn on the pump like in the old days. It prolongs the pump's lifespan by allowing the water to be drawn without the pump cycling on and off each time.
Like any part of your Doylestown PA area water well system, a well water pressure tank doesn't last forever, and problems with the tank might not become evident until you end up with no water and damage has already been done to the pump. A water tank that's not working properly or is not sized the right way can cause the pump to run too often or not at all, which can damage both the well and pump. Pressure switches, valves and gauges can suffer, and the rubber on the diaphragm inside the tank can harden and crack over time. We install, repair and replace all makes and models of well tanks in the Doylestown PA 18901 PA area, as well as tank parts such as pressure switches, pressure valves, and gauges. We can also repair waterlogged tanks.
A sump pump can keep your Doylestown home dry by automatically pumping water away from the foundation and out of your basement and crawlspace.
