Well Services

Not every plumber is trained in providing well services for people who utilize water wells for their drinking water and agricultural needs. But here at Five Star Plumbing, we offer a full range of well services, to keep your water running. We have more than 25 years of experience working with well systems. We perform well pump repair, well pump replacement, well casing repairs and more. We serve the greater Baltimore area, including Baltimore County, Harford County and Cecil County. We work 7 days a week, because your well doesn’t take weekends off.

We work when you need us to, with no overtime charges. We also offer 2 hour appointment windows so you’re not waiting around all day for the plumber to show up. And you can count on us for quality well services. We offer a 5 year warranty on parts and labor on all new plumbing installations.

Well Pump Service

We offer timely and competitively priced well pump service. That generally means same day well pump service at a price better than the other guys. If you’ve had a power outage, be sure to check the circuit breaker switch for your well pump. If it’s tripped, flipping it back may be all that’s needed to get your water running again. Another simple thing to check if your well pump won’t turn on is to make sure any on/off switches are set to the “on” position. Sounds simple, but you’d be amazed.

Call us for well pump service if your well is having issues, including:

  • Low water pressure
  • Dirty water
  • Loud or strange noises in the pipes
  • Air “spitting” from the faucet
  • No running water
  • Well pump runs constantly
  • You suspect a leak (pooling water, spongy ground)

Well Pump Repair

Our well pump repair services typically take less than two hours. From replacing the pressure switch to replacing the expansion tank, we’ve got you covered. Our vans are fully loaded with all of the replacement parts and tools we might need for any well pump service. We may ask you a few specific questions over the phone to make sure we have the right stuff. Got a smart phone? Sometimes taking a picture and texting it to us can be a big help.

Well Pump Replacement

If your well pump has failed, we can perform a well pump replacement to get things back to normal. We offer a 5 year warranty on parts and labor for new installation. A well pump replacement for a submersible well pump will generally take longer than a well pump replacement of an above ground well jet pump. See further information below about why you may want a constant pressure well pump to replace your old conventional well pump.

Well Water Testing

Just bought a property and you’re not sure where the well is? We can help with our professional well locating services. Thinking about moving your existing well? We can help with that, too. We have specialized equipment to help locate your well.

Well Pump Service

We offer sanitary, truck mounted submersible well pump pulling to keep contaminants from getting transferred back into your well. We inspect everything as it comes up out of the ground, to make the repairs right the first time. We offer free water quality testing, so we can test your well water for contaminants after any repairs or installation.

Well Casing Repair

Well casing repair is necessary after minor seismic events, or when heavy equipment runs over your well, or when the casing has deteriorated over time. A cracked well casing can allow sand and dirt into your well water. Well casing repair may involve removing the old corroded well casing and replacing it with a new well casing. If the damage is relatively minor, we may be able to use a well casing repair sleeve to maintain the casing wall while we patch the cracks to prevent any additional material from getting into the well.

Upgrade to a Constant Pressure Well Pump and Tank System

If you’re replacing your well pump, or if your water pressure drops in the bathroom when someone is washing dishes, or something similar, now may be the time to think about an upgrade to a constant pressure well pump system. A constant pressure pump (Variable Frequency Drive is another name) changes speed based on water demand, and keeps water pressure constant throughout the system.

The constant pressure pump installs in your existing well and connects to the control panel to ensure constant water pressure. The associated pressure tank ensures that a supply of pressurized water is always ready for use.

Water Treatment Systems

We also install and repair water treatment systems for your well water. We offer free water quality testing, and based on the results, can recommend a household water treatment system to help you with hard water, iron in the water, etc. you should probably get your well water tested on a yearly basis.
