Well Pump Repair

Well Pump Repair

Along with our standard plumbing repairs and installation, we offer full service well pump repair and water well services. We troubleshoot, diagnose, and perform all kinds of well pump repair and well repairs. We are experts at repairing jet pumps and traditional and continuous replacement submersible pumps. We complete most jobs in one trip. We work 7 days a week, because your water well doesn’t take weekends off.

If you’re looking for “well pump service in my area” you’ll be happy to know we serve the greater Baltimore area including Baltimore County, Harford County, Cecil County, and Howard County areas. We work with homeowners, agricultural, and commercial interests to provide what many of our customers view as Baltimore’s best water well service.

Collectively, we have more than 30 years of experience working with water well pumps and well systems. 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 water well service. We offer a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty on parts on all new well pump installations.

We offer timely and competitively priced water well service. That generally means same day 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 well 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. It sounds simple, but you’d be amazed.

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

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

Sanitary Water Well Service Protects Your Well Water.

A lot of companies that offer submersible well pump pulling lay the well piping and wire out on the ground because they don’t have the proper equipment. Not Five Star Plumbing Services! Our truck mounted well pump pulling system pulls the submersible well pump, piping and wire out of the well and rolls it up on a large reel that is mounted on our truck.

The huge advantage to having a truck mounted pump puller is that it is sanitary. Nothing touches the ground – which is very important because the ground might have bugs, animal feces, bacteria, and other contaminants that you don’t want transferred to your well.

Well Pump Replacement Services

Five Star Plumbing Services provides well pump replacement throughout the Baltimore area, including Baltimore County, Harford County, Cecil County, and Howard County areas. We serve both residential and commercial customers. Whether you’re upgrading your well pump or your old one is shot, our well pump replacement services will have you back up and running in no time. We offer well pump replacement services 7 days a week, because we know you depend on your water well on the weekends, too. Call 410-836-0118 for same day service.

Signs of a failing well pump include:

  • Well pump stops altogether – no water comes out of faucets
  • “Spitting” faucets
  • Drastic reduction in water pressure
  • Well pump is running constantly
  • High electric bill

There are a couple of things you can check before calling the plumber to repair or replace your well pump. For instance, if the well pump has shut off, check your electrical panel to make sure the circuit breaker for your pump and pressure tank is in the “on” position. If it’s off, turn it on and see if that solves your problem. If it immediately trips the circuit breaker, call in an expert plumber. Your next thing to check is your well pump pressure tank. Look at the pressure gauge to make sure it reads above 20 psi. If the tank is showing pressure, your lack of water, or low water pressure, is likely due to something inside the house or plumbing. No pressure indicates a problem with your well pump, pressure tank, switch, all of three, or the well pipe that carries the well water may have sprung a leak. Call Five Star Plumbing to diagnose the problem. Many times, the culprit is a faulty well pump pressure switch. Replacing the switch is an easy fix. But if there’s nothing wrong with the switch, or replacing it doesn’t fix the problem, you may have an issue with your pressure tank or well pump.

Should we find that your well water line be leaking in the ground, Five Star Plumbing can replace the pipe using our trenchless method for a fraction of the cost and mess. If we determine that simple repairs just won’t provide a long-term solution, we may suggest replacing your well pump or pressure tank, or both. We install and service both traditional well pumps and constant pressure pumps, and we replace both submersible well pumps for deeper wells, and above ground well jet pumps. Diagnosing an issue with a jet pump is pretty simple, since it’s above ground. Diagnosing an issue with a submersible pump involves well-pump pulling. Our trucks are equipped to provide sanitary well pump pulling, keeping everything off of the ground, to avoid contamination.

If you decide to replace your well pump and/or pressure tank, we’ll make sure the new well pump and tank are sized appropriately for your home or business. We may ask you a few questions about how many people live in the home, if you have a dishwasher and washing machine, and more. For businesses, we’ll ask about some of the same things, as well as your average daily water usage. There’s no sense in replacing your well pump and pressure tank with one that doesn’t have enough power to do the job. You also don’t need a system that provides more than what you need.

The good news is, an above ground well pump replacement or submersible well pump replacement may last you for another 10-15 years.

Constant Pressure Pumps

A constant pressure well pump has a number of advantages over traditional standard pressure well pumps. It offers:

  • Constant water line pressure
  • Allows for multiple tap use
  • Variable speed
  • Automatic restart
  • Low water safety shutoff

Well pump replacement with a constant pressure pump lets you say goodbye to low water pressure. The variable speed pump kicks it into high gear when a signal is sent to the controller that water is being used in your home. The more water being used, the harder the pump works to ensure you have enough water pressure to run the dishwasher and have someone showering at the same time. Of course, if you have a smaller home, or like your water pressure just fine, we will perform well pump replacement with a new standard pressure pump. We’ll also make sure everything is in working order with your pressure tank.

Well Casing Leak Repair

It can be difficult to know if you need well casing repair. The well casing is a steel pipe that seals and supports the sides of a drilled water well. Common symptoms of a leak or cracked well casing include:

  • The sudden appearance of dirt, sand, or debris in the water supply.
  • A reduction in well flow rate.
  • A new bacterial or other. contamination problem in the well water.

Leaks in a well casing risk carrying surface or groundwater contaminants into the drinking water delivered by the well. This can be a health risk to both people and livestock.  Before beginning well casing repair, we will determine if the leak is at the surface area or down in the well itself. We may lower a camera into the well to assess the situation and locate the leak. As part of our comprehensive well services, we raise buried well casings above grade and make repairs to damaged well casings. Repairing well casings that have been run over by a truck, car, or lawn mower is one of our specialties.

I am pleased with their professionalism. Chris came out to estimate at least 5 plumbing repairs. He explained options in detail. Matt fixed 4 of the 5 issues in 1 quick day. (We opted to not have the 5th issue repaired.) Pricing was fair. I will seek there bid in the future!

Needed water shut off valve moved in HVAC closet. Matt arrived on time and gave me a quote. It was a little more than I anticipated but he showed me what needed to be done and I agreed. As it turned out, the old valve would not shut off properly and he installed two shut offs, one to handle water flow closer to the water tank and another which was more accessible to me which is what I needed. The work was done in 90 minutes and I had two great valves installed which seem to be working fine.

The employees are friendly and talented, making them a pleasure to work with. We'll certainly by using them again.

I had the water pipe bringing water into my house break. Harford County turned the water off at midnight. Chris was by the next morning for a look and an estimate. He loaned me a washer hose and told me how to get water from my neighbor's hose bib (after permission, of course). The crew started work 2 days later and did a bang up job. The job took more copper pipe than was quoted and they stood by the estimate. I was very pleased with the attitude and work ethic of the plumbing crew on site. I would recommend 5 star without reservation

I had a polybutylene pipe replaced in my Abingdon, MD home. The job was done professionally and the workers were very neat. They put my yard back together so well I could barely tell that they were there. Everything went much better than I expected and I would highly recommend 5 Star Plumbing of Bel Air, MD.

Had a main water line leaking into the house Sunday night. After the County rep turned it off outside I called a few different companies to get an estimate on repairs. Chris and his crew won my business by being very professional and reasonably priced. Job was done very fast and you can’t even tell that they had to dig a trench in my front yard. I would definitely recommend 5 Star plumbing to anyone who needs plumbing services.

The company replaced the water supply line from the meter pit to the inside of our home. This was a trench- less installment and our concrete driveway was not cut or broken. The work was completed as promised and "to code". All permits and inspections were also completed as promised. In February, Five Star Plumbing replaced our water heater promptly and on our schedule after reviewing with us several options for heater capacity and warranty lengths. Again, we were pleased with the installation and the professionalism of all staff at the company.

I contacted 5 Star Plumbing about my water heater that was leaking in my basement 5 minutes before close of business on a Friday night. Chris, the owner, sent a tech out that night who quickly stopped the leak and ordered a replacement water heater that was installed the next day. The tech was polite and efficient and cleaned everything up and somehow removed the old water heater without getting water anywhere on the way out the door. 5 Star Plumbing made an unexpected repair much more bearable - very grateful!!

It is somewhat unusual for a company's title to reflect its service. These guys have my five star rating. Without going into details about what they had to do and the manner in which they did it, I recommend them to anyone with a plumbing problem or concern.

I called them at 8am on a Monday Morning due to an issue that happened over the weekend. Not only did they answer the phone but were able to give me a reliable time frame for arrival. He said he would be there between noon and 2pm and he showed up at 1pm. He was fast and courteous and had the job completed quite quickly. I will definitely call him next time I have a need.

My failing hot water heater came from Home Depot and the heater itself was covered under warranty. Their contractor wanted $450 to replace it for labor delivery and removal. They came out and said that they could not do the job because they had to lift the empty hot water heater out.I picked up the new water heater from Home Depot and called 5 Star, they were the only ones who answered, spoke to Portia at the office who was very friendly, and they were out here within 18 hours of the call which was not an emergency.Excellent service, no issues with the install, very professional and they were cheaper! They also removed the old heater.Highly recommeded

A lifesaver during a very bad time to have plumbing problems! After a storm of this size, it meant a lot to me that these guys could fit me into the schedule on such short notice and stop a small (but potentially serious) problem from becoming a whole lot worse. THANK YOU!
