Water Well & Pump Systems Repair and Installation

Hole in water line leads to extensive well pump damage.

 

We were called on Friday evening for a house on the Indian River that was having pump issues.  All of the sudden they didn’t have any water to shower for their Friday night out!

Upon first assessment it was found that the pump had been running for an extended period and had gotten too hot and melted the plastic fitting in the pump.   (First problem…we don’t use plastic fitting in pumps for this very reason)

After getting the first pump repaired we noticed the second pump was getting air from somewhere, but how??  That led us to the well…

The homeowner was having their dock/seawall moved.  The worker for that company had accidentally jack hammered a hole in the water line.  The worker then turned off the well and didn’t notify the homeowner of the issue. The worker believed the pipe he had hit was one from an old sprinkler system, yet he turned off the well.   All the while, 2 days, the homeowner was unaware his well had been turned off and he was not aware his well pumps were running continuously trying to pull water.  The homeowner had enough water in his aerator to last him and was never aware his well had been turned off.

A simple 5 minute repair at the moment it happened turned into a 10-12 hour repair on the weekend in excess of $1500.00.

2 burnt out well pumps, a water line full of sand, a weekend full of repairs, 2 missed date nights and an unhappy customer could’ve been avoided easily.

Tip for Home Sellers

Order your own property inspection in advance.

Once you have entered an agreement to sell your home, your buyer will almost certainly get a home inspection of the systems and components of your home, including the heating, cooling, plumbing and electrical system, as well as the structural components.  So be prepared for the your buyer to come back to you with the inspection in hand to either renegotiate your sales price, or to ask you to fix items of your home prior to closing the sale.

Plumber Vero Beach - IRC PlumbingAt the point in the process where this happens, you have possibly entered an agreement to purchase another home.  To avoid costly delays, you may be forced to have repair work done in a hurry which is almost always more expensive.  To avoid this headache, a seller can order their own proactive home inspection and then repair the items that will otherwise pop up on the buyer’s home-inspection report in the most cost effective way. Simple fixes such as cleaning downspouts, repairing flashing and aiming sprinklers properly can avoid unnecessary renegotiation.

If you decide to follow our advice and you need a great home inspector, you can’t do better than John Vetter and Sons.  Call my friend Jason at 772 696 3347 and tell him Lucien sent you.
