Expert water well maintenance.

When it comes to maintaining your water well and pump system, the temptation to perform DIY maintenance might be strong, especially if you’re looking to save a few bucks. However, before you grab your tools and embark on a DIY well servicing adventure, it’s crucial to understand why relying on qualified professionals is a wiser and ultimately more cost-effective choice.

Water wells are complex systems that require specialized knowledge, equipment, and experience to ensure they operate efficiently and provide safe, clean water. Here are several compelling reasons why you should think twice about tackling well maintenance on your own:

  1. Complexity of Well Systems: Water well systems are intricate, involving various components such as pumps, tanks, pipes, and electrical connections. Properly maintaining and troubleshooting these components requires in-depth knowledge of how they interact and function together. A professional well service provider has the expertise to navigate this complexity effectively.

  2. Safety Concerns: Working on a well system can be hazardous. It often involves dealing with electrical connections, heavy equipment, and confined spaces. Without the appropriate training and safety measures, there’s a risk of accidents or injuries. Professionals are trained to prioritize safety throughout the maintenance process.

  3. Regulatory Compliance: Well systems are subject to regulations and codes that vary by location. Qualified professionals are well-versed in these regulations and can ensure that your well complies with local and state requirements. DIY attempts may inadvertently lead to non-compliance, which can result in legal issues or fines.

  4. Water Quality Assurance: The quality of your well water is essential for the health and well-being of your family. Professionals not only service your well but also conduct water quality testing to ensure that the water is safe for consumption. DIY maintenance may neglect this critical aspect, putting your health at risk.

  5. Effective Problem Diagnosis: Identifying the root cause of well problems can be challenging for those without specialized knowledge. Professionals have experience in diagnosing issues accurately and efficiently. They can pinpoint problems, whether they are related to the pump, pressure tank, or well casing, and provide effective solutions.

  6. Cost-Efficiency: Contrary to the misconception that DIY saves money, attempting well maintenance without proper training and tools can lead to costly mistakes. You may inadvertently damage components or fail to address underlying issues, resulting in more extensive repairs or replacements down the line. Professional maintenance can prevent costly future problems.

  7. Longevity of Your Well System: Regular professional maintenance can significantly extend the life of your well system. By ensuring that all components are functioning optimally and addressing issues promptly, you can avoid premature system failures that would require expensive replacements.

  8. Peace of Mind: Hiring a qualified well service provider gives you peace of mind, knowing that your water supply is in the hands of experts. You can trust that they will handle all aspects of maintenance, from inspection to repairs and water quality testing, leaving you with clean, safe, and reliable well water.

In conclusion, the decision to entrust your well maintenance to professionals is a choice that not only safeguards your immediate water supply but also secures the long-term health of your well system and provides you with invaluable peace of mind. While the initial allure of DIY well maintenance may revolve around potential cost savings, it’s vital to delve deeper into the myriad reasons why relying on seasoned experts is the superior course of action.

First and foremost, let’s revisit the notion of potential risks. Undertaking well maintenance without the requisite expertise and equipment can introduce a host of dangers, from electrical hazards when working on pumps to physical injuries while handling heavy equipment or navigating confined spaces. Professionals, on the other hand, are not only trained to handle these risks effectively but are also equipped with the necessary safety measures to mitigate them. Your well-being and the safety of those involved should always be paramount.

Regulatory compliance is another critical aspect that often goes overlooked in DIY scenarios. Well systems are subject to a web of regulations, codes, and guidelines that can vary significantly from one location to another. Navigating this regulatory landscape requires in-depth knowledge and experience, both of which professional well service providers possess. Compliance ensures that your well meets local and state requirements, safeguarding you from potential legal issues or fines that could arise from well-related non-compliance.

A crucial dimension that underscores the wisdom of hiring professionals is water quality assurance. Your well water’s quality directly impacts your family’s health, and it should never be compromised. Certified professionals not only service your well but also conduct comprehensive water quality testing to ascertain that the water is safe for consumption. DIY maintenance attempts may inadvertently overlook this critical aspect, putting your health and that of your loved ones at risk.

Efficient problem diagnosis is another facet where professional expertise shines. Identifying the root cause of well issues can be a formidable challenge for those lacking specialized knowledge. However, professionals bring years of experience to the table, enabling them to diagnose problems accurately and efficiently. Whether the issue lies within the pump, pressure tank, well casing, or elsewhere in the system, professionals are adept at pinpointing the problem and providing effective solutions.

When considering the economics of well maintenance, it’s crucial to understand that DIY attempts are not necessarily the cost-saving endeavors they might appear to be. In fact, they can lead to unintended and costly mistakes. Amateur efforts might inadvertently damage well components or fail to address underlying issues adequately. These oversights can result in more extensive repairs or even the need for complete system replacements in the future. In contrast, professional maintenance is an investment that prevents costly problems down the line, protecting your financial interests.

Furthermore, the longevity of your well system is intricately linked to regular professional maintenance. By ensuring that all components operate at peak performance and addressing issues promptly, you can stave off premature system failures that would necessitate expensive replacements. In essence, the return on investment from professional well servicing extends far beyond the immediate cost and preserves the functionality of your well system for years to come.

In conclusion, the decision to entrust your well maintenance to qualified professionals is a commitment to the safety, quality, and longevity of your water supply. It grants you the invaluable peace of mind that comes from knowing experts are diligently overseeing every aspect of your well’s well-being, from thorough inspection to prompt repairs and comprehensive water quality testing. So, when it comes to your well, choose the path of expertise, and leave it in the capable hands of those who possess the knowledge and experience to keep your water flowing smoothly and your family in good health.

I had a leak in my water line from our well tank. The guys talked me through fixing the leak over the phone and saved me an emergency visit and money. Companies usually do not do this. Upstanding company quick response, polite, and I will refer them to anyone who needs well service.

Derrick deserves 10 stars! Our well pump stopped working for the third time in two years! Another company had replaced it twice and would not even respond to our call for help! I contacted Derrick at 9 pm on a Friday as there were guests at the house with no water. He was several hours away with his family on vacation. He left his family and arrived at the house by midnight and had a new pump installed and water restored by 2:30am! AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE! AMAZING BUSINESSMAN! Highly recommend! Thank you!

I'd like to share the story here about how Coomer's saved us from the daunting task and expense of having to drill a new well. A few months ago another company had installed a new pump for us after it burned up due to low water levels in the well from the filling of a backyard pond. They also installed a pump saver, to ensure that if the water level got low again the pump would not be harmed. After that job was complete, we had just enough water for a few toilet flushes before the pump saver would kick on and shut the water off. We spent two months thinking our well was critically low on water...showering and doing laundry at various friend's houses while we tried to figure what to do next. Meanwhile, the company who put in the pump had few answers for us aside from the conclusion that our well must be drying up and therefore would need to redrill it or dig a new one. After a frustrating few weeks of back and forth regarding the next steps, I decided to call another company for a second opinion. Calling Coomer's Well that day was definitely one of the best decisions that I have made recently! After listening to our predicament, Derek thoughtfully and thoroughly explained all the possible scenarios he could forsee, along with the necessary steps that could be taken to fix the water issues. For the first time as a well owner, I understood how the water system for the house works, what effects the water tables, and what options I had moving forward. He was genuinely patient and kind, which I deeply value in a business these days. I got off the phone feeling hopeful and then departed for an international trip, putting Derek in touch with my partner to handle the next steps. The day Croomer's came out to evaluate the well, my partner called me while happily sitting in a tub full of water, informing me that our issue had been resolved. Apparently the pump saver needed some simple adjustment and was shutting off automatically even though the well had water the whole time! The other company had already assured us that they looked at all the potential issues. If it weren't for Derek and Gary's knowledge of the system, we very likely would have initiated the process of drilling a new well. We are beyond grateful for the whole of the experience with this company and I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for a dependable expert in the field.

Called these guys after 3pm,. I live 45min. from them. I was hoping to get my pump working. It just started snowing. Those guys were at my house in about an hour, worked into the cold night. Explained everything, totally up-front and transparent. In 2hrs., everything repaired. Very reasonable. I felt like they did a really good job. Water's strong. Real good guys. Recommended without reservation.

We feel we were extremely fortunate when we contacted Coomer's. Our water was getting lower and lower and we all figured out it wasn't the hot water heater after all, but something wrong with our well. But even during these times when parts, even wire, are not easily obtained, these guys worked in freezing weather even into the night to get our water back on and better than before! They explained everything they were doing and why, and made sure we were ok with what they suggested. It really warms my heart when I run into a company with folks like this. We could tell they really wanted us to have water back and running as soon as possible. For what they did, their price was very fair and we of course appreciate that too. I'm the kind of guy who let's my friends and neighbors know when I've found a great company. I know they are booked up like most folks are right now, but it never hurts for people to have a solid, honest source to call when their well goes out. Other than being a very satisfied customer, I have no other connection to Coomer's Well and Pump. Just wanted to spread the word and give them yet another 5 star rating. Notice their perfect score out of 42 reviews? That's hard to achieve!

We used Coomers a few days ago. My ninety five year old mother had been without water for ten days. We had flooding in the basement due to the pump leaking as well as other issues. I went through Home Advisor and Derrick was the first to call. He took care of the issue right away. He wasn't satisfied with the first pump he put in. So he changed it out. Going out of his way to get the new pump. It works wonderfully. Mom is so pleased as am I. I would recommend them to anyone who needs this sort of work done. Even my husband commented on what a neat job he done. That's a first! I want to thank Derrick for doing a fantastic job for us. You are truly amazing, I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Don't find many people like this . Give them a try. You'll love them to!!

Derek came out on a Sunday morning to replace my well pump. He is extremely knowledgeable and was very patient explaining what needed to be done and also explained my system to me and gave me tips on maintaining my system. His has an outstanding crew, top notch equipment and fair prices. They completed the job without issue and I am 100% satisfied. I highly recommend Coomer's.

Man, I was in a bad spot. Bought a home with a malfunctioning well. I’m a general contractor, but I have little experience with wells. Gary Coomer was the only guy out of 15 calls that cared my family had no water. He worked after hours to fix my system and made my drinking water safe. He corrected numerous issues. He taught me everything about my system. His prices were reasonable and he gave me top notch parts. Gary is a great guy. Use him.
