There are two basic types of well pumps.
The electric motor and the pump are installed as one unit in the well. Submersible well pumps are long cylinders usually 4 inches in diameter and 2 to 4 feet long. An electric cable is attached to the motor, and a pipe comes up the well from the pump into the home.
To ensure that water supply is reliable, submersible pumps may be set hundreds of feet beneath the water in a well. When the well pump switches on, the motor runs and turns a series of impellers that push water up out of the well. Compared to a Jet Pump the Submersible pump is more energy efficient and allows for better water pressure in your home. They are also much quieter than jet pumps.
Unlike Submersible pumps, the motor and pump are not in the well but are usually close to the well in a basement or utility room. Jet pumps work by pumping water under pressure through an ejector into a discharge pipe coming up from the well. As the jet of high pressure water is forced into the discharge pipe, it creates a vacuum and causes water to be drawn from the well.
Back at the surface, some of the water is piped to your home plumbing and some is routed back to the ejector to raise more water from the well. Shallow well jet pumps have the jet assembly directly attached to the pump and are not effective at depths below 25 feet but have the advantage of having no working parts down the well, so they can be used in narrow diameter wells. Due to the inefficiencies of jet well pumps they utilize more electricity than submersible well pumps.
Today’s well systems are much smarter than the original systems. We offer a number of options for homeowner who is tired of low pressure or a low yielding well.
There's nothing worse than enduring a shower with low water pressure. Boost your shower power with a constant pressure system. Whether you have city water or a private well system, Bennett and Cole has a constant water pressure system for your home.
Upgrading Your Water System
If your well is similar to the BEFORE drawing, with an old style tank and/or a pit housing, the well head below the surface, call us about an upgrade that can be much more sanitary, efficient and in compliance with state and local codes. If you have a jet well pump, we can replace it with a quiet & efficient submersible well pump. Jet pump systems can lose prime when the well water is drawn down too far. Submersible pumps never need priming. Ask us about the additional benefits.
Older pressure tanks do not have air to water separation. When the air mixes with water or escapes, the tank waterlogs. This will cause your pump to short cycle or run constantly which can cause the pump to wear out or fail prematurely. We can install a diaphragm-style tank to assure you of a much longer pump life and eliminate water logging problems. The marketability, livability and value of your home are greatly improved.

Water Harvesting Systems
Bennett and Cole realizes no two wells are alike. In some situations, wells become very low producing causing the homeowner to constantly run out of water. This limits how many showers, loads of laundry, toilet flushes, etc… can be accommodated making simple day to day chores impossible.
Bennett and Cole can design a customized water harvesting system. These systems harvest the water and store it in tanks when you don’t need it. Them when requested, the stored water is available for use. This allows for a number of benefits.
- Eliminates need to drill new well at a much higher cost
- Provides protection of pump so it won't run dry hastening its failure
- Inventories water so you can use water when you need it, not when the well can yield it.
