Homes and businesses on a well based water system rely on a submersible or jet pump to get water. Our technicians are trained to service and install both pump types. On larger systems, we work with the manufacturer to design a pumping system that fits the situation.
Circulating pumps have a variety of uses in your plumbing and heating system. Whether it is helping with geothermal loops, boilers or domestic hot water, adding one to your system may provide a solution to a comfort issue you’re dealing with.
Sump pumps remove water from sump pits or basements. These are ideal for buildings located close to bodies of water or springs, or if you home has a history of flooding during snow melts or heavy rains. Whether it is a stand alone sump pump, you’re installing one with a back up system, or you need a sump pit, we can help.
For homes that have a sewage pit in their basement, we sell replacement pumps. If the sewage pit has become damaged, we can help you replace that too! Let us know if we can help with any of your pumping needs!
Used to protect closed water systems and hot water tanks from excessive pressure caused by thermal expansion, an expansion tank may be a solution to your plumbing issues. These tanks also help reduce water hammer noises. Systems that have backflow preventors may have find an expansion tank beneficial, especially if your pressure relief valve has a history of leaking on your water heater.
A pressure tank helps well water systems provide constant pressure to the home. By storing a small resevoir of water that activates and shuts off the call for water from the pump. It also helps preserve the life of your pump by allowing it to only run when needed instead of all the time.
Flooded basements and water damage are never good, and the worry of potential flooding can cause undue stress. Remove that stressor by adding a pump alarm for your sump or sewage pump that will alert your phone if there are any issues or add a sensor under your water heater for early leak detection.
Everyone should have the option for a comfortable home during a heat wave. That is why we offer central air conditioning and ductless options. Contact our office to set up a free quote.
