Pumps and Tanks

Most residential homes in the Vernon CT area have 2 types of pumps and tanks.

  • Submersible type well pump is underground outside of your home, located in a casing usually with a blue cap above your lawn.
  • Jet style well pump is inside your house, usually in basement or crawl spaces.
  • Both types of pumps do need maintenance, service, and inspections annually to make sure everything is working as designed.
  • Tanks are located after the pump. The tank is a pressurized water reservoir for your home. They range in many different sizes, with specialized controls. As your tank gets older it will lose the compressed air in the tank, or can rupture and would need to be replaced.
  • Tanks come in epoxy coated steel tanks or fiberglass types for high moisture areas. These tanks need to be serviced by a licensed repair technician, If problems occur and are not repaired or replaced properly, your water system can be compromised.
