Water Well Contractor or Plumber – Which One Should You Call?

People often contact water well contractors when they have any type of issue with their home supply or the equipment that works to provide water for the household. And, in many cases, calling a well service company is the right course of action.

However, some problems require the expertise of a plumber rather than a professional well contractor. If you’re not sure who to call, the following guide may help. Or, simply ask the Z-Team contractors at Mike Zimmerman Well Service – we’ll point you in the right direction.

When to call a water well contractor

When to Call a Water Well Contractor

Water well professionals generally deal with equipment outside of the home – not the in-house plumbing.

You should contact a well service company if you need:

  • Well water testing and treatment
  • Water pump repair or replacement
  • Well casing leak repair
  • Broken pressure tank repair
  • Sanitary well cap installation
  • Storage reservoir installation
  • Well rehabilitation
  • Well water softening
  • Well winterization

A professional well contractor is also the right expert to call for routine maintenance and annual inspections – both of which can minimize the chances of future repair problems.

When to Call a Plumber Instead

Plumbers specialize in repairing equipment located inside the home. This includes problems with pipes, fixtures, sinks, drains, toilets, bathtubs and water heaters. In addition, plumbers often handle sewer and water supply line issues, fixture installations and repairs for water-using appliances.

As you might have noticed, the list above does not include working with water wells. While some plumbers may be familiar with well components, this isn’t the norm. So, if your issue involves your private well in any way, contacting a plumber simply doesn’t make sense.

What if You’re Not Sure Where the Problem Lies?

You’re not a plumber or water well contractor – and often, knowing the cause of a problem takes the expertise of one of these professionals. So, who should you contact if you really don’t know what type of issue you’re dealing with?

We recommend calling a reputable local well service company. Most offer general advice over the phone, and if your problem is better suited to a plumber, they’ll let you know.
