Construction & Contractors Blog

If you're having a well set up, it requires a pump to transport water effectively. You want this pump to be high-quality, as it will mean greater pumping performance and efficiency. You'll have an opportunity to buy a great well pump if you're smart about the selection process. 

Go With a Pump Already Put Together

You have the option of ordering a pump that you have to assemble yourself, or models that come pre-built. The latter is probably the best choice, especially if you don't have a lot of experience working with these pumps, as you may never have had a water well before.

Pre-built pumps will already have the right components in the right place, and then it's just a matter of setting the pump up at the right location that can lead to optimal pumping performance for your water well. 

See What Pump Specifications are Required

Every water well pump will have particular specifications that make it unique. If you find out what specifications are best for your particular well system, then you'll have an easier time shopping, and your selection will have the best shot at working out great over the years without a lot of complications.

Some specifications to review in great detail before making your selection include pump horsepower, dimensions, voltage, flow rate, and overall shape. If you're not sure what these specs need to be for effective pumping performance over the years, hire a water well installation company. They can make a couple of suggestions that can lead to optimal well performance.

Make Sure Safety Ropes Are Included and High-Quality

If you have a water well that makes it necessary to lower the pump into the ground a pretty sizeable distance, then you want to make sure the pump comes with a safety rope. It's there to help you raise the well pump up in a convenient manner when it has to be serviced.

After confirming the pump has a safety rope, make sure it's made of high-quality materials that will hold up around the conditions it will be exposed to. Then each time you go to pull the pump up, you'll know its weight will be supported effectively. 

Taking full advantage of a water well is possible if you find the right well pump. Although the options may seem broad, you can save a lot of time and improve your selection by utilizing the right search protocol.

Pool House Parties: Building Your Backyard Escape

When I decided to turn my backyard into a pool and spa space, I wanted to have a pool house built. Adding a pool house would give me somewhere for everyone to shower and change without tracking pool water and dirt into the main house. I worked with a local contractor to construct a pool house with an outdoor kitchen, outdoor showers, and full indoor restroom facilities as well as a game room and changing rooms. I created this site to journal the process so that I could hopefully inspire others to do the same. I hope this site takes some of the mystery out of the construction process for you so you can build the backyard structure you've always wanted.
