A submersible well pump is the most efficient option for drawing the well water that you use for cleaning, cooking, and bathing in your Frederick or Montgomery County home up from the ground. If you are looking to install a submersible well pump in your home, the first order of business is to purchase a new well pump and hire a water treatment specialist to assemble its components and install it.
Once the well pump has been put together, a pretest is performed by turning the pump on to ensure that it is working before it is inserted into your well. If the well pump performs correctly, the well pump installation expert will lower the pump into the well, going slowly to prevent damage. The pump’s pitless adapter and check valve should both be engaged by this point to prevent leakage and other problems.
A new submersible well pump could revolutionize the way water is drawn from your well water supply. To arrange to have an experienced well pump systems specialist install a submersible pump on your Frederick, Montgomery, or Washington County property, call Tri-County Pumps at (877) 849-8455.

Do you have a sump pump in your basement, but are not quite sure that it is doing its job? If you have discovered water on the floor around your sump pit or have recently tested your sump pump and found that it does not seem to be in the best working order, there are a number of factors that could be to blame. Continue reading for some tips to help you determine if your actions are responsible for your sump pump problems.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Have you kept up with your sump pump’s maintenance needs as recommended in the owner’s manual? If not, this may be where the source of your problem lies. Dig out that manual or look it up online, and give your sump pump the attention and care it needs. Clean the grate at the bottom, and clear the vent hole in the discharge pipe if it is blocked. Check the sump pit for debris that could also be keeping the pump from working.
Sump Pump Capacity
Does your sump pump have the capacity necessary to pump water out of your basement sump pit at the rate it enters? Check your pump’s gallons per minute or gallons per hour rating, and consult your water treatment specialist about whether or not a replacement is a good idea.
Sump Pump Backup
Have you considered installing a backup system for your sump pump? Available in electric and hydro-powered options, a sump pump backup can help ensure that your basement remains free of water, even if your sump pump fails. To learn more about your backup sump pump options, contact a sump pump service expert.
If you are unable to determine what is wrong with your sump pump, it is important that you schedule an appointment with a sump pump service specialist in the near future. To arrange to have your pump inspected, repaired, or replaced by an experienced water treatment professional who serves Frederick County, Montgomery County, and Washington County, call Tri-County Pumps at (877) 849-8455.

Did you know that arsenic, lead, and chlorine are all potentially harmful to your health—and that they all might be present in your drinking water? If you drink your water right out of the tap, you might be getting more from your glass of water than just cool refreshment. Montgomery County water treatment facilities use chemicals to clean up the water before it reaches your home, but some of those chemicals stay behind and could harm your health. Instead of gambling with your water, use a water treatment system that harnesses UV light or reverse osmosis to make sure the water you drink and bathe in is safe for you and your family. Take a look at this infographic to learn more about common contaminants that could be present in your water and how you can treat your water for better taste and health. Please feel free to share this important info with your friends and family.
