What Is a Jet Pump?

Jet PumpToday, the vast majority of houses in the U.S. have their own water supply; simply turn on the faucet in your sink and you can experience water pressure in Frederick County. However, the population of people who understand exactly how they get water to their houses is far smaller. For example, do you know what a jet pump is?

Jet pumps are used when your water lies just below the surface of the ground. These shallow wells are tapped with jet pumps, which suction the water from the well and transport it to your home. This system depends on the use of air pressure to move the water vertically, much like a straw in a glass of water. Unlike a straw, however, jet pumps also make use of electric motors and centrifugal pumps.

Would you like to know more about jet pumps? Call Tri-County Pumps at (301) 432-0330 today. We are a Frederick County based company that specializes in plumbing, water treatment systems, well pump systems and septic systems. Please do not hesitate to visit our website in order to find out more about our water treatment options.

Is Your Hot Water Heater Heading for a Meltdown?

Homeowners tend to care deeply about their water quality in Montgomery County, and they do so for good reason; water quality can impact your household in a number of ways. The temperature of your water is also important, which is determined by the efficiency of your hot water heater. Keep reading to find out if your hot water heater is heading for a meltdown.

Much like foods, certain types of water treatment appliances tend to emit distinctive smells when they expire, and hot water heaters are among them. In fact, a rotten egg smells about the same as the water from a malfunctioning hot water heater. In the case of a water heater, this smell comes from excess levels of sulfur, bacteria, and hydrogen. This could indicate a problem with your anode, and can be remedied by a professional water treatment service.

Hot Water HeaterLeaking
If your hot water heater is leaking, there is likely a serious problem that warrants professional attention. There are a number of possible sources of the leak, including the temperature and pressure relief valve, the water drain valve, and a leak in the tank itself. Never attempt to fix a hot water heater leak on your own, and keep in mind that if your tank is leaking, you may have to replace the entire unit.

No Hot Water
The main purpose of your hot water heater is to provide your household with warm or hot water when you need it. If it is not efficiently serving this purpose, there is something wrong with the system and it should be looked at by a professional water treatment service. Keep in mind that older hot water heaters are more likely to break down.

Is your hot water heater heading for a meltdown? Call the water treatment professionals at Tri-County Pumps at (301) 432-0330. We are proud to serve the Montgomery County and surrounding areas with water softeners and septic services such as septic system pumping.
