I called them for Well service. We have used them in the past.
The person who answered the phone listened to what issue we were having with our well.
They told me the scheduler was not in they would call us back.
They never did call us back.
I got the sense when speaking to them originally that they did not want the work....More /> Apparently I was correct. I do not beg contractors to do work for me, so I did not call them back.
I called another well service company.

One late Sunday evening, we suddenly found we had no water. We called
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
& Supply early Monday morning. During the initial phone call they asked us to try a few things with the water filtration system as part of a process of elimination. When none of those worked, they came out within an hour. They called on their way over to give us a heads-up that they were on the road, and arrived exactly the time they said they would be. I was impressed already.
They rechecked the electrical box again and checked the water filtration system. They said it was definitely a problem with the pump or the wiring in the well. They explained what they were going to do, and gave a heads-up on several things that it could be. They then proceeded to check and found it was a broken wire and bad/very old pump that needed to be replaced. They quickly wrote up an estimate, itemizing all costs, explained our different payment options clearly, told us how long the job might take depending on what they found (they even gave a minimum/maximum timeframe of the work to be completed), answered our questions and proceeded to go about their work replacing the items. Afterward, they gave us instructions on how to flush the system before we turned the water back on. We followed their instructions, then did the test they suggested to ensure that the water was clear, and we had water within the hour.
Great experience overall and better than any of the service providers we have used for our water system. We plan to call this company again in the future, should any additional problems arise.

Received the kit within 3-5 days. Directions were followed in applying the disinfection substance to the well water. Waited 10 days as directed before collecting a water sample to return to the provider in their prepaid envelope. The provider then, sent an analysis of the water condition. Very satisfied! Everything done in a timely manner.

Things went very well. We are about an hour away from Anoka, but they kept us in the loop on when they left the shop. Arrived on time. A short assessment, and the problem was down the well shaft. The technician pulled his truck into the yard and began pulling the pipe out of the well shaft. An examination of the wire leading the pump showed wear. While the technician was getting the pump refitted into the shaft, he noticed the pressure tank was filled with water. In all we got a new pressure tank, all new fittings, and the pump rewired. Excellent service.

was here when he said he would be (even a few minutes early), and promptly fixed the problem. He was polite and it was obvious that he knew what he was doing. We would call him again for any problems with our well.

and his crew were wonderful. It has been two years since this installation. He used the best material and it has run perfect ever since this install. The well went dead early this year 2014, I called him out and it was fixed the next day. After two years of irrigation I still recommend

Our water stopped working, so we called C&J to figure out what was wrong. They had been out before about a month prior to this service to perform a $100 routine inspection, and at this time they believed the well pump had a small leak, but nothing major. They told us to pull the pump during this inspection in order to verify would be $450. They arrived on the Monday we called them and called us before to make sure we would be there when they arrived. Very punctual and responsive. With a little research, they found the problem was in the well pump, so re-quoted us $450 to remove the pump to inspect. Knowing nothing about well pumps, we figured this must be a very laborious and messy job, so OK'd the service. No less than 5 min later and the turn of 1 screw, they had the pump laying out in the front yard and we were $450 in the hole.
They easily identified the problem as a crack in the well pump which later just broke apart--when it was out of the well. They quoted $1700 for a new pump, and $300 more for a stainless steel pump. The $450 already committed was included in this total, so for a new stainless steel pump, we'd owe them $2000. Tentatively, we OK'd this service then made a few phone calls to validate the pricing.
I called
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
Plumbing Supply and asked for pricing on the 1/2 horse, 2-wire pump similar to the one they removed. I was quoted $469 for their best, all stainless steel pump (AY
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
). I then told C&J that I'd like them to stop with the installation of the new pump. At this point the installation guy got a little irritated, almost like I had gotten wise to their scheme. He said that it'd still be $450 for the total of $45 min. they were at the house already and that they DO NOT charge by the hour--rather they charge by the job and was adamant about their pricing. I commented that $2000 is a big investment for anyone and taking 10-15 min. to verify the pricing and decide what we do would be expected for anyone. After talking for a while, the service technician turned to be more sympathetic and friendly and seemed to know that their pricing was out of line and that he ultimately knew we were making a good decision.
Being somewhat of a do-it-yourselfer, I took over the project of replacing the pump myself. On a scale of 1-10 in difficulty and with installing a ceiling fan being about a 5-6 in difficulty, I would rate the replacement of the pump at about a 5, slightly less than the ceiling fan. Lowe's has many of the parts and fittings, the pump can be purchased at a good plumbing supply company and YouTube has several videos including how to do the electrical connections (crimped and shrink wrapped). I even put in an extra check valve right before the pitless adapter which wasn't on my previous installation.
I can understand the difficulty in drilling a new well, but once in place, today's wells are very
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
and straightforward. I would expect any decent plumbing company to charge about double the equipment cost for a replacement, which in my case would be around $1000. The $2000 which C&J quoted is completely out of line and in my view is exploiting unknown, uneducated people who are in a panic about being without water for a few hours. Call around, get another quote. Call
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
Supply and ask for a pump and a name of a contractor that can put it in if you can't do it yourself.
I paid $450 for about 15 min. of total work and a service call. When C&J comments on my experience that this is what the going rate for their service is, I should quit my law practice and start a well maintenance company!

First of all, I live in an area of Southern
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
that is famous for water problems (
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
Valley) so when water stopped flowing from my well a few days ago (approx 8/11/14), I didn't know if it was the well or the pump. I knew the pump was 14 years old and hoped for that!
Since I had had previous positive experiences with
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
at
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
, I called him immediately. His associate,
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
, was out here that day(!) to inspect and field a bevy of questions from two very worried (lady) senior citizens!
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
was amazing. He was not only neat and clean but was exceptionally patient and respectful. After careful inspection, he determined it was most likely the well pump and the well was producing very well. Good!
Since I have a holding tank, I had water delivered for house use while
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
arranged to have the pump pulled for closer inspection. This was done within a day or two but that was not the end of this story.
They did not just sell me a new pump right off the bat. They actually took the pump back to their shop and ran a very thorough inspection of it to determine what went wrong with it! Now this pump was OLD but I truly appreciated the effort in attempting to repair (if possible), rather than just selling me a new pump.
Alas, it was unrepairable....I was not surprised as it was 14 years old....and a new pump was installed the next day.
I cannot say enough positives about this company.
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
has been in the
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
Valley for years and years and
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
, the owner, has always provided only the best service and representatives. They get the job done and done efficiently and thoughtfully. They are personable and easy to work with. The cost was more than reasonable and, would you believe, I was given both a Senior AND a Veteran's discount?? That was $90 right off the top!!
Once again, I totally and sincerely recommend
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
for anyone in need of their services. In my opinion, the character and reliability of this company is unsurpassed and excellent! We are blessed to have them in our little community.
Good job!

Our water stopped running on a Sunday Afternoon. We have a well so we started flipping breakers, but it did not come back on. We tried to reach someone who would come out. We live in Vancouver and
Highland Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
were the only people who could come out that day. Before coming out,

was out within 2 hours (after finishing another job). He diagnosed the problem and fixed it and also identified some issues with our water heater that were not in the scope that they work. Overall we were very impressed and appreciative of the service we received.

, owner and tech, responded in less than 3 minutes to my voice mail message left Friday evening at 8pm. He asked if attention was needed immediately or if we could wait until Saturday morning, which we did. He called at 8:11am saying he was on his way and arrived shortly thereafter.

found the problem within 10 minutes and replaced the pressure switch. He also assessed the current well pump and recommended having it replaced because it is old and an inexpensive model; we moved into our home about a year ago.
