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

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
West Union 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
West Union 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
West Union 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
West Union Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
that is famous for water problems (
West Union 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
West Union Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
at
West Union Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
, I called him immediately. His associate,
West Union 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!
West Union 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
West Union 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.

West Union Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked

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
West Union Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
were the only people who could come out that day. Before coming out,
West Union Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
was very clear (in a polite way) that a higher rate would apply than if we waited another day. We had family arriving in 2 days for our daughter's wedding so we wanted it fixed right away.

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.

I sent a message through Angies List and they responded right away. They had someone come out and assess the crack. Along the way, we identified 3 other cracks. They gave me some great advice on holding off on repairing the crack, which was under an overhead sewer line in my basement until I had the sewer line checked out. Sure enough, I needed a repair, from another provider, to be performed on the sewer line and had I sealed the crack first, it would have complicated the process.
Overall, I was very happy with the management of the firm and especially the technical that came to my house on 4 different occasions. I really liked that they kept me with the same guy so I didn't have to bring a new guy up to speed with each visit.
I will absolutely use them again, but frankly I hope I never have to.

What started as a slow concern over the weekend, grew into an emergency in one night after heavy rains. An apparent leak in the water line from the well to the house caused the ground to swell and then overflow, flooding the backyard, patio, garage and under the slab out to the front of the house. The pump had been running all night and day. A friend recommended this local company. It was a late night call, 8pm, that
West Union Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
answered my call for help. They promptly came to my home the next morning at 8:30 am, as promised. I met
West Union Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
and his son,
West Union Water Pump Services Provider Name Locked
. They immediately surveyed the problem, knew right where to begin digging and within an hour, the pipe had been exposed, repaired, backfilled with dirt and I was back in business with water to the house and no more leaking. Professional, pleasant duo - father/son - they were such a big help on very short notice. I HIGHLY recommend and would use them again in the future. All things considered, the charge was extremely reasonable. don't hesitate to call this 5th generation company, if you need help with your well.

We live below the sewer main so have pumps to push all household wastewater uphill to the main. There are not many people who know how to work on these things, or who know both the plumbing and electrical.

. He came and inspected the system, made some recommendations and provided me an accurate estimate of the work. He worked on the install for two days, making sure that everything was done just right. He takes a lot of pride in his work, and is a true professional. We will definitely use him again in the future!
