I've just had a well drilled and need a new pump system installed. How do I know which pump company to trust? 

Do your homework and check out each pump service business; it's important to trust the pump contractor.  As with hiring a well drilling contractor, ask what services and products are provided. Is their warranty and customer satisfaction program dependable?  Ask friends or neighbors who they suggest. Focus on the quality of products the contractor uses and what you're getting for the investment. Ask each pump contractor why they've selected the products they install.

Remember, the better quality of products, the less you have to worry about breakdowns and repair costs.  Bottom line is, do they provide you with products and customer service you can rely on? Ahearn Pump & Well Service would be happy to provide information about our line of products, warranties and the customer service we provide.

Will there be iron in my water?

We cannot guarantee the mineral content of the water. All we can do is pump the water out of the ground. From that point the water can be treated to remove unwanted minerals.

What guarantee do you give?

All materials are unconditionally guaranteed for one year. Some of the equipment that we install carries a longer guarantee from the manufacturer.

Why do you recommend a large pressure tank?

The larger the tank, the less frequently the pump will have to turn on and off. This eliminates excessive wear and tear on the pump and tank. Most pump manufacturers recommend a minimum run time of one minute for any pump up to 1 1/2 HP In the case of a pressure tank, bigger is better.

How long does a pump last?

When installing a new pump, investing in quality is the best insurance.  Some pumps are made of stainless steel and others are made of plastic. To get your money's worth, a good reliable brand of pump is the way to go.  Invest in a brand which will give years of trouble free service and peace of mind. Its not uncommon to have quality brand pumps last 10 to 25 years with out any trouble.  We've actually seen pumps last as much as 30 years. Several brands come with a 3-5 year warranty and a good stainless steel will provide many more years of service than the warranty covers.
