Broken Well Water Line

One of our Colchester CT customers called us in distress. He’d been noticing water puddles in his finished basement but couldn’t figure out what was causing it. Once our technician arrived at the residence to perform some troubleshooting, the cause became clear. The water line to the well was broken somewhere.

We dug and excavated from the well to the front of the home, in order to make the repair. Once we had access to the well water line, we were able to isolate the problem.

We replaced the water line from the well to the well tank inside the home. The installation of a new well tank was also part of the job. We ran all the electrical from the well head to the inside of the home as well. A sanitary well cap was also installed.

The customer also had a drippy outside faucet. Since we were already there, he decided to get one more thing off his to-do list. We replaced it with a frost-free spigot. This type of faucet will help prevent a burst pipe in the wintertime. Once the plumbing repairs on the well were finished, the trench was filled in and landscaped. All the debris was cleaned up and taken away for disposal. One of the things we pride ourselves in, is leaving our work spaces as clean as when we arrived!
