Jet well pumps are typically placed outside the well in the well housing or they can be hooked up in your basement. Jet pumps are often used in shallow wells. These pumps are found mostly in older homes and we work on them often, but submersible well pumps are much more efficient for new installations.

Jet Pump Well Pump Replacement
Jet pumps were very popular in the 1950’s through the early 1970’s. If you can hear a motor running in the basement when you draw water from your faucets, you most likely have a jet pump. These pumps are above grade, easily visible, and are usually in close proximity to your water storage tank. In comparison, a submersible well pump is suspended deep in the well that is generally located outside of the home.
Jet pump systems are work-horse systems and are very dependable, but when a service issue arises, it can be very difficult to find a company that can correctly diagnose and/or service these units. While it is true that submersible pump systems are much more efficient in water delivery as compared to jet pumps, jet pump systems are very dependable, and can serve a smaller home adequately for many years if maintained and properly serviced or repaired when necessary.
