Well System Repairs & Installations for Columbia & the Surrounding Areas
Maybe you’re an experienced well owner, or maybe this is your first year using well water. Either way, you know how important it is to have your maintenance handled by trustworthy and reliable plumbers. Kay Plumbing has you covered.
Don’t Let Your Water Supply Fail You without Warning
Using well water services in place of municipal water means you have to be diligent about its upkeep because the city won’t handle it for you. Make sure your well is in good condition. Kay Plumbing knows the local landscape and we’re always up front about what we’re doing and why.
Keep Your Water Supply Running Well
Water Pump Installation & Repair Services
The right water pump is crucial for getting the water pressure you need and want. At Kay Plumbing, we know what we’re talking about with well plumbing, and we listen to our customers’ needs before we give recommendations. If you need a well pump repair, we can come out any day of the week at any time of the day so you’re not left with poor quality or no water for any longer than necessary.
Water Well Service Inspections
Choosing the right location for your well is critical to meeting your water needs. Kay Plumbing is familiar with the geography of South Carolina, so we can help you make an informed decision about where you decide to drill your well. We can help you maintain it by inspecting it regularly, too.
Water Treatment Options
The Midlands sit on mineral deposits, meaning you probably have hard water. This water can leave stains on your belongings and wear out appliances because it has high levels of calcium and magnesium. And due to where water is sourced, South Carolina can’t always keep the water pollutant-free. Kay Plumbing can install filters and purifiers to your well.
Watch Your Water Spring Up Nicely
A maintained well can provide you fresh groundwater for years or decades to come. Even with excellent caretaking, parts won’t last forever. Have professionals inspect your well on a regular basis to make sure nothing takes you by surprise. Kay Plumbing will listen to what you want, evaluate the type of land your well is located on, and give you advice based on your needs, not based on upselling you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I fix a broken or leaky well or water pump myself?
This depends on how accessible the issue is and how handy you are. If it’s not easily accessible, requires special equipment to reach, or you don’t have very much plumbing experience, then it’s probably best to call a professional.
How do I keep my well from freezing when it’s very cold?
Insulating your pipes in some way, especially if they’re made of PVC, is the best way to prevent water from freezing up. Your well is most likely deep enough to have no problems with cold weather, but the plumbing that transports well water is, of course, going to be closer to the surface. One option is an insulating foam, which can protect your piping from extreme cold or heat. You’ll want to wrap it in aluminum tape to protect it from ultraviolet light and rodents. Also, make sure to check on your pipes every so often just to make sure they’re still in good condition.
How do I know if I need to have a plumber look at my well?
If you’re having spurting water, no water, or low water pressure when you run a faucet, there’s definitely an issue that needs to be checked out. It could be as simple as your water level dipping below the pump’s level from overuse or a breaker flipping, but it could be as serious as a leak or broken pump.
Is well water safe to drink?
Generally, yes. However, with our location in the Southeast, groundwater is more likely to come into your well system at a warmer temperature than some place further north that is cold for a portion of the year. That means things like bacteria have a better chance of growing in your water, and you should invest in a water treatment system to help keep clean water coming from your pump.
How do I know if my well water is contaminated?
Knowing what contaminants might be nearby – for example, pesticides – can give you an idea of what could be in your water, but the only way to know for sure is to have it tested regularly to be sure nothing especially harmful is in it. One way to prevent contamination is to be sure your well cap is either on level ground or uphill so nothing can collect on top of it. Having a water treatment system can also boost your confidence in water safety.
Should I be having my well water tested?
You should test your water at least once a year and any time something about the water, like the color or taste, changes suddenly, even if you’ve already tested it that year (and use bottled or filtered water until you get the lab results back!).
