McCoy Water Pump Services

McCoy Drilling installs complete systems. We use only high quality components – not the parts you can buy at your local “big box” discount retailer. The difference is that a pumping system installed by McCoy Drilling is dependable, fully guaranteed and installed by our installation and repair staff.

A submersible water pump is comprised of a series (usually 10) of small impellers, stacked horizontally on top of each other. When activated, the impellers rotate at approximately 3,450 RPM moving the well water up the drop line and into the pressure tank. Because the water pump operates electrically, wires must run down into the well and be connected to the pump. All wiring connections are permanently sealed to avoid voltage leaks and short circuits. A torque arrester and cable guards are installed above the pump to prevent wires from twisting and chafing during pump operation. The torque arrester extends the life of the pump by preventing voltage leaks and short circuits that would be caused if the wire coatings were compromised.M

Well & System Repair

Most systems installed in our trade are designed for a service life of a minimum 7 years, however we design for a 15-20 year life before maintenance is needed. While water quality can affect the length of service life, properly sized quality components installed properly can significantly increase service life.
