Bedford County Well Pump Replacement Services


Well Pump Replacement

Cardinal Mechanical Services is the trusted well pump replacement contractor in Bedford County, Virginia. For over 25 years, homeowners have turned to our well services experts for high-quality, professional service they can trust each and every time.

Generally speaking, well pumps go unnoticed until they fail. Like a broken leg, we often don’t appreciate how much our they’re used until they break. Unfortunately, your homes water well only works if you’ve got a fully functioning well.

Well Pump Replacement Costs


Pricing on a new pump varies depending on the type of well system you have. The costs to repair an older well pump can quickly outrun the actual price and installation costs to buy a brand new pump. In general, well pump replacement costs $1,000 or more. Older technology involves the use of a jet pump, which is housed above ground making it easier to access.

With submersible pumps, we’ll have to first remove the pump from your well water system using a safety rope. Once we’ve inspected the pump, we’ll be able to more accurately determine replacement or repair pricing.

If you’re considering replacing your well pump system, talk to the professionals first. There are many components of a pump and trying a DIY on something as important as your pump generally isn’t recommended.

How Long Do Well Pumps Last?


While there are certain factors that can increase or decrease the longevity of your homes well pump, generally speaking, most well pumps last between 8-15 years. There are certain things, such as the amount of sediment in the soil, that can shorten the life cycle of your wells pump early.

As many homeowners who live in the Bedford / Forest / Montvale area know, we live in an area with heavy sediment. With heavy sediment in the western part of the county, homeowners in areas that are not in the higher, flattened areas of the county may find themselves needing a full well pump replacement sooner than they imagined.

Despite the fact that different soil types can increase or decrease the amount of sediment in your water and in turn, how long your well pump lasts, it’s more likely that your well pump will wear out first from everyday use over the course of a decade or more.

Other factors that may affect your well pump include the overall quality of the pump and the size of the well pump motor.

8 Signs Your Well Pump Needs Replacing


A water well pump, like many other household appliances, is out of sight out of mind until they stop working properly. Depending on the problem at hand, you may need to have your well pump replaced and a new one installed. Here are a few signs you may need well pump replacement or servicing:

  • Decreased water pressure
  • No water at all
  • Dirty water
  • Abnormal noises or loud sounds
  • Pulsing water
  • Air “spitting” from the faucet
  • Pump continuously running
  • Unusually high water bills

Customer Feedback

  • Went beyond my expectations!

    Keith came out and was very helpful in getting my well pump going again and went beyond my expectations I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of help! To bad you can't give 10 STARS

    Jeffrey B
  • Courteous, Efficient, and Knowledgeable

    "I can not even begin to find the words that describe the job Cardinal Mechanical Services did for us. We ran out of water on a Thursday evening and my husband did everything he could to try to fix it. It didn’t work. We called Keith with Cardinal Mechanical and he was at our home in no time. He immediately got to work checking what the problem could be. Once he knew what was wrong he immediately did what was needed to get it fixed. He has a helper that was right beside him helping him with everything. They were both courteous, efficient, knowledgeable, and did everything to make sure we had water that same day. I’m so thankful and wouldn’t use anyone else. I highly recommend this company. Thank you again Keith. I’m so appreciative."

    Cathy M.
  • Highly Recommended

    "The night before Keith came out, our we lost water pressure in the house. Sent Keith an email to let him know in case he could possibly bring tools to fix that as well and he immediately called back to get more information. Turned out the well pump connection failed, which caused him to pull the pump (300') out completely and repair the connection. He had additional help out immediately and also put in a new 2.5 ton heat pump and air handler. Before he left, he made sure we completely understood the new system and thoroughly cleaned all works areas. Could not be happier with Cardinal's service and professionalism. Highly recommended and is the only one I plan on using in the future."

  • Excellent Work

    "Two days before Thanksgiving and I suddenly had no water! Thanks to Keith and his team, repair was made quickly and i had running water the next day. Everyone was safety-conscious and courteous, and very knowledgeable and professional. Also they took the time to keep me informed of what they were finding and how it was being repaired. Excellent work!"

    Karen B.
  • Very Professional

    "Contacted Cardinal Mechanical at 9am they had my water restored by lunch time. The owner was very professional and upfront with what it would cost. I highly recommend for all plumbing and HVAC work that you may need done."

    Chris H.
  • Very Responsive

    "Very responsive and dedicated to customers. My father in law had an issue with his outdoor unit on Thanksgiving day, owner was contacted around noon and showed up well within a timely manner. I would highly recommend this company for HVAC and plumbing services."

    Kelsey D.
  • We Could Not Be Happier

    "Having been in our home for 10 weeks now we originally asked Keith to look at our well casing thinking a crack might be the cause of reddish brown water after a heavy rain. When he arrived, before looking at the pump he checked the water from the house. It turned out the water heater was at it's end. Along with the water heater he did a thorough inspection of the pressure tank, plumbing and the well too. He takes his time and informs you with everything he sees..Today he installed our new water heater. His prices were very fair and we could not be happier. He will be our plumber of choice in the future."
