Use a Pump Repair Specialist, Not a Plumber or Electrician, for Your Water Pump Repair in Columbia, TN

August 30, 2018

When your water pump goes down, who are you going to call for water pump repair in Columbia, TN? Here’s a hint—not a plumber or an electrician. For many people, these are going to be the first contractors they call in to resolve the issue, and from a certain perspective, it makes sense—water pumps are sort of a combination of electrical and plumbing equipment.

However, there are several reasons why choosing a contractor who specializes in well pump repair specifically is a better option than working with a plumber or electrician. Here are just a few of those reasons.

Focused specialization

While plumbers and electricians are capable of dealing with certain types of water pumps and sump pumps, it certainly isn’t something they focus their entire job on. A water pump is just one of many pieces of equipment they’re trained to work with, and repairs are among the many types of repairs they offer to their clients. Plus, it’s probably a type of equipment they deal with relatively infrequently compared to other calls they commonly get.

A contractor who specializes in water pumps is going to have a much greater understanding of pump-related issues and give you the best chance of permanently resolving the problem, while being able to identify the underlying cause of the problem more efficiently.

Ability to solve complex issues

You might be able to find a plumber or electrician who’s capable of coming into your home and solving some relatively simple issues with your water well pump, but there’s a greater likelihood they will not be able to solve any significant issues or provide you with advice that will help you choose what would be the best new pump system for your home.

Potential savings

Let’s say you have an issue with the water pump and a plumber shows up to your house and discovers the issue extends beyond the well pump—and he or she can’t fix it. You’ll still end up having to pay the plumber for the visit, even if they couldn’t actually repair the problem. It’s more effective to choose someone who actually specializes in that kind of work so you don’t have to pay extra money to identify and resolve the problem as soon as possible.


A pump specialist will understand certain issues regarding your water pump that a plumber or electrician simply will not. A plumber might temporarily resolve the issue, for example, but the fix might be one that jeopardizes the long-term viability of your pump. The knowledge a pump specialist has will take into account both how you fix the issue and whether that fix is a good long-term solution.
