Servicing Jet Pumps, Well Pumps & Sump Pumps North Houston TX
Sump pumps are great for flood prevention and for preserving the infrastructure of your home. The electric pump, found in the basement of a home, either pumps water to the outside of the home or into the drainage pipe system. A sump pit is a hole that collects water extracted from the inside of the house. As experienced plumbers in North Houston, we know that sump pumps can be useful in many of the cities and suburban areas we work in. Sump pumps are most frequently found in basements, where flooding or precipitation leakage comes through a house’s foundation. Flood prevention is extremely important. Water leakage or flooding in your home can be a very dirty and odorous, resulting in water damage and property damage – unwanted burdens that are very expensive to fix.

If you live in a city, the process of how your home gets its flow of water has probably never crossed your mind. It’s as easy as opening the tap at the sink. If you travel a few miles out of town, a lot can change. At Rooter-Man Plumbers, we know that well pumps can be used to supply water to remote locations, along with serving many other purposes to rural communities, including irrigating crops, providing water for livestock, and heating/cooling a geothermal system. The two most common types of well pumps are jet pumps and submersible well pumps.
Jet pumps can be used in wells of all depths. There are shallow well jet pumps which work great for wells in which no working parts are submerged in water and that are also less than 25 feet deep. For wells of greater depth and structure, deep well jet pumps have their injectors installed right into the well and are used for wells up to 75 feet deep.
Submersible Well Pumps
Submerged underwater in wells, these pumps use a small electric motor, an electric cable, and fitted piping. Upon activation of the pump, it uses its parts to push water up and out of the well. This type of deep water pump can be found hundreds of feet beneath the water in wells, and they are a great way to access water if the well level is low, even if there is little water in your well or during summer’s driest months.
Well pumps also can use various energy efficient sources which helps minimize your utility costs. Different kinds of pumps use sources including utility power, solar power, wind power, water power, and many more. Here at Rooter-Man Plumbers, our skilled professionals specialize in well pumps. Through our knowledge, we can determine which type of pump is right for your well. Not only that, but we can make sure that your well pump is energy efficient and will save you money in the long run.

Backflow Prevention and Certification Services
Rooter-Man Plumbers provides certified backflow testing, repair, and certification to the Northern Houston area. Backflow prevention systems stop the water in your sewer system from flowing back into the public water supply. Backflow prevention systems are vital in keeping water safe, which is why public health services are extremely concerned with these systems operating properly. Rooter-Man Plumbers’s prompt service and experience ensures that your system meets the backflow certification requirements and backflow codes set by these municipalities.
What is Backflow?
Backflow is the unwanted reversal in the flow of water from a real or possible source of contamination or pollution back into the public clean water supply.
Two Types of Backflow:
- Backpressure: Occurs when the user system is at a higher pressure than the supply water systems, allowing undesirable substances to be “pushed” back into the potable water system.
- Backsiphonage: Occurs when negative or reduced pressure exists in the supply piping, allowing undesirable substances to be drawn into the potable water supply.
How Can Backflow Be Avoided?
A couple of simple devices are available to ensure that water can only pass through a pipeline in the correct direction:
- Reduced Pressure Backflow Preventer: Used to protect water supplies from contamination by controlling the pressure and directing the water flow
- Non-Return Valve: When properly fitted, ensures that water flows through a pipe in the correct direction where pressure conditions may otherwise cause reversed flow
Why Do Backflow Preventers Have to Be Tested?
Mechanical backflow preventers, just like many plumbing systems, have an internal seal, springs, and many moving parts. Like any tool of this nature, inefficient usage, worn parts, and breaks are possible. Not only are these systems subject to damage, but they also can be bypassed. This is why it is necessary to insure they are functioning properly. Sometimes a visual check will do, but all mechanical backflow preventers have to be tested with specialized, properly calibrated equipment. Rooter-Man Plumbers has the backflow testing equipment and backflow prevention expertise to handle all of your backflow issues, including installation and maintenance of a backflow prevention system.
