He is a member and past President of the Virginia Water Well Association and a member of the National Drilling Association.

Expert Pump Sales, Installation and Service

At Gildersleeve we have been installing, servicing and repairing pumps for over 70 years. We work on all makes and models and can get you up and running fast.  There are four types of pumps commonly used in the residential setting. The most common are the Deep well and the Submersible.

Shallow Well Jet Pumps

Shallow well jet pumps are a type of water pump commonly used in residences where there is no access to a city water supply. They are the first part of the well-water purification system, pulling the water up from the ground. They are the simplest and cheapest form of well pump on the market and their only drawback is that they cannot draw water from more than 25 feet below ground level.

Deep Well Jet Pumps

Deep Well Jet Pumps or “packer type systems” are typically used in areas of higher elevation above the water table where shallow well pumps are no longer adequate. These installations are less expensive than submersible pumps but are less efficient and more costly to operate and maintain. We also offer yearly mainteinance contracts for domestic  drinking water systems and yard well pumps.

Submersible Pumps

A submersible pump (or sub pump, electric submersible pump (ESP)) is a device which has a hermetically sealed motor close-coupled to the pump body. The whole assembly is submerged in the fluid to be pumped. The main advantage of this type of pump is that it prevents pump cavitation, a problem associated with a high elevation difference between pump and the fluid surface. Submersible pumps push fluid to the surface as opposed to jet pumps having to pull fluids. Submersibles are more efficient than jet pumps.

Centrifugal Pumps

Centrifugal pumps are a sub-class of dynamic axisymmetric work-absorbing turbomachinery. Centrifugal pumps are used to transport fluids by the conversion of rotational kinetic energy to the hydrodynamic energy of the fluid flow. The rotational energy typically comes from an engine or electric motor. This is typically used on farm and other agricultural settings.

The Myth About
Freon Replacement

Some say that A/C systems require more freon every few years, but that’s simply not true. Missing refrigerant signals a leak in your system that should always be professionally located & repaired before recharging occurs.
