The costs of replacing a jet pump are based on the type of pump, its depth, its location and the size of your well. For example, replacing a shallow well jet pump is usually less expensive than replacing a deep well jet pump. Replacing a malfunctioning pump is important, especially if your well is your primary source of water.
Most well pumps retail for between $100 and $1,200. The average cost to replace a well pump is between $844 and $2,257, with most homeowners spending about $1,535. Shallow pumps will cost around $1,000 to install,
Jet pumps come in cast iron, stainless steel, carbon ceramic and thermoplastic. Most jet pump motors range from between one-half and two horsepower. You can expect to pay around $269 for shallow well pumps (25-feet or less) with smaller motors and cheaper materials like thermoplastic. Deep-well motors (up to 150 feet) with higher quality materials like cast iron will have a rough cost of between $675 – $745. Jet pumps are generally considered an older style of well pump, and deliver less volume and pressure compared to submersible pumps. Sometimes jet pumps stop working due to a loss of prime, while submersible pumps are always self-priming. Motor replacement costs will vary based on the size of your pump. In many cases, motor repairs cost as much as installing a new pump.
