Well Pump Repair
Is there anything more frustrating than opening up a tap to get a glass of water only to have nothing come out?
What can cause a well pump to stop working?
The main issues that cause a well pump to stop working suddenly are:
- Electrical failures at or supplying the pump
- A broken water delivery line leading to or from your well pump
- Your pump has lost its prime
- Complete failure caused by age and conditions your well exists in
How to prevent these issues.
Most of your well pump system is hidden below ground in supply lines or a submersible pump if your well is deep enough. You may also have a surface or jet pump that pulls water from a shallow well or lake. Little to no maintenance is required for a well pump unless you are turning it off and winterizing your system. In many cases you may begin to see signs of deterioration by a few factors. If part or all of your pumping system is located above ground it is a good idea to check your pump for signs of rusting or corrosion. This may indicate that the same problem is occurring on the internal parts of your system. It also indicates you may be entering the end of your pump's lifespan. If you begin to notice air in your water when you turn on a faucet there is a strong chance that you may have a break in your water delivery line to or from your pump. A final indicator is a spike in your electricity usage coupled with inconsistent pressure and the pump coming on more frequently than usual.
If your well pump is experiencing any of these signs or symptoms it’s a good idea to call Cardinal Plumbing & Electric to have a look. Catching a problem early enough may save you thousands of dollars by avoiding damage caused by water leaks or an emergency pump replacement.
