Did you know?
A submersible well pump can run for up to 15 years when properly maintained.
Above-ground jet pumps that are more commonly used with shallow wells have an average life span of 10 years.
Other common well pump issues can include:
Low Water Table – If you have experienced a drought or dry spell, there may be a lack of water in your well. The main signs of this would be sputtering or spitting of water from the tap, muddy and murky water or a noticeably off taste to your water. It could just be temporary, or your pump may need to be deeper underground to draw from the water table.
Inadequate Pump Size – A water pump should be sized for your home’s water use. The size of a pump is determined by the size of your plumbing system, like how many faucets there are and how many appliances use water.
Overworked Water Pump – Your pressure tank should also be sized to your home’s water use to take some of the work off the water pump. A pump that is called on to pump water just a few times a day will work significantly longer than a pump that cycles on and off several times a day.
Water Sediment –Dirt, hard water minerals, small stones or other debris can reduce water flow or cause the pump to stop working completely.
Depending on the chemical makeup of your water supply, the water in your well and well pump could be quite corrosive and could be harmful to all the components of your well water system. Be Protected With an Annual Water Well Inspection. A regular inspection from a professional is your time to ask questions, get insights, hear some first-hand knowledge and get the peace of mind of knowing you’ve taken steps to care for your home.
