4 Well Pump Service FAQs Answered

Why Is the Water Pressure Low?

When the water pressure declines in your home, it’s often the result of a material, such as sand or dirt, clogging the lines and preventing the water from flowing freely. There is also a chance that your well is drying up or the pump has gone bad and can’t send water through to your home.

What Causes Cloudy Water?

Why Doesn’t the Pump Stop Running?

Your pump shouldn’t run for hours on end. A continuous flow will cause the pump to burn out and leave you with no water. 

What Caused the Water to Stop?

When the water stops flowing into your home, that can be a major problem. Remember, the pump can’t pull water into your home if the power is out. When your power is on and no water is coming inside, that often means something is wrong with the pump or the well itself.
