Top 3 Issues Well Pumps Experience, Davenport, Washington

Well pumps extract water from water wells, allowing homeowners to have a private water supply. These systems typically last between 8 and 10 years, but like most mechanical devices, they can experience problems that require repair at any moment. Here are some warning signs your well pump may be in need of a check-up.

3 Common Well Pump Red Flags

1. No Water 

If turning on the faucet in your bathroom or kitchen has no effect, first verify that your well switch is on. If your pressure switch keeps turning itself off, the problem could be with pump controller in your well pump.  Get a professional to inspect your pump to determine whether a replacement or repair is necessary.

3. Surging Pressurewell pump

When the water pressure of your faucets suddenly surges or diminishes, your pressure tank might be waterlogged. Your pump will frequently cycle on and off to try to regulate the pressure on its own, which can cause years-worth of wear in only a few weeks. If you notice pressure shifts in your water, have a professional inspect your pump.

2. Noises

If you hear frequent clicking noises when facets in your home are turned off, it’s a sign your well pump is running continuously. You could have a broken water line or a malfunction in the well pump itself, which results in water waste. Have a technician come inspect your plumbing to determine the source of the noise.
