Signs You Need Well Pump Repair

Unfortunately, it’s often difficult to tell if your well pump is going bad, but some of the tell-tale signs include:

  • Fluctuating water pressure
  • Faucets spitting water
  • Constantly running well pump

It can be hard to tell the difference between a faulty well pump and issues with your pressure tank. Our expert plumbers can come out to inspect and diagnose any problems.

Common Causes Of Well Pump Failure

The most common issues that you will encounter with your well pump are:

  • Equipment failures
  • Groundwater problems
  • Well pump wear and tear

Preventative Well Pump Inspections

It’s a good idea to have your well pump inspected yearly — this can prevent issues from arising at inconvenient times! We can perform a full well system check, including an inspection of the pressure switch, pump, and motor to make sure everything is functioning properly.

Faulty Well Pump Diagnosis & Repair

Our expert team will diagnose your issue by performing a well pump inspection. We will discuss the issue with you and attempt to determine exactly what aspect of your pump may be failing.

We’ll first check to make sure it’s not an issue with your breakers or a similar issue that is easily resolved. Then, determine where the issue is coming from — whether it’s the pump, pressure switch, bladder, or some other aspect of your pumping system.

Once we’ve diagnosed the issue, our technicians will help you decide on the best course of action. If your pump needs to be replaced, we can advise you on the best system for your needs. We will never sell you anything you don’t need.

Repair timeline

Typically, our repairs can be completed on the same day. If, however, we need to order parts or replace the well, this may cause the repair time to be extended.
