Does My Well Pump Need to Be Repaired or Replaced?
If you live in a densely populated city or suburb, you probably don’t think much about where your water comes from. However, for those living in rural areas, a private well system is likely the source of your water needs. It’s equipped with a well pump that delivers water to the house. When your well pump goes bad, it will affect your home’s water supply. Be on the lookout for these telltale signs that your well pump needs to be repaired or replaced.
Low Water Pressure
If suddenly you realize that your water pressure is lower than it normally should be, it could be a sign that there’s something wrong with your well pump. The entire pump system is based on water pressure. Have a plumber in MD come take a look at your well pump before the problem turns into a catastrophe.
“Spitting” Water Faucets
If you turn on a faucet and notice that it’s not consistently flowing or bubbles are coming through the pipes, it likely means that there’s a crack in the pipe connecting the well pump to your home. It could also mean that your water table has dropped below the pump. A well repair specialist will be able to identify the exact problem.
You Have No Water at All
There could be several possibilities for why your home is not receiving water. Things like the circuit breaker or the pressure switch could have shut off. If your circuit breaker or pressure switch trips frequently, have a plumber inspect it. They may suggest replacing the well pump since it’s likely too old or no longer capable of lifting water.
Egg-like smells coming from your fixtures are not normal. If you’ve noticed egg smells coming from your fixtures, something may be wrong with your pump. Usually, the smell is from sediment that is getting pulled from the well along with the water. Have a well repair specialist evaluate the situation and either repair or replace your well pump.
Rising Utility Bills
Have you noticed an increase in your utility bills? Your well pump may be to blame. As your well pump ages ー or as it gets damaged ー its efficiency may decrease and therefore increase your utility bills. If you want to save money in the long run, have your well pump replaced by your trusted plumber.
