Is Your Well Pump in Trouble?

Well pumps are used to extract water from your well water source. Most of these are entirely submerged in the water which they are pumping, making it important to have them inspected on a regular basis to prevent problems. Should there be any issues, a well pump repair service in Maryland can take care of things for you. Well pumps aren’t meant to last forever, but they are meant to work for you. Here are some of the signs to know if your well pump might be in trouble.

No Water Flow

While no water flow might not be the fault of a broken well pump, it typically does mean something in your well system is broken. Water flow can be stopped by equipment failure, a plumbing breakdown, or even well failure. These issues may arise from both problems with the equipment or with the well. The best thing to do is to have a well pump repair plumber asses the situation to see where the exact damage lies and how reversible it is.

Old Age

Most water well pumps are designed to last about a decade. However, systems can work in excellent condition for longer if they’ve been properly maintained. But if your system has reached this threshold and isn’t working as well as it once was, that’s an important sign to call a plumber and listen to their recommendation to determine if you should repair or replace your well pump.

Other Factors

Perfectly good water flow and a young pump don’t necessarily mean that your well pump will live on untouched by trouble. Unfortunately, there are a number of tank lifetime shortening factors that can negatively impact your entire system, including your well pump. From corrosion to the chemical makeup of your water, or even neglect from a previous owner, there are some symptoms of a troubled well pump that could be out of your control.
