If you are having trouble with your water system it may be a sign your well pump needs to be replaced, but how to know if that’s the reason or if the problem relies on any other failure?
Here are 4 signs that you might need a new well pump:
1. No water
Turning your water faucets on and finding that no water is coming out of them is a clear sign that you need to replace your well pump. This sign suggests that the submersible well pump is not working, and due to that, the pump can’t take water out of the well. But before you go and buy a new well pump, check all areas of your property for broken pipes or clogged lines as these failures in your plumbing can also be the cause of having no water.
2. Loud noises
Another sign that your well pump is failing is the appearance of loud noises. When a submersible pump doesn’t stop running it means it’s struggling to pump water from the well to the surface and this can produce loud or odd noises.
3. High electric bills
Unusually high electric bills are a consequence of the constant running of the well pump. If you are paying higher electric bills than what you usually pay and notice any of the previous signs, we recommend you to check if your well pump is running properly.
4. Low pressure
Another sign that your well pump is failing is if you turn on a faucet and there’s some water coming out but not enough. Having poor water pressure can mean your pump is not running properly, but as we said earlier, before replacing your well pump, check for other problems in your plumbing system that can cause the same problem.
