Signs You Need Well Pump Repairs

Many, many years ago, homeowners would have to use buckets and rope to collect water from the wells outside of their homes. Of course those days are long over, but when your well pump is not working properly or is not working at all, you may long for this simple solution. Fortunately, you can call a plumber in Bethesda at Tuckers Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing for quality well pump repair whenever there is no water coming into your home. Here are a few more signs that indicate the need for immediate well pump repair.

  • Low Water Pressure: Low or no water pressure could indicate trouble with the faucets or pipes in your home, but your well pump is also a probable culprit, particularly if the trouble persists in every area of the home. Municipal water supplies stay pressurized so that water can flow into homes with ease. While a well is a less expensive way to acquire water, it requires a working well pump to supply adequate pressure in order to reach the home. Low water pressure may mean there is a problem with the motor or an electrical issue.
  • Intermittent Water: You may only receive water in intermittent bursts, which can also indicate a problem with the motor. However, sometimes this simply means the components of your pump are worn down and replacement may be the best option. A plumber will make sure you get the correctly sized replacement for efficiency and longevity.
  • Noises: Finally, strange noises can indicate problems with the pump, even if you don’t notice much of a change with the water pressure. There are a number of possibilities for unusual noises, depending on the type of system you own, either a submersible pump or a jet pump. There may be a clogged nozzle or a hole in the pipe, among other issues. It’s best to call a technician to ensure you’re not at risk of losing water pressure entirely.

If you rely on well water, you can save a lot on utilities, but this requires maintenance and occasional repairs to keep it working as it should. Call Tuckers Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing when you decide it’s time to see a plumber in Bethesda for well pump repair.
