Making A Difference

After struggling for years to find a way to give back to my community, I started thinking about the incredible number of people who worked in the industrial field. I knew that a lot of people had trouble staying safe while they were at work, so I began talking with different people to see how they thought the industry could change. It was incredible to gather up all of the information and share it with the companies that could really make a difference, and now I honestly feel like I have made some big changes. Check out this blog for great information on making a difference in the industrial field.

Signs Your Well Pump Should Be Inspected And Repaired

Your well pump should last for several years. Well pumps are rugged and made to work for long periods of time in tough conditions. However, the pumps eventually wear out due to age and exposure to sediment. At some point, you'll have to replace the pump, but it might also be possible to keep the pump going by having repairs. Here are some signs to look for that indicate your well pump might need to have repairs.

Signs Your Well Pump Needs To Be Serviced

If the water stops flowing in your house, then you know for sure there's a problem with your well somewhere, although it might be something other than the pump. However, well pump trouble isn't always that obvious. Instead of a complete loss of water, you may notice that the pump runs all the time and you may be alerted to this problem when your electric bill is high. The water pressure from your faucets might keep getting weaker over time. Bursts of air might come out of the faucets along with the water or you may hear unusual noises from the well or plumbing system. If your water has a lot of sediment and looks dirty, that could mean the pump needs to be inspected since sediment can cause damage if it gets in the pump.

Ruling Out Other Causes Of Water Problems

The well pump is just one part of your plumbing system, so the repair service will have to narrow down the exact cause of your water problem. Since a pump works on electricity, if there's a power problem, then the pump won't be able to get water to your house. As soon as the water from the holding tank is used up, your water runs out. A low pressure problem could even be due to a leaking water pipe that leads from the pump to your house. If a pipe is leaking water, you might have a soggy yard or grass that's greener in one location. There could even be problems with the pressure tank or switch. It's also possible low water pressure could be due to a drop in the water table.

A well pump has several parts that control its operation. Some are underground and others are above ground. Repairs might be simple or complex depending on the reason for the pump's malfunction. Since the pump itself is under the ground, the only way to know if it needs repairs is to have it pulled up and inspected. Then, the service technician can decide if repairs will solve your problem or if your well needs a new pump.
