Three Reasons Well Pumps Go Bad

There are many things that can happen to well pumps but some of them are more common than others. Here are the three main reasons why well pumps go bad. If you notice that any of these happen to you then it might be time to call in a professional that is able to come out and lend a hand to get that well pump back up and working once again.


The Age of the Pump

This is generally the biggest and most common reason for a pump to not work anymore. Sometimes other mishaps can happen but generally when the pump is old, it is not going to be able to do the job it is meant to do. This means you must switch out the old pump with a new pump and make sure that the new one is a top quality one that continues to work.


Clogs in the Line

When the pump has a clog in the line, it is going to have a hard time filtering it out if it is large and hard to push through. This is going to cause a problem with the system since it is unable to push the sediment through the pipe and out the other side. Having a professional come out and drain then push your lines will clean them out and get the pump working again.


Loud, Odd Noises

The water in the home shouldn’t moan and groan, it shouldn’t spit water and air out through the faucets and it shouldn’t have low water pressure. These things together can mean that the pump is having issues that need to be addressed. This is something that a professional can come in and repair or replace the entire pump.
