5 Warning Signs You Need to Know About Your Well Pump

If you rely on a well pump to bring water into your home, you must know what problems may arise to keep everything running smoothly. Very often, well pumps will give off warning signs that something is wrong and must be fixed immediately. 

Whether you’re a seasoned well owner or new to the world of well systems, it’s essential to be aware of the signs that indicate potential well pump troubles. Water Dr. LLC will explore the common warning signals that can help you identify problems early on, allowing you to take swift action and keep your water flowing smoothly.

Unusual Noises

If your pump begins to make strange noises that it normally wouldn’t, like grating or grinding sounds, this is a sign of something serious that needs attention. It could be due to a faulty bearing or motor and should be checked out immediately by a qualified professional; ignoring this issue can lead to greater damage if not taken care of quickly.

Low Water Pressure

One of the most noticeable indicators of a well pump issue is a sudden or gradual drop in water pressure. If you notice weak water flow from your faucets, showers, or sprinklers, it could signify a problem with the pump.

Cloudy or Discolored Water

The presence of sediment, dirt, or unusual odors in your water supply may indicate problems with the well pump or the well itself. A malfunctioning pump can allow debris or contaminants to enter the water system.

Air Sputtering from Faucets

If you notice bursts of air coming from your faucets instead of a steady flow of water, it could be a sign of a failing well pump. Air entering the system can indicate a loss of pressure or a damaged well casing.

Long Pump Runtime

If your well pump runs for an extended period or seems to be constantly running, it may be working harder than necessary to maintain water pressure. This prolonged operation can lead to premature wear and tear.

I contacted WaterDR for a mitigation system for a high Radon reading after a home inspection. I spoke directly with one of the technician’s “Joe “ he was absolutely polite and informative.

Josh and the other technicians at Water Doctor are real experts and extremely knowledgeable. Even better, for the one obscure piece of equipment I had they had little experience with, they admitted they would have to check with someone else in the company before rending an opinion.

The guys from Water Dr. couldn’t have been any better to deal with over the years. We sold our house and they did our least service/tune up. Years of great service on our well. Fairly priced. Just nice guys to do business with. If my new house had a well they would be my guys.
