When it comes to our home’s well water, we often don’t notice when something is amiss – until it’s too late. If you rely on well water for your home, it’s important to be aware of potential signs that you may need well pump repair. Knowing these signs and taking action quickly can help prevent costly repairs in the future. In this blog post, we’ll discuss 3 tell-tale signs that you may need well pump repair for your well water system.
1) Intermittent Cycling
If you’re experiencing your well pump switching on and off for no apparent reason, this could be a sign that something is wrong with the motor on the water pump. You may only be getting small amounts of water coming out of your taps, which is an indicator that the well water treatment or repair needs to be done. In this case, it could be due to worn-down parts that would need to be replaced or repaired, but it’s an easy fix when you stay ahead! Call our expert well pump technicians right away to solve the issue. We have provided quick, reliable service to Salyorsburg, the West End, Monroe County, and Carbon County for over 40 years.
2) Air Spitting from your Faucet
If you notice that your faucet is “spitting” out water, it could be a sign that your well pump isn’t functioning properly. The well pump may be pulling up air along with the well water, instead of just water. This could be caused by a crack in the piping that connects the well pump, allowing air to enter the system. Flaustick plumbing technicians are trained to identify the source of the problem and provide a solution for it. We don’t oversell or undersell, we simply make sure your well water system will last for years to come.
3) Low Water Pressure
One of the clearest signs that you need to repair your well pump is if you are experiencing low water pressure in your faucets, shower, or appliances. Typically, low water pressure in well pump systems can be caused by a drop in the water table. What’s the water table? It’s the level where underground water is found. This drop can happen for a lot of reasons, like if there’s a drought or if people are using a ton of water in the area, or if the well is being pumped too much. In really bad cases, the well can even run dry! So, it’s important to keep an eye on your well water system and fix any issues with low water pressure ASAP to avoid messing up your well and the system. If you have noticed that your water pressure has been slowly decreasing, it is likely time to call a professional to inspect and repair your well water treatment system. At Graydon Faulstick Plumbing, we specialize in this exact issue and the can help get your water pressure back to normal.
