23 Sep 4 Signs That Your Well Pump is In Need of Repair or Replacement
Recognizing when your pump is experiencing problems is an important part of being a homeowner. After all, the earlier you recognize the problem, the earlier you can make the necessary repairs. Not only will this help to save money on the cost of the repair, but it will also be more convenient for you as your water pump works more efficiently and effectively as it is meant to work. As such, here are some of the things that you should watch for to tell you that it is time to have your well pump looked at.
Lack of Water Pressure
If your water pressure suddenly decreases from what it used to be, it is a sign that your well pump may be in need of repair. Low pressure can be a sign of a malfunctioning well pump, but it can also be a sign of clogged lines or even broken pipes.
Increased Electric Bill Costs
A malfunctioning well pump typically costs more to operate, which means you may see an increase in the cost of your electric bill. If you notice that your electric usage has suddenly gone up, it may be due to your pump.
Continuously Running Pump
If your pump is experiencing problems, you may notice that it is running more frequently than it used to or that it is running continuously. You will likely be able to actually hear the pump doing this extra work. Of course, this will also show up as extra expense on your electric bill, too.
As your pump struggles to do its job, you may hear loud or odd noises coming from your pump that you do not typically hear. This along with a general lack of water getting into your home is another good sign that your well pump is in need of repair or replacement.
