How Your Well Works & Common Signs Of Well Pump Failure
Most homes in northern Wisconsin, areas like Minocqua – Eagle River – Rhinelander, have water delivered to their home through a well system. Your well system is independent from neighboring houses, and installed deep in the ground where adequate water supply can be found – a well installer will determine if a shallow or deep well is the best solution for your property and water needs.
The well pump is the most vital part of your well system; pumping water from the well into a storage tank, and then through the pipes of your house when you need it. Your well will either utilize a jet pump or submersible pump depending on the depth of your well. As you can imagine, like any other high performance part of home’s operating systems, your well pump will need maintenance, repair, and eventually replacement.
Some common signs that there’s a problem with your well pump include:
- No water – if nothing comes out of your faucet when you turn it on, your pump is likely the source of the problem.
- Poor water pressure –unusually low water pressure when showering or washing dishes may be a sign that your pump is on the verge of a breakdown.
- Constantly running well pump – your well pump is not supposed to run constantly, if you notice it doing just that or repeatedly starting and stopping even when you’re not using water, your pump will soon fail if the problem is not fixed.
