3 Signs It's Time to Replace Your Well Pump

How much do you really know about your well pump? You might think that it’s something that keeps running for decades without requiring any attention, but this isn’t the case. Well pumps fail, and when they do, you need to know how to identify the problem and have it addressed quickly in order to maintain access to clean water. Here are three signs that it may be time to consider replacing your well pump.

1) When your well pump keeps breaking

If your well pump keeps breaking down, there’s a chance that it needs replacing. One of the signs that it might be time for a new well pump is that water is not flowing out of your faucets at its usual speed. This could indicate anything from a faulty pressure gauge to clogs in pipes or other plumbing issues. Of course, if you notice increased water usage and decreased pressure at your faucets, then it’s definitely time for replacement. Additionally, if you see black or brown streaks coming out of your tap, it’s likely due to rust buildup on interior parts of your well system. This indicates that corrosion has begun inside—and soon enough, outside—of your piping and will lead to further breakdowns and malfunctions over time. You should have these problems fixed immediately before they cause more damage than necessary! Installing a new well pump can seem like an intimidating process, but with some research and preparation, it can actually be quite simple. The first step is to make sure that your current system is completely broken; otherwise, you may need to call in a professional plumber instead of doing it yourself. Once you know what kind of system you want installed (i.e., electric vs.

2) When you keep having to replace your water pressure tank

The cost of repairs could end up costing more than a replacement tank. If you are seeing signs that your well pump might not be as strong as it once was, take precautions now before you have to make emergency repairs again. Delaware is located in an area where water supply is abundant, but can still suffer from issues with water pressure and quality. A well-pump failure can result in a loss of water pressure which may result in difficulties for families who depend on their water for drinking and cooking purposes.

3) When the water comes out brown

If your water comes out brown or rust-colored, it’s likely an indication that a clog is occurring in your well system. A clog—which occurs from sediment, iron particles and other debris—can slow or halt water flow. Sometimes sediment collects around valves, pumps and plumbing connections causing a similar issue. If you see signs of rust coloring in your water, call for help from a Delaware well repair company as soon as possible. As we mentioned above, there are some situations where a replacement may be needed instead of repairs. The best way to know if you need new equipment is by knowing how long your current equipment has been running. Older equipment may not be able to effectively deliver water at the pressures needed by today’s homes and businesses.
