3 Important Signs Your Water Well Pump May Need Repair – Lake Mary

While a well water pump will often provide years of reliable operation to your Lake Mary home, we have to remember it is a machine and machines do need to be repaired every once in a while. So before the faucet runs dry, here are three signs that your well pump may need repair.

Low Water Pressure

When you turn on the water and notice that there is either a low volume of water coming out or the water volume isn’t increasing regardless of how far the faucet is open. This low water pressure is a sign that your well pump may need repairs. While it could be a plumbing issue, it is best to call a well repair technician who can check both the home and well to find and fix the low water pressure issue.

High Water Pressure

There are times when too much air can get into the lines forcing the water through the faucet at a higher volume than normal. With high water pressure you can see air bubbles forming when you fill a glass with water. Since this tends to be an intermittent issue, many homeowners ignore the problem until it starts occurring more frequently. However, this can amount to higher than normal electric bills and cause stress on the well tank and pump which can lead to more expensive repairs. Therefore, it is best to contact a well repair service tech who can check for leaks and make any necessary repairs.

Hearing noises when turning water on or off

You have been turning on and off your water for years without hearing a thing until suddenly you start to hear strange noises that sound like moans, rattling or creaking. It may be a little startling, but rest assured your Lake Mary home is not possessed; it is just the water pump trying to let you know it is not feeling well. Simply contact a well water pump repair specialist. They will be able to identify and repair any problem with the pump, whether it is an above ground pump or submersible pump, and all will be quiet again.
