A well pump is an important part of your home. It’s what supplies water to your house, and it keeps you safe from contaminants that may be in the groundwater. It’s also a lot like a car engine: they both need regular maintenance to keep them running at their best. When was the last time you had your well pump serviced? You could be due for an appointment! So here’s how often it’s expected to get your well pump serviced.
In general, the typical lifespan of your well pump tends to be 10 to 15 years. That’s why it’s important to have your well pump serviced annually by a professional who will also check for any signs of wear and tear that could be leading to costly repairs down the road.
Common Factors That Dictate When You Are Due for a Service
Many factors go into deciding when to service your well pump. These include the age of the pump, the type of pump, and how often you use it. For example, if you live in a dry area with high temperatures or other conditions like long periods without rain, your well pump will need more frequent servicing than someone who lives in a place where these things happen less frequently.
Signs It’s Time for Repairs or a New Pump
Water pumps are mechanical, and as such, they require maintenance to keep them operating. And sometimes, they fail.
Here are several signs that your water pump is failing or has failed:
- Decrease in water pressure
- No water pressure
- Dirty water
- Strange noises
- Water spitting and sputtering from your faucets
