Common Well Pump Problems
- Loss of power. We hate to see you waste money. So before you call to report a well pump problem, first check to see if it’s plugged in or if its circuit breaker has tripped and simply needs to be reset. The latter can and often is caused by a sudden power surge. With any luck, this is all it will take to re-activate your pump.
- Spitting & sputtering faucets. This is indicates drought-like conditions and a corresponding sharp drop in water supply. If the weather has been supremely dry for an extended period of time, your water might also look muddy or murky. One possible solution would be installing the pump deeper inside your well.
- The pump is too small. A properly sized well pump system will deliver 10 gallons per minute using a 1/2 horsepower motor. Larger homes may require larger pumps with greater horsepower. So if you’re not getting as much water as you need at the rate you need it, two things we always look at are pump size and location.
- Faulty pressure tank. If your pressure tank isn’t working properly, neither can your pump. Let’s say, for example, that the pump is trying to move too much water at once. That could cause the tank’s power switch to trip which, in turn, shuts down your pump. So if you’re not getting any water, look for the pressure switch on top of the feed line from the well pump to the tank. It’s a small silver bar and, if it’s parallel to the ground, it’s been tripped and needs to be turned back on.
