Signs that a Well Pump Needs Repair

When any of the following signs are spotted, one of our techs should come out and take a look. Early diagnosis is key to mitigating the scope and cost of any plumbing issue, and a well pump is no different. 

  • Changes in water pressure: One of the earliest signs of a well pump going bad is changes in water pressure. This can indicate that a well pump is wearing out. 
  • Odd noises from the pump: When the pump is grinding, screeching, or making other unusual noises, it means that it's working harder than it should and may require repair or replacement.
  • Pressure tank sounds: If there are rattling, banging, or knocking sounds coming from the pressure tank, this is a sign that there's a problem with the well pump or the pressure tank itself. If you notice any of these sounds, then it is crucial to contact our Durham well pump service techs.
  • Water spitting from faucets: When the well pump is going bad, there may be water spitting from the faucets when water is first turned on. 
  • Constantly running pump: If the well pump runs continuously, it could mean that it's working harder than it should. Continuous running can cause unnecessary wear and tear on the pump and delay in repair could result in needing more expensive work, or even replacement, down the line. 
  • Higher utility bills: A failing well pump operates less efficiently than a properly functioning one, and therefore runs for longer periods. The result is higher energy costs.
  • Sediment in the water: If there is cloudy or dirty-looking water coming from the faucets, or if it smells bad, then it could be a sign that the well pump needs to be serviced or replaced.
  • Lack of water entirely: Suffice it to say, if the water has dried up, there’s a plumbing problem of some kind, and the well pump may well be the culprit. 

Should a Well Pump Be Repaired or Replaced? 

As a well pump ages, the property owner will likely experience more issues and increased costs. . On average, a well pump has a lifespan of 15-25 years, after which the cost of replacement may outweigh repair expenses. Our Durham well pump service pros will provide homeowners with an assessment they can trust and work they can rely on.
