People have been using wells as a source of drinking water for thousands of years. In the past, the process of moving water from the well to the surface was highly labor intensive, as the water had to be hauled up or pumped by hand. Today, though, wells use motorized pumps to automate that process and make it easy to get well water into your home or building.
However, even modern water pumps can break down, so our team at Yadkin Well Company offers expert water pump repair services. In this article, we’ll go over a few ways to tell if you need water pump repair—if you notice any of the following issues affecting your water supply, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
- Dirty Water – If the water from your taps starts to become cloudy instead of clear, then there is definitely something wrong with your well system. In particular, if there is visible sediment in your water, then there is most likely something wrong with your pump. We encourage you to call us right away to have our experts check out your pump in this scenario, as leaving the issue unaddressed will just make the problem worse in the long run.
- Spitting Faucets – Another sign you need water pump repair services is air getting into your pipes. This issue usually manifests as a spitting or sputtering sound when you turn your taps on, along with a delay in water flow. If it takes a second for the water to start, we encourage you to reach out to us to have our experts check your pump.
- Increased Energy Bills – A third sign that you may need water pump repair services can be found in your energy bills. If your energy costs have gone up for no apparent reason, it could be that your water pump is having to work harder to do its job. Your pump running constantly will use more energy, driving your bills up. Our team can repair your pump to ensure it remains as efficient as possible.
