When it comes to home maintenance, it’s easy to forget to include your water well. However, knowing what to look for when it comes to concerns can help you find problems before they become nightmares. Your water well is a complex system with many parts that could be at fault of a variety of issues. We want to help you prolong the life of your water well. Look out for these top signs there may be trouble:
1. Increase in Energy Consumption
A bump up in energy consumption of your home could mean there is a setback with your water well pump. Clogged or worn out pumps generally work harder than they should, requiring more energy. Your pump could practically run all day, every day due to equipment failure and the increase in cost of energy will be noticeable.
2. Air in Your Water
A variety of complications may cause air bubbles to be coming from your faucet with your water. Connecting your well to the pump is a pipe that may be broken. Your well water being too low is another possibility.
3. Peculiar Taste and Smell
If something tastes or smells off about your water, chances are something is wrong. Corrosion and contamination of your water is a serious problem and are likely the causes of these issues. You may even feel or see small grains of sediment in your water.
4. Peculiar Sounds
Your pipes within the home and the water pump outside should not produce noises like grinding or groaning. Something may have gone awry with the pump motor or the pump itself.
5. Low Water Pressure
Like most of the predicaments listed, low water pressure can be from different factors. From something miniscule to serious, the reason could be a stuck valve or a faulty pump.
