How Well Pumps Work

The well pump is accountable for pushing water from the well to a storage tank, where the water stays until you need it. Once you turn on a faucet or appliance, the water will flow from the tank, giving you water faster than if the water came directly from the well. Once the air pressure in the tank reaches a certain level, the pump will be activated, and it will turn on again, pulling water from the well until the tank comes to 40 to 60 psi once again. The well pump is an essential component of your plumbing system, and if something were to go wrong, you would see a decrease in the system’s efficiency. You should get in touch with experts for residential well pump installations or repairs when this happens.

4 Signs You Need Well Pump Repair or Replacement

Rising Utility Bills

If you’ve noticed a spike in your monthly utility bill, it could be due to issues with your pump system. As your well pump ages — or if it’s in need of repairs — its efficiency may decrease, driving up your utility bills.

Lower Water Pressure

The entire pump system is based on water pressure. If you notice the water pressure in your sink or shower is lacking lately, there may be an issue with the well pump.

‘Spitting’ Faucet

This issue is usually indicative of a problem with your pressure tank rather than the well pump itself. If your pressure tank is leaking, air can get into the water line and cause air bubbles to come out of the faucet.

Clicking Sounds

Another sign of a faulty pressure tank is a noisy system. If you can hear clicking sounds coming from the pressure switch near the tank, call Five Star.

Well Pump FAQ

What factors determine the cost of a new well?

The largest factor in determining the cost of a new well is the well depth. This can be tricky, because we will not know the actual well depth of a new well until we drill it. We rely on information on other wells in the area to estimate the depth of a new well.

What should I do to maintain my well?

Newer wells have been fairly maintenance-free for many years. If you start to notice issues with your well (the pump running a lot, your breaker frequently tripping, a change in the quality of the water, etc.), we recommend you have your well looked at. We offer complete well inspections, and we recommend this to be done at least every 5 years. Regular well inspections are encouraged as it allows us to fix small issues before they become big problems and cost you money.

When does a well need to be abandoned?

Wells that are no longer being used (due to a replacement well or a conversion to city water) must be properly abandoned. Open and unused / unprotected wells can act as a gateway for contaminants to reach groundwater, and potentially contaminate other wells. Give us a call if you need help!
