Prevent Well Repair Emergencies with Maintenance

  • Regular Inspections Are a Must. Inspect your well cover, pressure tank, pump, and pipes regularly. Look for rust, corrosion, or visible leaks. Damaged pipes can make your pump work harder. Not to mention, cracks in the system can introduce contaminants into your water supply.
  • Listen to Your Well. Yes, you read that right. Run the water and listen carefully. If your system doesn’t stop running or runs sporadically, you might be dealing with a larger issue. Problems with the pressure switch or air in the pressure tank make your pump work harder. So, if you hear anything unusual, it’s time to call in professionals for well repair.
  • Monitor Water Pressure and Quality. Keep an eye on the water pressure in your home. Irregular water pressure could indicate that your pump is wearing out.
  • Know Who to Contact for Emergencies. Always know who to call in case you need emergency well repair. A reliable service provider can make all the difference. Make sure they offer 24-hour emergency services.
