5 Common Well Pump Repairs We Provide

If you don’t see the well pump service and repair that you’re in need of, you can simply give us a call to inquire. We’re happy to answer any questions you have about your water well pump.

Well Pump Repair #1: No Water

If no water is coming from your well pump, it might be a simple breaker issue. Simply reset the breaker to see if that fixes the problem.

If that’s not the culprit, there might be a broken pipe causing the water to run elsewhere.

If this is the case, you’ll want a professional to come to replace the pipes and ensure everything is connected properly.

Well Pump Repair #2: Dirty Water

Are you noticing any sand or grit being pumped through from your well?

This is an issue that, if left untreated, can cause the valves of the pump to deteriorate and also lead to sand in your water lines.

Portland Plumbers can take care of this issue for you so that the well pump can do its job properly while maintaining clean and safe water for your home.

Well Pump Repair #3: Noisy Operation

If you notice your well pump making more noise than usual, it’s possible one or more of the bearings is worn. 

A worn bearing might sound like a squeaking or clicking noise, which could mean it’s on the verge of breaking.

If the bearings are not the problem, it may be that debris has gotten into the pump and is hitting the impeller. This will require that the well pump gets flushed out completely to eliminate all of the debris buildup.

Well Pump Repair #4: Low Pressure

Low pump pressure can be caused by:

Try turning off the power to the pump for one hour. Then, turn it back on to see if the pressure rises back to normal.

If it does, you’re good to go. If it doesn’t, you may want a plumber to take a look at it for you. We can determine the problem and repair it in a timely manner.

Well Pump Repair #5: Air in the Plumbing Lines

There are a few ways that air can find its way into your well pump and water lines, including:

If you notice air spewing out of your faucet along with the water, one of our trusted plumbers can inspect your well pump and subsequent water lines to detect the problem.
