Call us when you need pump repairs and installation in Yelm
A faulty well pump is often a major concern and something that you’ll want looked at immediately. Typically, well pumps last for decades–but when was the last time you replaced yours? If you can’t remember ever putting in a well pump, it may have simply outlived its viable lifetime.
However, at John’s Plumbing & Pumps, Inc, our plumbers will make sure that a simple repair won’t do the trick first. Our team does any kind of well pump repairs and installation in Yelm, and our knowledge and experience mean you won’t be getting a temporary fix with a symptom that will reappear the moment we leave.
How do I know if I need a well pump replacement?
Even if it’s been dozens of years since you put in a well pump, that doesn’t mean that you have to replace it if it’s in good condition. Conversely, even newly-installed pumps can go bad. Keep an eye out for a few signs that show it may be time for a replacement well pump soon.
- Water pressure problems. Low pressure and water sputtering often means that your pressure switch isn’t working like it should. We’ll check that and see if it’s the pressure switch or a problem with the pump itself that’s the cause for concern.
- Worn down components. Many parts of the well pump can be replaced and you won’t have an issue. However, if you have an older pump, tracking down the right piece may be more trouble than it’s worth, and it could be more cost effective to get a newer, more efficient pump installed.
- Discolored water. Usually, the minerals in your water are invisible and actually offer some health benefits, depending on what minerals are naturally occurring. But too many of these elements can be bad, especially if the water starts changing color, and it could be a sign that your well pump won’t last much longer.
