How Do Well Pumps Work?
Well water comes from groundwater or water that’s beneath the surface of the earth. This water comes from rainwater and other precipitation. This groundwater is stored in underground aquifers, and the water can move between aquifers as well. When a well is drilled or dug or driven into the ground, it needs to reach the aquifer so that water can be pumped out.
When a well is dug, it relies on the well pump to pull the water up to the surface. They use impellers to create a vacuum that forces the water upwards and into the distribution system. Generally, there are two types of pumps used: jet pumps and submersible pumps, and the type your home would need depends on the depth of the well and the amount of water needed in the household.
Signs your Well Pump Needs Repair
Well pumps are complicated devices that need proper maintenance and occasional repair or replacement. Some common signs that your well pump may need professional help can include:
- No or low water flow.
- Leak in piping system.
- Water pressure drops.
- Lost air in the water tank.
- Pump starting and stopping frequently.
