Where did my water go?
We are deep in the heat of summer and it's no time to be without water. Not having water simply isn't an option. However, getting fast well pump replacement service is! Your local Columbia CT plumber has some tips on what to do if your well pump isn't delivering water.
What type of well pump do I have?
There are two main types of well pumps found in Columbia CT: "Submersible" and "jet." You have a submersible well pump if your well is more than 25' deep and you don't have to prime it. You have a jet pump if your well is shallow and the pump is inside your house or in a well house. Knowing what type of system you have will help your plumber be better prepared to provide the best service.
What do I do?
There are a couple of things you can check yourself before you call a plumber. First, check your electrical panel. Reset any tripped breakers. If the breaker won't reset, it's time to call a pro. Second, check your toilets and faucets. Is the toilet running? Is the faucet dripping? Although it seems minor, it doesn't take much to run a well dry in the hot summer months. Turn the breaker off to the well pump and let it rest for 12 hours so it doesn't burn out. Be sure to fix any leaks. After you turn the pump back on and there's still no water, it's time to call your local plumber.
If a well pump was installed perfectly and you have great water conditions, you should get about 20 years out of it. How old is your pump? It may have failed due to old age or deteriorated due to poor water quality.
