If you own any type of private water well, then you know it needs regular service to continue operating at its full capacity. That’s why Avalanche Services is happy to provide well pump services in Lake Ariel and the surrounding NEPA area.
When it comes to plumbing, homeowners get by with so many options.
If you live in a city, you’re probably on the municipal water system, but for those in more rural areas, using a well for drinking water is much more likely.
And just as you need regular maintenance and repairs on any other part of your plumbing, your well and well pump sometimes need some work.
So, how exactly can Avalanche help with your well?
What Can Go Wrong with Your Well Pump?
In case you don’t know the specifics of how your well actually works, the pump inside your well is the technology that takes water from the ground and transports it up your plumbing pipes and into your home’s storage tank, where you can then use it for whatever you need.
Needless to say, if the pump breaks or otherwise malfunctions, you won’t have water.
The operations of a well pump are different depending on the type of pump you have (submersible pumps for deeper wells, jet pumps for shallow wells).
So, why might your well pump fail and cause you to need a well pump service in Lake Ariel or the surrounding areas?
- Its age – as with all machinery, well pumps can’t perform at their same capacity forever, and that means age is one of the most common reasons that pumps fail. Submersible pumps typically last the longest, at around 20 to 25 years. Jet pumps last for less time on average, around 10 to 15 years.
- Dry spells – if your area experiences drought, and your well pump keeps working to bring water up to your home, even without water in the well, the whole apparatus could begin to tire. Pumps generally have a low-water cutoff to prevent this, but it’s still a situation to look out for as you go.
- Minerals in your water – you may not even realize it, but the quality of your well water could impact the lifespan of your well pump. If you have hard water with a lot of minerals, those materials could build up in your system and cause it to malfunction or reduce its lifespan.
- Tank size – A well pump could also break prematurely if it’s been working overtime for years to fill a tank that’s too small for your home. If for some reason you have an improperly sized tank for your home, and your well pump breaks before its time as a result, give Avalanche a call.
