Water Wells that Won’t Work (And What To Do)

hand_well_pumpIt’s just another quiet, peaceful morning up in the foothills. Like a windup doll you start your daily ritual of preparing coffee to rouse the senses and convince your brain it’s a good idea to think. You step to the sink, turn on the faucet, and wait… no water!

If this sound familiar, you might even respond with a half woken here we go again. But no matter how many times it’s happened before, when your well stops producing water, everything becomes difficult. Cooking, cleaning, and bathing are out of the question, not to mention gardening & irrigation, swamp coolers, and, that’s right, the toilet won’t work either.

Sometimes there’s no warning, but often times a well system will have one or several signs that there’s something wrong. Quick diagnosis and repair can be the difference between a simple fix and a costly pump replacement. What starts as a minor failure can result in collateral damage that exponentially increase the cost, difficulty, and effectiveness of repairs to your system.

Because of the complexity of modern residential well systems, troubleshooting can be difficult and prone to errors. The only sure fire way to determine the source of a failure is to contact a license well and pump contractor in the area. Earl’s Plumbing is proud to offer this service to our entire service area.
