Well Pump Service and Repair in Sarasota, FL
When you depend on your well for drinking, cleaning and bathing water, it is important that you keep it running efficiently day after day. Imagine you turn on your tap one day and you get a short burst of water and then a gurgling. No water!?
Is it the well water pump, the pressure switch, the pressure tank, or a broken pipe? There are many reasons for a loss of water pressure. Pumps fail due to age, poor maintenance, high mineral content in the water, or even a power outage or power surge. Pressure switches can become corroded, worn, or even filled with insects. You may even experience leaks or cracks in the PVC pipes due to age.
Pressure tanks are a frequent issue. There needs to be the correct air to water ratio in the tank in order for it to signal the pump to switch on/off correctly and push the water through your pipes at the ideal pressure. Are you are experiencing low water pressure or pressure that decreases during use? Is your pump switching on and off rapidly(short cycling)? Does it take forever to fill the sink to wash dishes? Maybe you hear clanging or banging from your pipes when you turn the water off or flush the toilet. Are you seeing water dripping from your faucet handle when you turn it on? These are all red flags and the problem is only going to get worse. In some cases, it can even lead to water pump failure or leaking pipes and seals.

- Water & Pressure Tank Repair
- Pressure tanks are a frequent issue. There needs to be the correct air-to-water ratio in the tank for it to signal the pump to switch on/off correctly and push the water through your pipes at the ideal pressure. Is your pump switching on and off rapidly (short-cycling)? When you turn it on, is there a lack of water from the faucet handle? These are all red flags, and the problem will only worsen. In some cases, it can even lead to water pump failure or leaking pipes and seals.
5 Signs You Need Well System Repairs
1) Low Water Pressure
Are you experiencing poor water pressure or pressure that decreases during use? It could be an indication of a problem with your well pump, water pressure tanks, or a blockage in your water lines. Addressing this issue promptly will help ensure a consistent and adequate water supply
2) Pump is Constantly Running
Your well pump should run intermittently to maintain the water pressure in your tanks, similar to how a water heater functions. If you notice that your pump is running continuously without any breaks, it may indicate a leak or a malfunctioning sensor. Seek professional help to diagnose and resolve the issue promptly.
3) Weird Noises from the Pump
Machines often make strange noises when they are not functioning correctly, and well pumps are no exception. If you notice any unusual sounds emanating from your well pump, it’s crucial to call for repairs. Ignoring these noises can lead to further damage and potentially costlier repairs in the future.
4) Air Spitting from the Faucets
If you experience air coming from your faucets, it indicates that your water system is not maintaining a pressurized flow of water. This may signal an air leak in the system or a problem with your pump or water pressure tank. Prompt repairs will help restore the proper functioning of your well system.
5) Dirty or Off-Smelling Water
Well water is known for its natural cleanliness and filtration. If you notice that your water is discolored or has an unpleasant odor, it could indicate a break in the pipes, issues with your filtration system, or contamination of your well. Don’t compromise on the quality of your water – reach out to professionals who specialize in well-system repairs to identify and resolve the underlying problem.
