Talking About Preventative Plumbing Services

Hey there, my name is Russell Tyson. I am going to use this site to educate my readers about services offered by plumbing professionals. When I first started my company, I was unaware of all the necessary plumbing procedures needed to keep the toilets from backing up. My clients often failed to notify me when a toilet started to fail, likely due to embarrassment or a lack of time. Luckily, I was clued into the value of hiring plumbers to perform regular maintenance and repairs on the toilets to keep them in fine shape. I hope to detail those services on this site to inspire others to embrace preventative plumbing procedures.

A Few Reasons Why Your Home May Be Without Water When You Have a Private Well

by Charlie Clarke

When you can't get water from your well, it's a serious problem that you want to have fixed right away. Different things could be to blame, and some are quick and easy fixes, while others could require drilling an entirely new well. Look into some of these causes when you have no water from your well.

When the Problem Is Sudden

If you've not had any trouble with your water and suddenly the well isn't working, then the problem might be with the electricity. Maybe the well was struck by lightning and some components burned out, or the circuit may be flipped off. Check the electrical panel to see if the circuit flipped and if so, flip it back on to see if that solves your problem. If not, call in a contractor to check the electrical system and pump in your well.

When Sediment Has Been in Your Water

If the volume or pressure of your water has been erratic or decreasing and you've seen sediment in the water, there might be a problem with your water supply. The water level may be too low and fluctuating. This could be a serious problem that could lead to the need for a deeper well. Services like Action Well & Pump Repair can check other possible causes of this problem first, such as a malfunctioning pump, and determine if the water level is to blame and what needs to be done to fix the problem.

When the Pump Has Been Acting Up

A submersible well pump is known for having a long life, but it eventually wears out. Before it finally dies, it acts up by making strange noises, causing your water to sputter, or delivering an erratic amount of water. When a submersible pump goes bad, it has to be pulled out of the well to be fixed or replaced. Your contractor may start by checking other things like the indoor storage tank, control box, and wiring to make sure everything above the ground is functioning properly before pulling out the pump to check it. If the pump is the cause of having no water from your well, then you can have peace of mind that once it's replaced, your well should work for many years without further pump problems.

When the Pump Works But There's No Water

Your water well delivers water from under the ground to the surface. After that, the water travels through pipes to go to your home where it's stored in a tank. The water is then distributed throughout your house through pipes just like any other plumbing. If your pump is operational and your system has power, then the problem might be a burst pipe. You'll probably notice a burst water pipe in your house, but if a pipe under the ground breaks, you may not know it until all the water leaks through the broken pipe and leaves you with no water in the house.
