Limited To No Water Supply From Your Well? 4 Questions To Ask Before Having A New Well Drilled


When you start having problems with adequate water supply to your home, you may think that you need to have a new well drilled. However, this is not always necessary. Before you even think about having a new well drilled in your backyard, you may want to consider that your limited to water supply may be caused by the well pump or other issues. Here are a few questions to ask before just assuming you need a new well:

Is Power Being Supplied to the Well Pump?

Although it seems as if it would be common sense to check the power, sometimes the problem that seems obvious is not it. However, in the case of your well pump, the problem may lie within the power supply. If your home is not receiving enough water, check the power. Make sure that the electrical circuit has not tripped, which can be caused by increased power usage. If it hasn't been tripped, go ahead and turn it off and back on again just to be sure.

How's the Weather Been Recently?

If you have noticed the water coming out of your kitchen and bathroom faucet has been sputtering, it may be due to recent drought conditions. Extended periods of significantly dry weather can cause the water level in your well to drop, which means that the water pump may not be submersed in the water and is failing to operate. The pump may need to be adjusted to accommodate for dry weather conditions.

Where Is Your Pump Located?

As mentioned, your water pump needs to be at the right depth in order to reliably deliver water to your home. If the pump was not installed properly, it could be causing problems with water delivery now. If the pump is not properly placed, it can cause air to be brought into the system and your home rather than water.

What is the Size of Your Pump?

Rather than the depth of the pump, the problem could be that your well pump is actually too small in size. The well pump's size is determined by your home's size, the number of in-home plumbing fixtures as well as peak water demands. Homes that also have a business, livestock or irrigation system may need a larger pump than the traditional household. If you've recently performed a home remodel and increased the number of plumbing fixtures or someone has moved in with you and more water is being used, your water pump may not be the appropriate size.

As you can see, there are numerous problems that can crop up after your well has been drilled. Consult with a professional at a company like Henderson Well & Pump Co. if you ever feel that you have a well pump problem. If your well has truly run dry, it may be time to consult with a well drilling expert to find out about having a new well drilled.
