There are many reasons your well may not be working. If your well has stopped working, check to see if the power is on. If there isn’t an issue with the breaker, it’s time to call a well pump repair company. Whether your pump is receiving no water from well or your pump is damaged, our team at Jesse’s Well has the expertise you need.
Inspect your breaker box for the correct breaker for your well pump. Be very cautious around your breaker box, as tampering with it comes with serious risks of electrical shock. Once you locate the breaker, check to see if it’s tripped. Turn the breaker back on and check to see if your pump turns on. If it does, wait a few minutes and test a faucet.
If not, the issue may be within the pump or the well. Do you have low water pressure or no water pressure? Low pressure may be the result of low water levels in your well, or it may be due to a clog in the line. No pressure is typically caused by a bad switch, extremely low water levels or a damaged pump.
Plumbing companies don’t typically have the necessary resources and expertise to deal with a well pump not working. Similarly, electricians may be out of their area of expertise when operating on the electrical components in a jet or submersible well pump. While it’s part of your home’s water system, a well pump uses specialized components and requires unique expertise. Contact us at Jesse’s Well for well pump repair or irrigation pump repair services in Lexington and Columbia, South Carolina. We’ll work with you to quickly diagnose the issue, repair your pump and discuss filtration options necessary to enjoy clear, pure water in your home.
