Frequently Asked Questions

How long do well pumps last?

The lifespan of your well pump can vary depending on several factors, including the type of pump, its usage, and the quality of maintenance it receives. Typically, well pumps can last 15 to 25 years or more.

Here are five key considerations that can influence the longevity of your well pump:

  • Pump Type. There are two main types of well pumps: submersible and jet pumps. Submersible pumps are usually more durable and have a longer lifespan than jet pumps.
  • Water Quality. The water quality in your well can affect the pump's lifespan. Water with high levels of minerals or sediment may lead to more wear and tear on the pump components.
  • Usage. How frequently you use your well pump plays a significant role. Constantly running pumps for heavy irrigation may have a shorter lifespan. Installing a larger pressure tank can help improve the water drawdown cycle, thus reducing wear and tear on your pump.
  • Installation Quality. A well pump that a qualified technician correctly installs is likelier to have a longer lifespan. Proper installation ensures the pump operates efficiently and experiences less strain.
  • Brand and Quality. The brand and quality of the pump itself also matter. Investing in a reputable and high-quality well pump can result in a longer service life.

Does it hurt a well pump to run continuously?

Yes, it can indeed be detrimental to a well pump if it runs continuously. Well pumps are designed to cycle on and off as needed to maintain the water pressure in your pressure tank. Continuous operation can lead to excessive wear, pump burn-out, and poor water quality.

One of the critical components that can cause your well pump to run continuously is a malfunctioning check valve. The check valve prevents water from flowing back down the well after the pump turns off. If the check valve fails, water flows back into your well, causing a pressure drop. When this happens, the pump will continue pumping water into the tank to maintain the set water pressure.

How can you tell if your check value is bad? A common sign is hearing your pressure switch click on and off more often than average. If you’re experiencing this issue, contact us to schedule a service.
