Well Pump Repair & Maintenance in Newark

Many property owners enjoy the benefits of a private well. If you are like the average American, you use nearly 100 gallons of water per day. If you have your own well, this water is free, naturally filtered, and originating from a source you know and trust. Although your well pump may have fewer issues than a municipal water supply system, having a team to turn to when it malfunctions is vital for both your property and your peace of mind.

At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Newark, our well pump repair specialists have years of experience preserving property owners’ access to clean water every day. Because we understand how vital your water supply is to your daily life and long-term health, we provide 24/7 emergency services to handle any issue your water pump has at a moment’s notice.

How to Tell If Your Water Pump Is Bad

Within a well, multiple elements work together to provide the dependable water supply you need. A variety of issues can interrupt this operation, and knowing the signs of a broken water pump will help you know when it’s time to give us a call.

Here are a few signs your water pump needs repair services:

  • Low water pressure
  • Dirty water or no water at all
  • Abnormal noise/air spitting from faucets
  • High water bill because your water pump is constantly running
  • A flooded area between the well and your house

Without years of experience and well-honed methods, diagnosing the exact problem can be quite a challenge. The above symptoms may indicate an assortment of issues that have nothing to do with your actual water pump, such as broken pipes or a low supply of water in the ground. Our success over the last 46+ years stems from the fact that we address the root of any given issue. When we fix the source of the problem, we save you from the hassle and financial cost of repeated repairs.

The root of the issue affecting your water pump may include any of the following:

  • Power loss
  • A drought or dry spell
  • Overworked, poorly maintained, or inadequately-sized pump
  • Abrasive/corrosive sediment in the water
  • Improper water tank installation or maintenance

While many companies will pressure you into purchasing new systems, we will not recommend this unless we know you are truly wasting money due to constant issues with an old or unreliable water pump. Generally, a well-maintained water pump should last between 10-15 years, depending on whether it is a submersible well pump or an above-ground jet pump. Any of the above factors will affect the short-term and long-term performance of your pump, so we will assess your property and recommend the services you need to benefit from your investment for years to come.

How Much Does It Cost to Repair a Well Pump?

The cost of well pump repair in Newark will depend on several factors, including the plumbing company you choose, the well pump’s location, the type of pump, and the size of your well. This type of repair can be complicated. If your well pump is hard to access, the expense could increase. However, if the process just requires a simple shallow pump replacement, the cost will be lower. On average, well pump replacement can cost anywhere from $200 to $4,000, while well pump repairs can range from $337 to $1,379. Our plumbing technicians can help you determine whether it’s more cost-effective to repair or replace your well pump.
