Homeowners typically find water wells very cost-effective and simple to maintain. However, the age of some wells, accompanied by other factors, can cause some serious damage. Faulty submersible pumps or other equipment can result in low water quality, low water production, and contamination of the water that you and your family use every day.

That’s why it’s important to keep a close eye on your well so you’ll know when it’s time to call a professional for residential water well repair. If you wait too long after noticing something wrong with your well, it could make problems worse and result in the need for a more costly repair or well replacement.

Potential Reasons Why Your Water Well Stopped Working

Not having running water in a house with a well is not something that any New Jersey homeowner wants to deal with, but it can be very helpful to understand why your well or well pump isn’t working. If you use a well in your home and your running water isn’t working, it could be for a number of reasons.  

Often, well pumps can stop working due to a power outage and need to be fixed once power is restored. If your well water isn’t working after a power outage, your well’s pressure switch may not turn on again. If you experience a power outage and your pressure switch stops working, it may need to be reset. 

Sometimes, the well could be deteriorating from the inside without you even realizing it. Here are some of the other potential reasons that your well or well pump isn’t working: 

  • Incrustation from mineral deposits
  • Sand pumping
  • Corrosion
  • Plugging of the aquifer
  • Bio-fouling by the growth of microorganisms  

In order to ensure the quality of your water, try to regularly pay attention to the well outside of your home. Here are some indicators that your well is in need of attention or residential water well repair: 

  • Decreased water pumping rate
  • Decreased water level (You’ll begin to notice this if only a small amount of water is coming out of your faucets or showerhead)
  • Sand texture or cloudiness in the water
  • Strange smell or taste in water
  • Decreased total well depth
