When your water well isn’t working as well as it usually does, it can be a frustrating time. Chances are it is not a do it yourself type of repair, so you will need to call in professional well drilling services in Rockingham County, VA to help with the well repair. Residents in Rockingham County know they can trust the experts at Burner Well Drilling, Inc. to quickly and accurately diagnose and fix the problem, so we thought we would take the time to discuss some of the most common reasons we are called to homes for water well repair.

It’s Old

Like any other appliance in your home, the older your well and well pump are, the more likely they are to need some repairs and TLC. Well pumps generally have a lifespan of about 8 to 12 years, so if yours is older than 12 years or so, you might need to look into well repair or getting a new one put in. Your well pump’s lifespan can be influenced by a variety of factors, like your water quality, the amount of sediment present in the water, how often you use your pump and more.

The Electrical System Failed

Well repair can also be a result of electrical failures, and these failures can be a result an electrical surge or short. Sometimes, they can even be a result of lightning striking your well. You might not even notice a problem right away because sometimes well pumps that were struck by lightning still continue to work for a week or two after they were struck.

It Wasn’t Installed Correctly

When water well pumps are installed, it must be done by a licensed and experienced professional. There are so many ins and outs of proper installation that it is imperative that the technician knows what they are doing. If your water well pump is not working properly and you just had a new one installed, that might mean that it was not put in correctly in the first place. You should call the water well professionals at Burner Well Drilling for to come out and check on the installation job to ensure it was done correctly. We can also take care of new installations too, so you can call us for that if you need to.
