Sometimes air may leak into a water well pipe and cause damage. Damage that become leaks and stop your well pump from running. Leaks in water well casings can be caused by a variety of things including corrosion, pressure from stones or other objects pressing against the casing, splits at a welded or defective casing seam, even a lightning strike or nearby construction site that may be blasting.
