WATER WELL SERVICE & REPAIR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do you know if I need well service or pump repair?
If there is low water pressure, dirty water, water surging, or if you have spits of air coming from your faucet this is an indication that you are having trouble with either the water well pump or the well pressure tank.
Call Well Pump Repair Salem Oregon first rather than trying to service or troubleshoot your own well. When you attempt to repair your own problem it usually fails to solve the problem and it could make it worse. Hiring a Qualified professional water well system contractor can save time and money. We use specialized equipment, materials, and techniques to keep well systems operational and water supplies safe.
What could be wrong with my well or well pump?
If you are out of water or having other issues we will check the whole system starting with the electrical system and breaker box. If the electrical system is working then we will check the well pressure tank and see if there is pressure. If the pressure is over 40 psi we move to the filter (if you have one) to see if it is blocked or needs to be changed. Frequently we have found broken pressure gauges or gauges that get stuck. We also will inspect wiring and check the water pump. These are some of the most common issues.

Our Well Pump Repair Salem Oregon service rates will vary depending on what the issue or problem is with your water system. It may be something simple or you may need Well Pump Repair Salem Oregon.

Depending on the type of well pump, the horsepower and the gallons per minute you need there can be a large difference in prices for well pumps. The well pumps we recommend and install are professional grade pumps such as Goulds, Franklin Electric, Sta-Rite, Grundfos, etc. It will help us assess your situation and give you a quicker turn around if you know the depth of your well, the size or horsepower of your pump and the age of the pump.
What should you do when your water well stops working?
The first thing for Well Pump Repair Salem Oregon is to check and see what your pressure gauge is reading on the water tank. If the gauge reads 0 – 20 psi then check the electrical box to see if a breaker has been tripped. If you see that a breaker is tripped it may mean that the well pump has failed or wiring has shorted. If the pressure gauge is reading 40+ psi you may have a blocked water filter (if you have one).
How is a water pump extracted from the well safely?
If your well pump needs to be replaced we will remove the existing water pump from the well. To do this we will need to know how deep the well is. You should NOT try to remove the pump yourself, as you could damage the well, it should be left to the professionals. Trying to do Well Pump Repair Salem Oregon yourself can be dangerous. Well pump removal can be difficult and we occasionally get phone calls from a homeowner who has dropped their pump down the well. If a well pump is difficult to remove or an attempted removal has gone wrong, it will cost the homeowner more money to retrieve the old pump and then install a new one. Most pumps need to be pulled with pump pullers or they may need to be removed with a hoist (crane) truck. Pumps can be very heavy very slippery due to iron and manganese that may have deposited on the outside of the pipe.
