If your home has a water pump, you have probably been leery of the day when water pump replacement would be in order. You may be wondering just how to know when it’s time. Well, don’t stress. We at Ackerson Pump Company want to pass along a few signs that you may need water pump replacement.
1. Low water pressure
Has your home’s water pressure been on the decline? Is water just trickling from the faucet or shower? Maybe you’ve noticed an increase in air that seems to “spit” out of your faucets? Low water pressure is often one major sign that you need a water pump replacement.
2. Higher utility bills
If you recently noticed a spike in your energy bills and your HVAC is running well, then you may want to look into how efficiently your water pump is working. Pumps that are on the way out tend to work harder and continuously to get your home the water it needs—translating into increased energy use.
3. Dirty water
Unclean water coming out of your faucet is never a welcome sign. If you notice dirty water, a faulty water pump may be the culprit.
4. Loud or abnormal noises
Is your well water pump much noisier than usual? Don’t just hope that the noises go away. You may want to call a water pump professional to see what’s going on.
Each of these signs alone may indicate that your water pump may need to be replaced. If several of these signs are present, we recommend that you call a water pump replacement expert before you lose water entirely.
