How Often to Service a Well Pump
Well pumps should last between 15 and 25 years. That is, with proper maintenance, of course.
A well pump should be checked and serviced at least once a year. This includes a bacterial test. Apart from your annual check, it’s critical to check your well water pump to see if there is a change in the water’s color, odor, or appearance.
Make sure to check your well pump’s cooling fans. If debris is stuck in the fans, it could cause overheating and damage to the fans. This is a leading problem for well pump owners. Another leading problem is corrosion. Always use anti-corrosion products to protect your well pump. If not, you could be dishing out hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in repairs or replacements.
