What to Do If Your Well Stops Drawing Water
You turn on the tap to fill a glass of water. Nothing. What happened? And what happens next? If you are on a well, the first thing to do is call C&J Well Company of Indianapolis.
Why Wells Stop Working
Although they’re designed to provide years of low-maintenance, hassle-free service, water wells can run into the occasional issue. Power outages or blown fuses can impact electrical components. Filters can become clogged with rocks, sand, dirt, and other debris. Other well equipment such as pipes can crack. Groundwater table can run low. As long as well owners follow routine care and cleaning, and have their wells regularly inspected by a professional, most of these issues can be caught and corrected long before any major problems arise.
Warning Signs of No Well Water
Well, there’s the obvious – no water when you turn on the faucet or flush the toilet. However, be on the lookout for more subtle signs, too:
- A sudden drop in water pressure
- Spurts of air when opening faucets
- Sediment or cloudiness in tap water
- Tap water that tastes muddy or earthy
Basically, anything that seems out of the ordinary when using water at home can point to a potential problem.
