It’s extremely frustrating when your water goes out. However, there could be a simple fix! The first thing to look at is the power to your pump. Is it on? It’s possible the power was killed on accident, causing the pump to stop operating. If your pump continually trips a power breaker, however, there may be serious issues that will require professional assistance.
If your power is fine, then you should check the pump switch next. If this has gone bad, it won’t cause the pump to start when it should. If you’re feeling handy, this is generally an easy and inexpensive swap.
If your power is on and your pump switch is in working order, then you likely will need service on the controller. Servicing any of these parts by yourself could lead to issues if done improperly, so be careful or give Eaton Well & Pump a call and we will assess the issues quickly and efficiently.
If you have had your water pump for a long time and you’ve started to notice changes in pressure or pulsing water during normal use, then it might be time to replace your water tank. The tank stores and distributes water with the most even pressure possible, but when it starts to fail, you may notice some of these symptoms:
- Decreased pressure when multiple water sources are used at once
- Leaking or pooling water around your water tank
- Drastic changes in water pressure during bathing or prolonged water usage
- Increased electrical bills
When the pump is starting and stopping more often to compensate for its failure to hold and distribute water evenly, it will consume more electricity, which can increase your bills and lead to some or all of the above symptoms. Work with Eaton to find the best new solution or fix for your water tank so you can get back to normal living!
