Common Causes of Submersible Water Pump Failures

The pump is a critical module in a well because it facilitates the process of water distribution to the building. The submersible model is beneficial because it can draw water from pumps of varying depths. Moreover, good structures are low-maintenance and durable, so they will provide long-term service. However, there is no infallible pump in the market. You are likely to experience some problems over time especially as the module grows old. It is advisable for you to engage a technician from a company such as for all the well pump diagnostic and repair tasks to ensure long-lasting repair. On the other hand, you should understand the causes of common submersible problems so that you can prevent the escalation of any issues.

Wrong Depth

The submersible pump is designed for installation under the well water. This allows the equipment to pump water efficiently from any depth within the aquifer. Generally, the pump is installed relatively lower than the upper water surface so that there will be ample water to draw for prolonged periods. If the pump is placed at the wrong depth, the well water will fall below the pump, forcing the pump to be fully or partially dry. When this problem occurs, you will notice gradual reduction and sputtering of water through the faucets. You should also note that the water levels in a well can fall drastically due to drought. This will also result in a pump placed above the water. You should call a professional to check the depth of the well water and reinstall the system below the water.

Poor Water Quality

The submersible pump is exposed to the water, therefore the quality of the material can affect the performance of the system. Ideally, this type of pump can function for long periods of time without servicing. However, all wells do not produce homogenous water, so the circumstances are not always ideal. For example, if your well is shallow, it is likely to have contaminants such as sand and silt, which abrade the internal components of the pump. This will interfere with the function as well as lifespan of the submersible pump. If you notice that your faucets are producing murky or muddy water, consult a pump expert for assistance.


The electrical power is a common cause of pump failure. Therefore, you should assess the connections if the pump is not working. For instance, you should check the circuit to ensure that the breaker has not been tripped by power surges. However, it is not advisable to attempt repair without professional guidance.
