Well water issues

Ask a Plumber

As indicated above, I live on an acreage.  Our water now behaves very strangely.  It starts out just fine but, it tapers off to no water at all.  I have checked my pressure tank, it is not leaking, the pressure is fine, I’m not sure what or how to proceed to figure out what and why this is happening.

  1. There are a few things that your problem could be but the number one thing we find with your symptoms is a pump that is plugged down at the screen intake. To fix the the problem, the pump would have to be brought up to the surface (they can be down in the well 30 to 300ft). An inspection would then have to be done to determine the problem and shape of the pump.
