Broken Wire: There are wires that travel from your house, underground and down your well to reach your submersible pump. These wires can occasionally break, due to age or direct damage. Luckily, most of the time the damaged wire is located in the well itself, so it can be accessed and repaired easily.
Broken Well Pump: Submersible pumps and jet pumps can work for many years, but at some point they will fail. There are many reasons why the aging pump fails, such as mineral build up, burn-out, or failed parts. At this time many people with jet pumps decide to switch to a submersible pump.
Running out of Water: It is possible for your well to run out of water and if you’re not aware of this, your pump will continuously run, trying to produce water. This will cause pump burn-out. To prevent this, a PumpTec, which is an automatic shut-off, can be installed as a proactive measure.
