Stainless Steel Submersible Sewage Pump Failure Signs

Because they are an enclosed system, Stainless Steel Submersible Sewage Pump is generally very energy efficient and can have a long productive life. When they do fail, the cause is typically the seal. Seals can corrode over time and allow water to seep into the motor which can cause the motor to fail. In this instance, the most cost-effective choice is to replace the pump.

• The most common sign of failure is the absence of water at the faucet. If this happens, the first step is to check the circuit breaker. If it is switched off, turn it back on and check your water. If you still are not receiving water the problem may lie with the pump or the pressure switch on your storage tank. For this issue, it's best to contact your well water professional.

• Abrupt pump failure is not common. Often what may appear to be a problem with the pump is actually a well-related issue. Weather conditions like drought can lower the water table in your well. This can affect how the pump operates. To check this, try not using your water for several hours to allow your well to replenish. After a few hours, open the faucet and check for flow.If your water flow is normal, the issue may be that the wells replenishment rate is low due to natural conditions. Your well water professional may be able to resolve the issue by lowering the pump deeper into the well or using other methods like hydrofracturing to improve replenishment rates.

• Another sign of possible pump failure is if your water is “aerated” at the faucet. Sputtering can signal that your pump is failing, that your pump is above a lowered water table, or other issues like a bad check valve or cracked pipe. Again, if you are experiencing this problem the best solution is to contact your well water professional.

• If you notice a sudden change in water quality, for example, cloudy or muddy water at the pump, you may have sediment entering the pump. This can cause the pump to work harder and create a corrosive environment that can wear down the pumps internal elements. Again, this can often be remedied by lowering the pump deeper into the well.

• Finally, if you notice a spike in your electric bill it could indicate that your pump is working overtime. A pump that is constantly running can indicate several potential problems including a failing pump.
