Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

How long should a new well pump last?
There are many factors that will affect the life expectancy of a well pump, including the number of times it is called upon each day, the size (horsepower) of the pump motor, the motor quality, and amount of sediment in the water.
 

An above ground pump may last anywhere from 4 years to 15-20 years. A submersible pump operating in low-sediment water may have a 15-year life, while the same pump in high sediment water may fail within 5 or 6 years.
