Well Pump Replacement FAQs
How long does a well pump Last?
A residential well pump should last 10 to 15 years. Of course, this estimate only applies when the pump is properly maintained and is the right size for the household. A poorly maintained pump may not even last 10 years.
Choosing the correct pump for your household also affects the lifespan of the well pump. If you choose one that cannot keep up with the water demands of your household, it can quickly deteriorate.
There are many types of well pumps, and each model has strengths and weaknesses. Talk to your local Mr. Rooter about the type you have and when you should expect to replace it.
Can I replace my well pump myself?
You can replace a well pump on your own, though it is not recommended. Homeowners often lack the tools and expertise necessary to install such an important piece of plumbing equipment.
Even if you know how to install a well pump, it’s best to have it installed by a professional. Professionals can perform well pump replacement services efficiently and guarantee the device's functionality.
If you attempt to perform this installation on your own, you run the risk of damaging the well pump further.
