What do I do if my well water stops working?

You never stop to think about the convenience of running water in your home until you turn on a faucet only to find no well water comes out. Panic sets in! What am I going to do without well water? I can’t shower, I can’t do laundry, I can’t do dishes, I can’t even flush the toilet!

OK, so the first thought that runs through your head is “this is bad”, I’m probably going to need a new well, this is going to cost me a bundle! But wait, after the panic then comes the logic, this thing runs on electricity, maybe the power is off, I’ll check the breaker.

New it couldn’t be that simple, I’ll break out the electrical tester and make sure I’m getting power at the pressure switch and pump.

I’m getting power to the switch but it’s not turning the pump on? I’m thinking the pressure switch is bad. You can pick a pressure switch up for your well water system for about $50.00. If you are going to attempt to replace this or any part yourself, don’t forget to turn the power off prior to starting.
