When your water pump is working properly, it keeps your home’s pipes from freezing during cold weather. It also makes sure that there is never any water in the basement or crawl space of your home. But if your CH & E PUMPS are not working properly, it can lead to problems with your plumbing and even cause damage to your home.
Here are 10 signs that might indicate that you need to get a new one:
1. The Water Pump Is Making Strange Noises
If your water pump is making odd noises or grinding, it may be time to replace it. If you don’t, the sound will only get louder and more pronounced, and eventually, it will make a clicking noise which means the seal has broken. This can lead to leaks, which can cause mold and mildew in your home.
2. You Have Rusty Water
You may have rust-colored water coming from your faucets if your water pump is old and rusty. If this is happening, then you’ll want to replace your pump as soon as possible because rust can damage the inner workings of your faucet and cause leaks in other areas of your home.
3. You hear strange noises when the pump kicks on and off
This could be a sign that something has gone wrong with your pump, or it could just mean that it’s time to replace it anyway because it’s old and worn out. If you’re unsure which it is, call a plumber or someone who knows about these things to have them come out and take a look at it before deciding whether or not to replace it.
4. Your hot water isn’t hot enough (or cold enough)
One thing that can definitely affect your hot water temperature is an old or failing water pump—especially if there are other signs of poor performance in addition to this one! It’s best to have an expert examine what’s going on with your system before deciding whether or not it needs replacing.
If you’ve noticed any of the 10 signs above, it’s time to replace your water pump. Don’t put it off, or you could end up with serious consequences that are far worse than having to pay for a new water pump. If you feel like any of them apply to you, then it might be time for a new one.
