Four generations of experience installing, maintaining and
repairing wells throughout Utah and Wyoming.

Certain repairs or other issues with components in or around our homes are best performed by trained professionals, and the realm of water wells is a great example. While there are certain minor well upkeep areas that well owners can certainly handle on their own even if they have no such training, there are also a number of cases where problems or concerns with your well should only be assessed and remedied by pros.

At Mike Zimmerman Well Service LLC, we’re here to help with a huge range of water well services for clients around Utah, including water well inspections, water well and pump repairs, and more. Here are some examples of water well issues that should always be handled by our team of trained professionals, plus why this is the case and some of the major risks of attempting these fixes without training.

Consistently Discolored Water

If you’ve noticed consistent discoloration of your well water, particularly if this has lasted for an extended period of time, this is a red flag that something is wrong with your well. It could be a number of issues causing the discoloration – including bacteria or other harmful pollutants in the water supply – and only trained professionals can properly assess the situation and provide targeted remedies.

For instance, one potential issue here is a drop in the water table level, which can cause sediment or other debris to enter your well and discolor the water. Our pros will be able to determine if this is the case and take steps to seal off the well from nearby contaminants.

Sudden Pressure Decrease That Persists

In some cases, a temporary pressure drop from your system may be no major concern – it could signal a minor blockage somewhere that will clear up on its own. However, if this persists and continues to cause a significant drop in water pressure throughout the home or property, it could be due to a major issue – such as a burst well pipe or other damage.

And in these cases, attempting to fix the issue on your own is not only dangerous, but can actually cause more harm than good. This is especially true if you don’t have proper training and tools for well repair – our team at Mike Zimmerman Well Service LLC will be able to quickly diagnose the issue and provide targeted repairs that won’t disrupt your water supply or potentially cause further damage.

Odd Smells or Tastes

Water well owners should be familiar with the normal smell and taste of their water – so if you notice any sudden changes in these areas, it’s time to call our professionals for an assessment. Strange smells or tastes in your water can indicate a number of issues, including bacteria growth or harmful pollutants entering the water supply.

In addition to being able to properly diagnose the issue, our team will also be able to recommend and implement targeted solutions that will restore your water supply to its normal state and prevent any further issues in the future.

Clicking or Other Sounds

Another sign of potential well issues is any strange sounds coming from your well or pump system. These could range from clicking noises to grinding or rattling – and no matter what the sound is, it’s a clear indicator that something is wrong.

Attempting to fix these issues on your own can be incredibly dangerous, especially if you don’t have experience with wells and pumps. Our pros at Mike Zimmerman Well Service LLC will be able to safely assess and repair any issues with your well and pump system, ensuring that you have safe, clean water for your home or property.

Pump Short-Cycling

When we refer to pump short-cycling, we’re talking about when your well pump turns on and off frequently in a short period of time. This could be due to a number of issues, including a faulty pressure switch or an improper installation.

DIY attempts at fixing this problem can lead to further damage and potentially even result in the need for a completely new well pump. Don’t risk it – trust our trained professionals to diagnose and repair any issues with your well pump, ensuring it functions properly for years to come.

Any Continuous Signs of Contamination

Finally, any signs of contamination in your well water should be handled by trained professionals immediately. This could include a foul odor or taste, visible particles, or even illness after consuming the water.

Our team at Mike Zimmerman Well Service LLC has the necessary expertise and tools to properly test for contaminants and implement targeted solutions that will get your well back to providing safe, clean water for you and your family.
