well pump noise
Posted by cmp on January 15, 2004 at 21:30:56:
I have a Red Jacket well pump that is almost 11 years old. One of the kids flushed the toliet tonight and when the pump first kicked on, it sounded normal but as it ran it got louder and then we could feel vibrations in the floor. We were sitting in the living room which is above where the pump is. Is this something I should call someone to come and check or should I just wait until the whole thing dies? Are these pumps supposed to be serviced at any particular time? And roughly what does it cost to replace a well pump? I grew up on a farm and I only remember my Dad fiddling with the well pump when it would freeze or lose its prime. Thanks!
