Re: Loud Pipes From Well


Hard to say without seeing it, but here's some possibilities:

If the pressure tank is saturated, then the well pump kicks on every time the water is used, and the pressure tank is no longer acting as a water hammer arrestor.

I'm guessing it has galvanized riser pipe, then switches to copper. If there are no torque arrestors, or they have disintegrated, then the riser could be banging against the well casing every time the pump starts.

The well pump could just be worn out.

My well's only 34', and I've never heard so much as a whisper from the submersible I put in 7 years ago. Hard pipe inside the casing, poly into the house. I often do odd bits of work right within 4-5' of the casing outside, and have never heard any sounds from it.

Yeah something is definitely unusual. I'm back home, didn't resolve anything and they don't care much (and don't care to pay since they have water), but it would be nice if I could give them some pointers.
