Lightning has always been one of the main killers of submersible well pumps. There are some steps that can be taken to protect your pump.
ONE: Install a surge / lightning arrestor, these help eliminate damage from strikes and related surges that come down the power lines.
TWO: Make sure the system is properly bonded / grounded. Systems that are properly grounded experience fewer problems and less severe damage when struck
One benefit of insurance is that most homeowner’s policies cover damage due to lightning.
