Many people may not know that lightning from a storm can cause damage to your water well pump, if you are having water issues like dirty sluggish water, pump kicking the breaker, or no water at all after a thunderstorm with lightning then most likely your well pump was struck. Our goal here at Haynes Well & Pump service is to make sure that everyone in the NRV has good clean working water at all times, so if your water goes out feel free to give us a call.
Here are two things you can do to hopefully prevent lightning striking 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.
Another thing many people may not know is that if you have home owners insurance they will reimburse you after turning in the invoice that we mail you, or we can e-mail or the invoice to your insurance agent.
