A well should be cleaned every *3-4 years.
Some wells need cleaning more than others, depending on the type of water your pump is pulling.
As time goes on the well screen will start to clog up which will result in a loss of pressure.
Jet Pumps use a deeper well.
At the bottom of the drop pipe there is what is called a jet package.
When your jet package starts to clog up it will need to be replaced along with a well cleaning to get any access debris out of the well. You will notice a loss of pressure and your pump will begin losing it's prime.
This pump housing is full of minerals that build up over time. Making pressure decrease in the housing.
