Likewise, why is my pump not working? Your well pump may have stopped working due to lack of power. Sometimes resetting a breaker or replacing a fuse affected by a power surge or brownout can fix this. If the well pump circuit breaker has tripped, the well pump itself may be failing. Then switch the circuit breaker off and on.
Considering this, why has my pond pump stopped working?
Check the pump inlet and outlet for any obstructions. If this is the cause of slow moving water, remove the debris then check the pump o-rings for damages. If there are no visible obstructions, open up, and inspect the inside of the pump. Check to make sure your impeller is not broken or being trapped by any particles.
Do pond pumps use a lot of electricity?
Pond pumps have become much more efficient over the past twenty years, but a fair amount of power will always be required to move substantial volumes of water. As a guide, electric costs for: A small spouting frog ornament --- 5p per day. A powerful (20,000 lph) cascade pump, latest 'Eco' model (200w) --- 83p per day*
