Unhappy Pump Whistles

Our problem is when anyone uses the water in the house be it the shower or sink the water pump kicks on and we get this whistle sound coming from it. We changed the water filter to see if this was the problem but it still makes the whistle sounds and its getting annoying.

that whistle noise that you her is most likely the bearing in the motor. It only gets worst over time.

Like said if the pump motor is in the home see if it might have oil ports on it. or if you can see the motor shaft. Try and work some oil on it. If so dont over oil it. Use a #10 oil on it not the old 3In one they do have a motor oil now

Ok thanks for the tips im going to go look it over and see if i see any ports were it can be oiled at or the shaft. Its a old pump its been here for years so they tell me we just purchased the house so i hope it last a little longer for me. i have already replaced one in the garage and do not feel like replacing another one just yet..

Thanks again to all for there time and help.
