Dodge County Well Pump Service

Causes & Solutions to Reduced Well Water Flow in Dodge County

Clogged Aerators - Well Pump Service Might Be Needed

Are your aerators clean? Dirty faucet aerators can typically be the cause of bad water pressure at the sink in residences in Dodge County. Aerators can build up with hard water deposits and many times plug up with small pieces of stuff. To unplug, simply remove the aerators and soak them overnight in undiluted vinegar. Next, rinse them off while gently brushing them with a fine copper brush or stiff bristle tooth brush to remove any remaining particles. Put them back on the faucet and test the water pressure...a quick and easy solution to low water flow.

 

Conditioner Needs Service

Water softening and iron elimination equipment can frequently be a cause of reduced water flow. A frequently criticism, from Dodge County residence, found with water conditioners is that the pressure may start out adequate, but then drops down to a trickle. Most water conditioners have a bypass valve installed in the piping system. When bypassed you may notice water pressure pick up in the residence. Often times, low water flow is a result of water a conditioner needing some level of service.

Well Pump Service Can Fix Conditioners Full of Air

Do you hear your well pump kick on and off frequently, or more often than you think that it should? A potential resolution is that your pressure tank may need to be serviced. Over time the air and water mixture gets out of balance, this is referred to as "short cycling" causing the submersible well pump to turn on and off frequently. This short cycling condition can cause damage to your submersible well pump or your shallow well jet pump. If proper service and maintenance is not performed, your well pump can have a shorter life.

Plugged Older Piping - Good Idea to Schedule Well Pump Service

What type of water pipes do you have in your Dodge County home? Are they copper, CPVC or galvanized? Often, older dwellings have galvanized piping for the water supply and many of these dwellings also have galvanized pipes going in and out of the pressure tank as well. Well water can vary in hardness and iron, and it changes from town to town. Older pipes, whether galvanized or copper will stop up with hard water calcium or iron build up. This causes a decrease in the flow of the water resulting in poor water flow and pressure. In some situations, when we change a small section of the pipes around the pressure tank area, it will increase the amount of water and pressure you receive in your Dodge County home.

 

However, knowing what type of water piping you have can be only 1/2 of the reason for poor water flow. The size or diameter of your water pipes can also be a cause of low water pressure in your home. Plumbing codes in Dodge County have changed over the years, including the proper size of water piping to use. Depending on the year your house was built, you could be dealing with a dual cause for your poor pressure.
