Atwater Well Pump Service

Causes & Solutions to Poor Well Water Flow in Atwater

Dirty Aerators - Well Pump Service Might Be Needed

Are your aerators clean? Dirty faucet aerators can commonly be the cause of reduced water pressure at the sink in homes in Atwater. Aerators can accumulate up with hard water deposits and many times stop up with small pieces of sand and grit particles. To unclog, simply remove the aerators and soak them overnight in straight vinegar. Next, rinse them off while gently brushing them with a fine copper brush or stiff bristle tooth brush to remove any remaining particles. Attach again to 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 poor water flow. A common complaint, from Atwater residence, found with water conditioners is that the pressure may when new be adequate, but then reduces down to a trickle. Most water conditioners have a bypass valve installed in the piping system. When bypassed you may notice water flow pick up in the residence. Frequently, poor water pressure 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 possible solution is that your pressure tank may need maintenance. 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 prematurely fail.

Plugged Older Piping - Good Idea to Schedule Well Pump Service

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

 

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