Beaver Dam Well Pump Service

Causes & Solutions to Bad Well Water Pressure in Beaver Dam

Clogged Aerators - Well Pump Service Might Be Needed

Are your aerators clean? Dirty faucet aerators can commonly be the cause of low water pressure at the sink in homes in Beaver Dam. Aerators can build 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 undiluted vinegar. Then, rinse them off while gently brushing them with a fine copper brush or stiff bristle tooth brush to remove any remaining debris. Attach again to the faucet and test the water flow...a quick and easy solution to poor water pressure.

 

Conditioning Equipment Needs Service

Water softening and iron elimination equipment can frequently be a cause of bad water flow. A common criticism, from Beaver Dam residence, found with water conditioners is that the pressure may when new be 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 flow pick up in the residence. Often times, poor water pressure is a result of water conditioning equipment needing some level of service.

Well Pump Service Can Fix Conditioning Equipment 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 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 Beaver Dam place? Are they copper, CPVC or galvanized? Frequently, older dwellings 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 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 piping around the pressure tank area, it will increase the amount of water and pressure you receive in your Beaver Dam home.

 

However, knowing what type of water piping you have can be only half of the reason for poor water pressure. The size or diameter of your water pipes can also be a cause of poor water pressure in your residence. Plumbing codes in Beaver Dam have changed over time, 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.
