Clyman Junction Well Pump Service
Causes & Solutions to Low Well Water Pressure in Clyman Junction
Plugged Aerators - Well Pump Service Might Be Needed
Are your aerators clean? Dirty faucet aerators can typically be the cause of reduced water pressure at the sink in homes in Clyman Junction. Aerators can build up with hard water calcium and many times plug up with small pieces of stuff. To clean, 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. Attach again to the faucet and test the water pressure...a quick and easy solution to bad water pressure.
Conditioning Equipment Needs Service
Water softening and iron removal equipment can frequently be a cause of poor water flow. A common complaint, from Clyman Junction residence, found with water conditioning equipment is that the flow may in the beginning 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 increase in the home. Often times, reduced 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 possible solution is that your pressure tank may need maintenance. Over time the air and water mixture can become unbalanced, 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 piping do you have in your Clyman Junction house? Are they copper, CPVC or galvanized? Often, older dwellings have galvanized piping for the water supply and many of these houses 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 pipes around the pressure tank area, it will increase the amount of water and pressure you receive in your Clyman Junction house.
However, knowing what type of water piping you have can be only half of the reason for poor water flow. The size or diameter of your water pipes can also be a cause of bad water flow in your house. Plumbing codes in Clyman Junction 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 several reasons for your poor pressure.
