Danville Well Pump Service

Causes & Solutions to Reduced Well Water Pressure in Danville

Clogged Aerators - Well Pump Service Might Be Needed

Are your aerators clean? Dirty faucet aerators can commonly be the cause of reduced water flow at the sink in residences in Danville. Aerators can accumulate up with hard water calcium and frequently stop up with small pieces of stuff. 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. Put them back on the faucet and test the water pressure...a quick and easy solution to low water flow.

 

Conditioning Equipment Needs Service

Water softening and iron elimination equipment can frequently be a cause of low water pressure. A frequently complaint, from Danville 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 pressure increase in the home. Frequently, reduced water flow is a result of water a conditioner 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 possible resolution is that your pressure tank may need to be serviced. 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 situation 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 Danville home? Are they copper, CPVC or galvanized? Often, older houses 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 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 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 Danville home.

 

However, knowing what type of water pipes 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 low water pressure in your residence. Plumbing codes in Danville have changed over time, including the proper size of water piping to use. Depending on the year your residence was built, you could be dealing with a dual cause for your poor pressure.
