Jefferson County Well Pump Service

Causes & Solutions to Bad Well Water Pressure in Jefferson County

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 Jefferson County. Aerators can build 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 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 flow...a quick and easy solution to reduced water flow.

 

Conditioner Needs Service

Water softening and iron elimination equipment can frequently be a cause of poor water pressure. A common criticism, from Jefferson County residence, found with water conditioners is that the pressure may when new be adequate, but then drops down to a trickle. Most water conditioning equipment have a bypass valve installed in the piping system. When bypassed you may notice water pressure increase in the house. Often times, poor water pressure is a result of water conditioning equipment 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 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 prematurely fail.

Plugged Older Piping - Good Idea to Schedule Well Pump Service

What type of water pipes do you have in your Jefferson County house? Are they copper, CPVC or galvanized? Often, older homes have galvanized pipes for the water supply and many of these dwellings 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 pipes, whether galvanized or copper will plug 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 Jefferson County dwelling.

 

However, knowing what type of water pipes 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 reduced water pressure in your house. Plumbing codes in Jefferson County have changed over the years, including the proper size of water piping to use. Depending on the year your residence was built, you could be dealing with several reasons for your poor pressure.
