Addison Well Pump Service

Causes & Solutions to Low Well Water Flow in Addison

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 residences in Addison. Aerators can accumulate up with hard water deposits and many times plug up with small pieces of stuff. To clean, 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 particles. Put them back on the faucet and test the water pressure...a quick and easy solution to bad water flow.

 

Conditioning Equipment Needs Service

Water softening and iron removal equipment can frequently be a cause of low water pressure. A common criticism, from Addison residence, found with water conditioning equipment is that the pressure may in the beginning 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, reduced 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 potential solution is that your pressure tank may need to be serviced. 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 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 piping do you have in your Addison residence? Are they copper, CPVC or galvanized? Frequently, older dwellings have galvanized pipes 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 town to town. Older pipes, whether galvanized or copper will plug 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 pipes around the pressure tank area, it will increase the amount of water and pressure you receive in your Addison residence.

 

However, knowing what type of water piping you have can be only 1/2 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 residence. Plumbing codes in Addison have changed over time, including the proper size of water piping to use. Depending on the year your home was built, you could be dealing with several reasons for your poor pressure.
