Diefenbach Corners Well Pump Service

Causes & Solutions to Reduced Well Water Flow in Diefenbach Corners

Plugged Aerators - Well Pump Service Might Be Needed

Are your aerators clean? Dirty faucet aerators can commonly be the cause of poor water flow at the sink in homes in Diefenbach Corners. Aerators can build up with hard water calcium and many times plug up with small pieces of stuff. To unclog, simply remove the aerators and soak them overnight in straight 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 flow...a quick and easy solution to reduced water pressure.

 

Conditioning Equipment Needs Service

Water softening and iron removal equipment can frequently be a cause of poor water pressure. A common criticism, from Diefenbach Corners residence, found with water conditioners is that the pressure may start out 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 pick up in the home. Often times, low water flow 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 resolution 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 prematurely fail.

Plugged Older Piping - Good Idea to Schedule Well Pump Service

What type of water piping do you have in your Diefenbach Corners place? Are they copper, CPVC or galvanized? Often, older dwellings have galvanized pipes 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 city to city. Older pipes, 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 cases, 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 Diefenbach Corners house.

 

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 poor water pressure in your dwelling. Plumbing codes in Diefenbach Corners have changed over time, including the proper size of water piping to use. Depending on the year your dwelling was built, you could be dealing with a dual cause for your poor pressure.
