Leaky or water-logged pressure tank? We can help!
In most residential well systems, water does not come directly from the well pump to your fixtures. Instead, it is drawn and held in a reservoir known as a pressure tank. The pressure tank allows homeowners to draw water on demand without needing to turn the pump on every time you need water. This benefits homeowners in two ways: pressure tanks protect and prolong the lifespan of a well pump and also provide homeowners with the water pressure they need to do simple everyday tasks (shower, fill a tub, etc).
When pressure tanks fail – the internal bladder bursts, the pressure switch malfunctions, or the tank itself springs a leak, it can jeopardize the entire well system.
You may have an issue with your well pressure tank if:
- You hear the well pump kicking on every time you use water
- Your water pressure is fluctuating wildly
- You see a visible leak
It is critical to repair or replace your pressure tank when problems arise to ensure you are safeguarding your well system. A failing pressure tank will increase the wear and tear on the well pump and ultimately can cause premature well pump failure.
