We don’t realize how much we rely on (and need) water pressure until we don’t have any. It is an extremely frustrating problem for homeowners because it makes life more difficult than it needs to be. That’s why we aren’t ever surprised by people who call us at Monticello Pump Services, Inc. for free troubleshooting to address well water pressure issues.
Why do I constantly have low water pressure?
Unfortunately, there is no one set reason why you may be experiencing low water pressure all the time. For example, if you notice low water pressure only from one area of the home, check the faucets to see if there is any debris blocking the flow. On the other hand, if you are experiencing low water pressure throughout the home, you are probably dealing with another issue, such as the shut off valve not being in the correct position. Or, you could be dealing with a more serious issue, such as your pump not being able to keep up with the demand, which will require help from the pros.
Why does my water pressure come and go?
Have you noticed the water pressure in your house seems to fluctuate – like some days the water pressure is better than others? We call this intermittent. Like the previous question, there are several reasons why you may be experiencing intermittent water pressure. The diaphragm in the tank could be waterlogged, or a filter may be blocked. But it may be more problematic. You may have a well pump failure or a short.
Why am I only getting a trickle and no water pressure?
If you are barely getting any water and have low water pressure, then you may be dealing with a psi issue. Well pumps are made to work within a certain psi (pressure per square inch), typically between 40-60 psi. If there are multiple water sources being run at the same time in your home, it will affect the psi.
Why am I getting no pressure from well?
Similar to low water pressure, there are multiple reasons why your well pump runs but no water pressure comes. Like low water pressure, no water pressure may be a quick and easy fix that we can troubleshoot over the phone, or you may be facing something more serious. For instance, if your pump is running, but you are getting no water pressure, your well could be starting to fail.
