Causes of Low Well Water Pressure:
If Your Water Pressure is Intermittent, Check the Following:
Possible Causes of Intermittent Water Pressure:
The Low Water Pressure is Intermittent:
Many things can cause low water pressure. It could be due to minor issues like the shut-off valve being closed or a faucet filter being blocked. More serious issues include pump failure, a wire short or in rare cases the well is starting to fail.
Is Your Well Water Brown When it Comes out of the Faucet? Here are Some Reasons Why:
My Water Pressure is Always Low & Water Sometimes Barely Comes Out at all:
My Well Pump Runs but Doesn’t Provide Enough Water:
This can happen if the well water level is too low or the well recovery rate is poor. The pump may also run continuously if the well pump is oversized for the yield rate. If the level is low or the well is losing water, turn off the well pump and allow the water level to recover. This could take up to several hours. Re-start the well pump. Make a note of how much water can be drawn before the water supply or flow rate drops or stops. Air discharge at plumbing fixtures is another sign of this problem.
Monticello Pump Services, Inc. always recommends calling a professional, but here are a few things you may check before calling. If you’d like to chat with a pro, we are just a phone call away and would be happy to assist you further.
Check valves are used on well water system piping. They hold pressure in the system when the pump stops. Check valves also prevent backspin of the well pump, water hammer and upthrust inside the pump. These conditions can lead to pump or motor failure, shortened service life and system operating problems.

We are so grateful to Monticello for all of the services they’ve provided to us. …we have had to replace our well-pump… Jason did all of the repair work and he was a consummate professional. Monticello was also prompt in providing information to our home insurance company which facilitated a quick claim on our end.
Suddenly our water went totally dead–so we knew it was the pump or the control inside the house. Monticello installed it 7 years ago, so we called them. They were extremely helpful right from the start, showing me how to try various things to restore the water without a visit (and a charge)..”all of the services they’ve provided to us. …we have had to replace our well-pump… Jason did all of the repair work and he was a consummate professional.

Paul at Monticello is the perfect example of what is great customer service and what it means to be a truly good human being. Not only is Paul extremely knowledgeable about sump pumps but he is extremely patient and fair. I highly recommend this business and working with Paul if you ever have any sump pump related issues. I can’t thank you enough, Paul!!
Called Monticello at 4:20AM Super Bowl Sunday and the phone was answered by Paul the owner. Clearly I woke him from a dead sleep but he immediately worked with me over the phone to determine why I did not have water. He spent at least 45 minutes working me through diagnosing the problem which ended up being a loose fuse, the best we could determine. He refused to take any payment for his help which I would have gladly paid. He could have scheduled a service call which he felt was not necessary, he said he just wanted to get the water back on for my family. In todays world so few Company’s and people exist that would do something like this that it shocks you. Thank you Paul!!!!!
I had Monticello install a constant water pressure system into my house on a Saturday afternoon. It only took the crew five hours to install. I am so happy I went with the upgrade because now I can take a shower using my body massage shower, you can definitely feel a 100% improvement in the water pressure.
Wonderful gentleman. Troubleshooted and walked me through my well water problem. I highly recommend using them for all of your well issues. Excellent customer service. Very personal. Highly professional. Could have charged me for an emergency call out. He called me back 3 times to verify that all systems were up and running.
My house is on a well and Monticello installed a constant pressure system. Now when we take showers or use the hose outside, the water pressure is unbelievable.
I use Monticello for all my well water needs. They are very polite, professional and on time.
I woke up one morning with no water, someone over the phone at Monticello Pump Service walked me step by step in trying to get my water back for me and it worked. After I was done speaking to Monticello I had my water back on and was up and running again.
