Do you have low water pressure at home? There are several different ways that you can correct this issue, allowing you to get a strong shower back. So, before you consider a complete well pump replacement, make sure to try these tips.
Change Your Pressure Settings
First, you will want to check out your pressure settings on the tank. Many home wells include pressure tanks. They control how much water travels into your home, as well as how fast it moves. You can adjust the settings yourself, which is very useful.
The pressure tank likely has a setting for 40/60 psi. Simply changing the setting will make a huge difference in the amount of water that you receive. If this setting is too high for you, you can lower it to 30/50, but we don’t recommend that you go much lower than that.
Install a Pressure Booster
You can also install a water pressure booster. The pump is useful for providing better water pressure by speeding up the water that enters the home. It is especially beneficial if you have issues with water struggling to reach the top floor.
If you are unsure of how to install a water pressure booster to your plumbing, we can do it for you. Our team in Leesburg is always ready to help with well pump service.
Overall, this option costs less than replacing the entire system to correct the problem. Many people choose it when their well pump runs but no water pressure is offered.
Install a Constant Pressure System
A constant pressure system allows you to have consistent pressure on all floors of your home. It prevents the water pressure from lowering, even if multiple faucets are being used at the same time in the home.
When you contact us, we will come and inspect your current system. From there, we can install the new, needed parts to supply you with constant water pressure. Plus, can provide any needed well pump repair.
Let Us Inspect Your Pipes
Sometimes, the water pressure is being altered by clogs. Sediment, minerals, and debris can build up in your plumbing over time. This disrupts the flow of the water and lessens the pressure. It can even lead to no water making it to your home, if it’s bad enough.
We can inspect pipes in and near Fairfax and Fredericksburg, ensuring that your plumbing is clear. When we correct clogged pipes, you can expect your water pressure to increase.
