Well Pumps and Tanks

Bad Pump vs. Tank

One of the trickiest investments to diagnose in a home is a Well Pump System.  There are many factors to consider in determining the cause of loss of pressure in your home when it occurs.  Well pumps in general can last 30 years with not much maintenance, but when the time comes for a replacement, how do you know it is a failing pump or failed tank? Determining this needs a professional opinion as there are many variables and lots of tests that need to be performed in order to tell.  First, what we need to do is determine if the tank is holding pressure.  If it is, we trace it to the pressure switch and determine if the switch is kicking on and off when its needed too.  If these all check out ok, we will do a continuity test on the pump to determine if it is bad.  There are times when the pump checks out to be ok, but the water feed line from the pump to the cap is broken.  In this case, the pump needs to be pulled and replaced.  Call us today to check over your system for a low rate of $149, which includes a pressure test of the tank, adjusting the switch if needed and testing your pump!
