OUR SAME-DAY WELL-PUMP REPAIR SPECIALISTS ARE ALWAYS IN YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD AND READY TO HELP!

Based on our experience, the plumbing issues solution on your own often leads to undesired results, including a complete device malfunction. Despite the average well pump lifespan, which equals around 8 to 15 years, owners of such wells face that they don’t function well. Instead of making your own uncertain moves, leave the troubleshooting to qualified specialists from Delta Plumbing & Heating.

It is worth noting that homeowners most often face power source problems, dirty water and noisy operation of the well pump. In the first case, the fault occurs because of the circuit breaker. In order to restore the power on your own, you may flip the breaker backwards and forwards. If it does not help, then our expert will perform its replacement. Another well pump problem is brown water. Usually, this happens because of rusty pipes, which require a professional replacement. Still, it may be enough to replace the filters to eliminate small particles. Have you heard a clicking sound coming from your well pump? It most likely indicates that your pressure switch opens and closes frequently. If this has become annoying and the pump has stopped delivering water, ask our technician for advice.

Trusting our residential experts, you bet not only on a timely same-day well pump repair but also on years of experience in the plumbing business. Confirmation of the latter is the regular passing of our specialists’ extensive trainings and the presence of top certificates (North American Technician Excellence (NATE) and Red Seal).

HOW TO FIX A WELL WATER PRESSURE TANK?

The water pressure tank is an essential part of the well pump mechanism, maintaining the water pressure throughout your home and protecting the well against short cycling. Water is stored in a pressure tank to satisfy the homeowner’s needs without having to immediately activate the well pump. Consequently, the interval between pump activation and deactivation is lengthened. However, the frequent use of this tank may be accompanied by various faults, including water quality change, broken air bladder and a waterlogged tank. Our pros can efficiently address everything from this list, but it is worth staying on its waterlogging in more detail.

Depending on the model, such plumbing fixtures are divided into those that use air bladders or diagrams and those that keep a natural air cushion on top of the water-air-over tanks. In the case of bladder type, we usually replace damaged parts. Still, if the main element, the bladder, is trapped in an odd position, you can try to put everything back in place. First, we will ensure that the electricity is turned off and drain the water from the tank completely. Next, we will test the pressure valve using the tire gauge. If it turns out that the pressure of the empty water tank does not correspond to 28-30 psi, then we release all valve air and add the new one using an air compressor. When we reach the result, we turn the well pump back on, and after the water is cleaned, the filtration system will be turned on.

We will apply the following if you own an air-over water tank. First, we will turn off the electricity and drop the pressure to zero by leaving the faucet open. Once the water stops flowing, we will add air to the tank until the pressure becomes completely empty. After these actions, we shut off the water valve and continue adding air until it gets about 25 psi. When we achieve the desired result, we will turn on the valve and reconnect the well pump. If both ways are unsuccessful, our specialists will offer you replacement instead of well water pressure tank repair.

WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON WATER TANK BREAKDOWN CAUSES, AND HOW CAN THEY BE ELIMINATED?

In addition to the malfunctions described above, you may encounter other water pressure tank problems, the elimination of which alone will be pretty challenging. Remember that one initial call to Delta Plumbing & Heating may provide you with a skilled helping hand capable of getting rid of the plumbing issues below.

Water tank leaks

If you find that the water is leaking out of the water tank, you need to identify where the leak is occurring as quickly as possible. If there is a threaded fittings problem, our specialist will empty the tank, disassemble, clean and dry its parts with the following re-assembling it, using Teflon tape or pipe sealant. However, the corrosion may become the actual cause. In this case, a professional must replace rusting water tanks.

Low pressure

If you have a well pump with a filtration system, the most common cause of dropped water pressure is a filter clogged with sediment. Our specialist will be able to replace this filter at any time convenient for you. Still, it is advisable to do it regularly – every 6 months. Also, a tripped circuit-breaker could be the cause – then you will need its immediate replacement, which is also not recommended to perform by yourself if you don’t have the skills required.

Faulty motor

This problem often accompanies owners of submersible motor pumps – plumbing fixtures powered by an asynchronous motor. Two main reasons it won’t start are a blown fuse and a tripped circuit breaker. By the way, if fuse receptacles are covered with rust, they can also cause malfunctions. Resuming the correct operation of each of these elements requires their replacement. If the cause of the breakdown was debris on the pressure switch’s contact points – it needed to be cleaned up.

Defective switch

In addition to the influence on motor performance, this above-ground component near the pressure tank, regulating pump operation, may become a failure point for a complete well pump. The pressure switch itself may have a bad connection or a bad internal spring. In the first case, electrical contact surfaces could be pitted or burned, which requires replacing the entire pressure switch. In the second case, if the pressure drops after the complete cycle, this may indicate a bad internal spring, resulting in the need to switch replacements. Because there are live wires inside, a professional must inspect, clean up or replace them to avoid possible risks.

HOW TO PERFORM WELL PUMP MAINTENANCE?

Well pump is a great way to enjoy drinking water at your home anytime. However, for such a pleasure not to be temporary, it is necessary to maintain your plumbing fixture correctly and on time. Remember that prevention will always cost you less than restoration, even performed by our affordable Delta Plumbing & Heating technicians. So, what are the main steps to keep your pump functioning, provided by our “well pump maintenance near me” specialists?

First, we always pay attention to the purity of cooling fans because the device’s overheating could lead to long-term damage. In this situation, we wipe away any dust, dirt, dried leaves, or spider webs that may stick there. Another way to prevent future faults like rusting is to use anti-corrosion solutions. After comprehensive diagnostics, we will select the best product to suit your pump. Further, suppose we find dripping water or visible cracks in our diagnostics. In that case, we will eliminate such defects by tightening things up or replacing the damaged parts. In addition, we draw your attention to the need for regular well pump maintenance every 3-5 years to ensure it’s in working order.

At Delta Plumbing & Heating, we pay attention not only to professional installation and restoration but also to the proper maintenance of plumbing facilities. With our experts’ 10 years of experience and the latest equipment, our service will help extend a well pump’s life and provide the necessary attention and care. Moreover, you can save more money on domestic issues thanks to valuable coupons and other promotions.

DO YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE WELL PUMP?

Only restoration may not be enough to renew the correct operation of the plumbing fixture. As noted above, a well pump lasts about 8 to 15 years on average. However, not only can age make you think about its replacement, but other signs may indicate this.

For example, if you notice dirty water (sand, sediment, metallic taste, egg smell) in your well. The pump may be too big for your well, in which case it’s bringing unwanted materials up from the bottom. In addition, you may find that your pump runs constantly. This can be a leaking pipe, defective pressure switch or wear-and-tear well pump. The reason often lies in the last version, but you need a plumber to define it. A noticeable decrease in water pressure can also become a sign to replace a well pump, which indicates that your pump is failing to pull as much water up as usual.

With modern equipment and 10+ years of practice, we can precisely determine the cause of the failure and recommend the best solution to your well pump trouble. Whether you need a complete replacement or a local sediment cleanup – we will do our best to leave you 100% satisfied. In turn, we advise you not to make premature conclusions and call Delta Plumbing & Heating specialists.
