22 Nov Lack Of Water Pressure Issues
If you are experiencing problems with a lack of water pressure or you simply are not getting any water at all, there are a couple of possible reasons behind the problem. By first exploring these possible issues, you may be able to save yourself the trouble of having to contact a company like Pump Service Idaho to service your well. On the other hand, if you simply are not comfortable with handling it yourself or if you have tried troubleshooting and still have not identified the problem, we will be happy to help! In the meantime, here is a look at a few of the common causes of lack of water pressure or no water at all.
If you are not getting any water at all when you turn on a faucet or flush the toilet, some of the possible causes include:
- Circuit Breaker: If no power is getting to the pump, it will not function. Turn the pump off, reset the breaker and then turn the pump back on to see if this resolves the issue.
- Pressure Tank: If the pressure tank that stores water has pulled away from the well, it may have shut off and needs to be reset.
- Pipes: A plumbing failure, such as a broken pipe, can cause your pump to run nonstop and leads to a loss of water. You may see a flooded section in your yard indicating a pipe has broken. Clearly, this will need to be repaired in order to get water again to your home.
- Drought: A drought can cause your well to run dry. Obviously, there is not much you can do to address this situation. Thankfully, this is not a common occurrence for most Idaho residents.
Loss of Pressure
Loss of water pressure can be caused by a couple factors. These include:
- Pressure Tank: Holes in the tank or in its mechanisms may need to be repaired.
- Pipes: Iron bacteria buildup can slow down water movement
