22 May Top Three Causes for Loss of Water in Your Home
Are you experiencing problems with water loss from your home? If so, there are a number of potential causes for this problem that you may want to explore in order to address the issue. To that end, here is a look at the most common causes of water loss.
Loss of Power
The pressure switch on your tank as well as the pump within your water system both need electricity in order to operate. If you lose power, these electrical components will obviously not be able to do their job. As a result, you will only have the amount of water available to you that your pressure tank can hold. If you tripped a circuit, all you will need to do is switch the breaker back to the “on” position. If it is in the “on” position and the problem is not resolved, you should switch it back to the “off” position to prevent any further damage from occurring.
Improper Pump Size
If you have the wrong sized pump for your home, you may not get the water you need. In fact, your pump may become overworked so that it cycles on and off several times in one day. It is important to remember that the size of your pump is determined by the size of your plumbing system as well as the number of faucets you have and the number of appliances that are in use.
Water Table Issues
If your water table is low, you may also experience a reduction in the amount of water in your home. This may be caused by a drought or dry spell that leaves your water table lower than usually. If your water table is low, you may notice sputtering when you turn on your water. The water may also be murky or have a different taste than usual. Depending upon the extent of the problem, you may need to have a new well dug to deeper depths in order to get the water you need.Contact Pump Service
