Pressure Tanks

Pressure tanks in wells are responsible for compressing air over the water, which pushes water through the plumbing (and into your shower, sink or other “thirsty” area). When the water gets too low in the tank, a switch is activated that kick-starts the pump and refills the tank. Basically, this is how an automated water well works. Or at least it should.

There are a couple of red flags your pressure tank might be raising to let you know something’s amiss. Does the pump rapidly turn off and on? Is the water pressure in your home embarrassingly low? Do the lights flicker whenever water is being used? Does it take forever to run a sink of water to do the dishes? These are all symptoms of a failing or broken pressure tank, and it’s not going to get better on its own.

Under Pressure

No matter what type of water tank you have, it has to have the right air to water ratio. Compressed air is the “spring” pushing water out of the tank. The most common and reliable tanks are the Bladder/Captive air type tanks. No matter which type you have, they all need a little routine maintenance and sometimes a few repairs. It might be obvious something’s not right, or you might just want to keep on top of things to prevent a bigger problem in the future.

Mike Zimmerman Well Services specializes in all types of tanks, providing TLC to ensure the water pressure in your home is up to snuff. There is no need to settle for a weak shower, or left being covered in soap with the loss of water, sometimes it’s an easy fix. Just like a massage, the right amount of pressure can make all the difference.
