When you have your own well, you have more control over your water supply, and the cost is reduced as well. However, you are also responsible for keeping the water running in your home. That is why it is important to have your good pump regularly inspected from time to time.
Know Who to Call
If you need a well pump repair in Toms River, you often can save a good deal of money over an installation if you contact a contractor who is well-versed in the repair of both good pumps and irrigational systems.
For example, sometimes a good pump repair is needed if the pressure switch needs to be replaced. When this happens, you can generally obtain switches in three different pressures. These pressure are as follows:
- 40 to 60 pounds per square inch (psi)
- 30 to 50 psi
- 20 to 40 psi
This information is normally found on the inner side of the cover for the switch.
Why the Pressure Tank Is Important
A pressure tank switch replacement is considered part of a good pump repair, as the water pump and pressure tank work in concert to keep the water flowing. Therefore, both of the devices make it possible for you to launder your clothes, take a shower, or use your dishwasher.
The pump directs the water from the well and delivers it to the pressure tank. The tank holds the water until a component in the plumbing system is switched on. Compressed air in the tank produces the pressure.
When a water valve is open, the tank guides the water through the pipes and only refills it when the pressure in the tank plunges below a certain rating. When the tank holds a good deal of water, less stress is placed on the good pump, as it does not have to continually cycle on and off. The tank’s switch enables the tank to receive more water and store it.
