How to Fix Low Well Water Pressure
Fixing low water pressure with groundwater wells is tough. Sometimes the fix is easy, while other times you need an expert to get to the root cause. The first thing to do is to identify the cause of the pressure drop. Sometimes it’s not so much low water pressure, but rather low water flow that’s the issue. Having low or no water pressure can be caused by clogs in the pipes or a clogged well casing. Trying to increase pressure without first identifying the cause is a recipe for disaster. Call a professional to diagnose the problem and recommend a solution that’s safe and long-lasting.
How Much Does Water Well Repair Cost?
If you’re having issues with your water well, you’re probably wondering what will be the cost if you need significant repairs. The answer, however, isn’t as black and white as you may like. The cost to repair or replace a water well depends on many factors including the depth, location, and size of the well. Shallow well pumps are generally less expensive to replace than a submersible or deep well pump. However, the average cost for repair or replacement is around $1,500. Call us for an estimate if you think you need water well repair or replacement.

When Should You Replace Your Well Storage Tank?
Rural homes often depend on well water rather than municipal water. And these wells rely on electric pumps to bring water into the home. However, like any machine, these pumps and storage units degrade with time. Here are signs you may need well storage tank repair.
- You have low or no water pressure
- The water pressure fluctuates with pump cycling
- Your pump cycles on and off too quickly
- You see corrosion on the exterior of the tank
- You have water leaks at the pressure tank
While not all of the above are signs you need a full-blown replacement, you do need the help of an experienced plumber to ensure your home’s water needs are met.
