Low Water Pressure in your Waukesha County Home?

No Water? Might Need a New Well Pump … Or Something Else

We’re used to having water at the ready. Just start the faucet, or shower, or hose, and it spills out. The mechanical magic barely registers. The water’s just consistently there.


So when something interrupts this reliability, the shock is undeniable and immediate. Decreased water pressure in the home? Worse yet, suddenly no water in the house? Yikes. Time to freak out.


Maybe yes … or no.


If you have no water pressure in your Waukesha County house – kaput, out, dry, nothing coming out of any faucet or spigot – probably you require a new well pump. This pump, occasionally called a water pump, moves water from the ground into your water system’s pressure tank. It waits for use in a sink, shower or toilet.


Well pumps typically operate for 15 to 20 years. Their lives can be shorter or longer, depending on the water being circulated and how they’re used. Their well-being often is linked with condition of the pressure tank, as well – replacement of both at the same time is a regular occurrence.


What is the reason for no water pressure in the house? The first step is to call Kelly James Service, the well pump and water solutions provider in Waukesha County. Their knowledgeable team will analyze your scenario, and have your water back running within hours.


A well pump isn’t always the reason behind no water in the house. Sometimes an underground electrical wire breaks – a very repairable issue. Checking power connections is always the first step taken by Kelly James Service.


If it is a well pump, though … then why? These pumps wear out for numerous reasons. Age is unavoidable. Water with high iron content will significantly reduce pump life.


So will running water for hours on end, such as filling a pool or watering grass. These activities can lower the underground water table which, if it plummets too far, can cause the water-cooled pump to overheat.


Low water pressure in a Waukesha County house is a different condition, albeit usually less serious. This condition manifests itself in toilets filling slowly, or weak water flows from faucets or showers. Sometimes water spits out irregularly, indicating air in the line.


The problem could be a clogged iron filter – again, for Waukesha County homes with high iron content in water.


Otherwise, the problem usually ties to the pressure tank. Low or fluctuating water pressure means the well pump is short-cycling. The tank can’t sustain adequate pressure, forcing the pump to constantly turn on and off. Obviously, this takes a toll on the pump’s health.


Frankly, minimal water pressure in a home is a headache. It’s a problem that doesn’t just disappear, either. Ignoring the issue only makes it worse, as pricey infrastructure can be damaged or stop working altogether.


The proactive measure – whether you have minimal water pressure in a house, or none at all – is to contact Kelly James Service. With more than three decades’ experience of providing water solutions, their team will get your water pouring again. It will be right back at your fingertips – precisely as you expect it to be.  We are your proud Waukesha County well pump service professionals!
