Pressure/Storage Tank Replacement
The pressure tank in your water well system works as a storage tank, the pump moving water from your underground well moves the water into the tank and pressurizes it so that when you need to use it the water comes out reliably at the right pressure every time. If your tank isn’t a high quality product or hasn’t had regular servicing then it can begin to fail, causing the pressure to change intermittently and eventually drop pressure completely. We can come and inspect your pressure tank and deem whether it is repairable or it needs replacement.
There are a few reasons for a pressure tank to fail, with many small components like diaphragms within the tank controlling the pressure that builds in the tank. If these components aren’t regularly checked and replaced when they start to show signs of wear it can lead to expensive repair costs down the track. Our team of expert contractors can use specialist inspection equipment to help diagnose and inspect your water storage tank to see what has failed, making sure that the problem is specific to the pressure tank and you won’t have any issues with a new water tank.
When a pressure tank is malfunctioning, it cause the pump to constantly be turning on and off trying to maintain the correct pressure, this can cause the pump to burn out if left to happen for too long, effecting the seals and electronics. When your pressure tank fails and needs replacing, it is also important to ensure the pump is checked for damage, it’s better to repair the pump earlier than having to replace the entire pump system shortly after installing your new pressure tank. We can give your pump a check to make sure its running efficiently and filling your new pressure tank properly.
After you’ve had a pressure tank fail on you, you begin to realize the importance of having a reliable tank fitted within your system. The two main things that attribute to a long lasting pressure tank is regular servicing and high-quality parts being used. If you don’t select a good quality pressure tank, even if you have regular servicing you can find that the components within the pressure tank are still being replaced somewhat frequently, we always recommend to our customers to invest in a good quality tank at the start to avoid issues further down the line.
Depending where your tank is located, servicing is generally quite simple and easy and can be completed quite quickly. This simple service can make a huge difference in how long your pressure tank lasts for, and a properly functioning water storage tank will help the rest of the components in your water well system run smoothly and last longer. We have a range of tools and equipment to make servicing easier and help us to check over things that can be missed with just visual inspections.
