Signs Your Well Pressure Tank Needs Service or Repair

Leaving a well tank problem unresolved will lead to deeper problems and possible well pump failure. Keep a keen eye and ear out for these common signs of well tank failure. Should you notice one of these symptoms, be sure to call Austin Plumbing, Heating & Air to prevent severe damage to the well pump and system.

The pressure tank is supposed to be watertight and airtight, which means if you see water pooling at the base of your well tank, you could be seeing signs of failure. This should be investigated by a well professional before it turns into a larger problem.

Any sort of hissing noise at or near a well tank should be taken seriously as this means that air is seeping out of the tank. When the air charge in a well pressure tank is out of balance, the well pump and pressure switch will not function in harmony and lead to further problems.

The switch that activates the pump to turn on is called the pressure switch. If this critical well component ever starts to turn on and off quickly, often referred to as chattering, this is a sign of a looming well tank problem. Call at the first sign of pressure switch noises and chattering.

Smells of hot plastic or other burning odors at or around well system pressure tanks or electrical systems are a telltale sign that something is not right. Call as soon as you notice such smells.

Most well pressure tanks have a pressure gauge attached to them that lets the homeowner know how much pressure is in the well tank. If that gauge reads zero, the well tank requires a service call or repair.

Traditional well pump and well pressure tank systems operate on a strict pressure differential. This means that the pump typically cycles between 40 and 60 PSI. You should be able to use 5-10 gallons of water before the well pump kicks on. If the pump kicks on when you only use a little water, this is a sign the well tank may need service.

Short cycling is when the well pressure switch rapidly turns on and off while water is being used. This is a very serious well tank problem that should be addressed as soon as it is noticed.
