Well tanks: keep the pressure on

If your home or business draws water from a private well, a pressure tank is important to maintaining proper water pressure, having consistent, reliable water flow and reducing wear and tear on the well pump. If your well pump is going on every time you run the tap, you need to get your pressure tank serviced or replaced.

Tanks work by using compressed air to push down on water in the bottom half of the tank. One way to check if your tank is working properly is to tap on the top half and listen for a hollow, ringing sound. If you hear a muffled sound instead, the tank’s probably not doing its job.

Of you will be away from your home for an extended length of time during the cold months, winterizing is essential to prevent freezing and bursting pipes.
