What Kind of Regular Maintenance Should I do to My Pump System?

Pump systems don’t typically require annual servicing like your heating and cooling system does. You should, however, be on alert for any unusual symptoms that may be a sign of a problem. Inconsistent pressure, higher than normal utility bills and air in the lines are just a few signs that you should have your system inspected by a professional. Leaving these problems untreated could result in an even bigger problem that leaves you with a malfunctioning pump system and expensive repair bill.

What is the Average Lifespan of a Submersible Well Pump?

The average lifespan of a submersible well pump will vary depending on many factors including brand of pump and the usage rate. However, most experts agree that when a pump is properly maintained it can last on average 10 to 12 years.

Why are there Bluish Green Stains on my Fixtures?

These unsightly stains are typically caused by copper leaching into the water. When your water has a pH level below 7.0 it is considered acidic and overtime will begin to corrode copper lines. Adding an acid neutralizer to your system increases the pH level and helps bring it to a safer balance. Keep in mind, however, that dissolved oxygen and a high concentration of sulfur in the water can also lead to damage, and you should have your water tested by a professional.

What is Causing Reddish or Brown Stains on my Fixtures?

These stains are usually caused by a high level of iron in the water. In fact, a mere 0.3 ppm (parts per million) of iron is needed to cause staining. The iron will begin to react with the air and water and cause oxidation, which leads to rust. Rust eats away at metal and can shorten the lifespan of your pipes. An iron removal system can help correct the problem.

Why are White Spots Forming on my Shower Door?

These white spots are generally the result of excessive amounts of magnesium and calcium in your water. Also known as hard water, these two minerals can leave cause unsightly white staining on various surfaces in your home including glass doors, glassware, utensils and fixtures. Installing a water softener will eliminate the hard water and prevent future staining.
