Well Water Maintenance You Can Probably Do Yourself

If you manage properties with water supplied by wells, there may be some well maintenance that you can do on your own. If you do regular maintenance, you may save yourself unnecessary repairs if you notice an element isn’t working as well as it should. If you wait until it’s broken, it may be significantly more costly. So, here’s one of the main things you can do to save yourself time and money.

Maintenance on the Pressure Switch

You can find the pressure switch near the bottom of your pressure tank. This needs periodic maintenance, and without it, it’s the most common issue of pumping problems. Obviously, you’ll need to turn of the breaker before doing pressure switch maintenance. Look for the breaker labeled “well” or “well pump.”

Test with a non-contact voltage tester. If the pump doesn’t work at all, look for pitting or burning on the contacts of the relay switch. If there is deep pitting, you’ll end up needing to have the entire pressure switch replaced. Otherwise, just clean the contacts with a fine-grit emery cloth until the metal is nice and shiny. Also, look to find the pressure adjustment nut and make sure that it’s set according to the manufacturer’s instruction which will be printed on the inside of the switch cover.
