How to identify a lack of pressure

Often an intermittent lack of pressure indicates a lack of maintenance or a need for maintenance on the system.

Following the identification of the lack of pressure we can target the common problems.

Here are some probable causes of lack of constant pressure.

  • Your pressure tank is faulty (flat balloon);
  • Your pressure switch is faulty;
  • Your submersible pump is at the end of its life (15 and 20 years is considered a normal life);
  • The flow rate of your well has decreased considerably;
  • The pipes are clogged.

When we talk about a lack of pressure, we must identify whether the lack is ”constant” or ”intermittent”.

  • A constant lack of pressure: in most cases affects the entire house and we do not see an increase in pressure.

Example: we open the tap and we see that the pressure is already very low and decreases until it is zero.

  • Intermittent lack of pressure: affects some or all parts of the house, but there is often a slow decrease in pressure.

Example: the tap is opened and the pressure is good, but it decreases quite quickly until it is bad or zero.

Often a constant lack of pressure reveals a more complex problem and requires calling on our services.
