If you have a private water well system it is important to maintain it with routine well pump service. The best way to save money to to solve problems when they are small, rather than letting issues go on to become large and expensive problems.
When a preventative maintenance program is regularly performed on your well system, you will lessen the likelihood of losing water flow unexpectedly. Preventative maintenance is performed while the equipment is still working so that problems can be discovered and repaired before they result in a catastrophic failure.
One example would be a well pressure tank that has a failing diaphragm. A well pump pressure tank with a rubber bladder or diaphragm, must hold air in the tank under pressure. When the diaphragm fails, the tank will become water logged and cause your well pump to short cycle. This strain will wear out a well pump, causing two pieces of equipment to be replaced rather than just the one tank.
An easy way that a home owner can determine if their water well pressure tank has become water logged is to knock on the side of the tank. It should sound fairly hollow. If instead it sounds solid, it probably is full of water. This is a sign that you need professional help.
