What is a Pressure Tank and
How Does It Work?
Well pumps draw water out of the well and into your home, while pressure tanks are responsible for controlling the water pressure. The pressure tank is also used to hold your water supply, so your well pump doesn’t have to keep cycling on and off every time a faucet is turned on; this helps to extend the life of your well pump.
So how do pressure tanks work? When water is pumped into the pressure tank, the air in the tank gets compressed to a preset PSI (pounds per square inch), which is usually between forty and sixty. When a faucet is turned on, the air pressure inside the tank pushes the water through your plumbing lines. Once tank pressure drops to a certain level (around 20 PSI), this signals to the well pump that the pressure tank requires more water—starting the entire process over again.
Selecting the Right Pressure Tank for Your Harrisonburg Home
When choosing a new pressure tank for your home, we will need to determine the following:
- The GPH (gallons per hour) your well pump provides
- The number of faucets and plumbing fixtures on your property, including hose bibs
Once we have a better idea of your specific needs, we can help you navigate your pressure tank options, which include:
- Bladder tanks
- Diaphragm tanks
- Air-over-water tanks
No matter which type of tank you install, the air pressure will need to be checked from time to time. If you notice problems such as leaking, inconsistent water pressure, or well pump short cycling, contact us to have your pressure tank inspected and serviced.
