After years of use, well tanks often rust and leak. A well tank with a bad bladder can put an additional strain on your well pump, causing premature failure. Keep your well tank working properly.
How does a well water system work?
Most well tanks operate with an air bladder that creates pressure as water is pumped in from the well. This pressure is utilized to move water through the pipes in the house. When the pressure reaches about 40-60 psi, the pump shuts off.
Did you know well tanks come in different sizes? If your well tank is too small then your well pump will run more frequently. This puts an increased workload on your well pump and could lead to premature failure. Making sure your well tank is properly sized may not only prolong the life of your well pump, but can save you money as well.
How much does well tank replacement cost?
It is tough to give an exact amount since well tanks come in many different sizes and styles. The cost of a well tank alone may be between $250-400. That doesn’t include installation or the additional components that often need to be replaced along with the well tank. You can contact Koegel to get upfront pricing if you’d like to learn more.
How much pressure should be in a water tank?
There are a few different pressure settings. While in operation, the pressure is typically in the 40-60 psi range. The tank will trigger the pump at just a few psi below the lower bound of 40 psi.
