One Small Pipe That Plays A Large Role In Well Pump Switching
Whenever there is a disruption in the water flowing from a well water system, the first inclination is to search for a problem in the above-ground components. After looking for a tripped circuit breaker, the pressure tank and control switches are usually then examined. A less obvious cause of decreased flow, however, could be a small water pipe connecting the pressure control switch to the main water line. Most of the pipes in a well water system are wide enough to virtually eliminate the possibility of a complete blockage due to sediment buildup.
