There are a few primary components of any residential well water system that all work together to keep you in supply of water whenever you need it. The well pump is the main component of any private well, pumping water out of the well as needed. The well tank stores this water, keeping it under pressure so that the water flows through your faucets with ease. And the pressure switch turns on the water pump once pressure levels in the tank become too low. If you notice problems with your water pressure or with the performance of your water well, just reach out to Advanced Home Services. We install and service every part of the residential well water systems in the Idaho Falls area, including the tanks.

How a Well Tank Works

If you didn’t have a well tank, the pump would have to come on every single time you needed water. This would wear out the pump pretty quickly, which could mean replacing this expensive component every few years. That’s why you have a well tank, also known as a pressure tank.

As water enters the tank, it never touches the steel covering. Instead, it moves into a rubber bladder, which expands within the tank, compressing the air around it. This pressure pushing down on the bladder is what allows water to move out of the tank and into your home at an acceptable pressure level. A pressure switch activates once levels within the tank drop too low, and the well pump activates to refill the bladder.

Replace Your Outdated Well Tank

Well tanks of the past had a different design that made them somewhat difficult to maintain. A galvanized tank contains air and water in the same compartment. There is no bladder or diaphragm separating the compressed air from the water, which makes them much more likely to become waterlogged. If the water absorbs some of the air in the tank, the pump must cycle on and off frequently, which eliminates the purpose of having a pressure tank in the first place. Talk to our plumbers about finding a replacement tank that is the proper size for your family’s needs and that can last for many years to come.
