What do I do if I am out of water?

The first thing you should do is check the power to your well pump. As with any HVAC appliance, checking the power is always number one. A power outage will cause your pump to malfunction or have a mechanical problem. If the power is working, remember to turn it off before you do any work or investigation into the appliance.

If the power is working right, check the pressure gauge on the tank. If you have a psi above 40, you could have a blocked filter or a filter in need of changing. You may also have a broken pressure gauge or you may need to replace some of your wires. Any of these issues can be solved by one of the qualified experts in our office.
