6 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Well Tank

Are you constantly dealing with water pressure issues? Has the performance of your well tank been less than satisfactory? If so, it might be time to replace your well tank

Knowing when to replace your old equipment can be challenging, but several signs can alert you to the need for a new one. In this blog post, we’ll explore six key signs that indicate it’s time to replace your well tank and get back to having reliable, consistent performance from your water supply.

Your Tank is Old

Generally, a well tank should last between 10 and 15 years. If your tank is older than that, it’s likely time to replace it with a newer model. Age alone might not be enough to indicate you need a replacement, but if other signs are present, investing in a new tank could save you money and hassle.

You Notice Corrosion

Corrosion is a common issue that can occur with tanks that have reached the end of their lifespan. If you notice any rust or corrosion on the tank, it’s best to replace it as soon as possible to ensure your water remains safe.

The Tank is Noisy

If you can hear loud noises from the tank, it could be a sign that the tank has become waterlogged or damaged. In this case, it’s best to replace the tank entirely, as noise is usually an indicator of more serious problems beneath the surface.

You Experience Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure could indicate that the tank is not functioning properly. If you’ve checked all other potential causes of low water pressure and haven’t been able to solve the issue, it might be time to replace your well tank.

You Receive High Electric Bills

If your electric bills have suddenly increased for no apparent reason, it could be a sign that your well tank is no longer working efficiently. Replacing the tank helps reduce your utility bills as newer models are more energy-efficient.

Unusual Odors or Tastes

If your water has a strange odor or taste, it could be a sign that there is an issue with your well tank. It’s best to replace the tank if this is the case as it could be a sign of contamination that needs to be addressed.

I contacted WaterDR for a mitigation system for a high Radon reading after a home inspection. I spoke directly with one of the technician’s “Joe “ he was absolutely polite and informative.

Josh and the other technicians at Water Doctor are real experts and extremely knowledgeable. Even better, for the one obscure piece of equipment I had they had little experience with, they admitted they would have to check with someone else in the company before rending an opinion. These guys are honest, smart, ethical and have fair pricing. They won’t sell

The guys from Water Dr. couldn’t have been any better to deal with over the years. We sold our house and they did our least service/tune up. Years of great service on our well. Fairly priced. Just nice guys to do business with. If my new house had a well they would be my guys.
