Many homes in the Bandera, TX area operate off of the civic grid, which means they use well water and similar private sources to feed their home. That means you need to attend to any issues or problems with it yourself, which often includes water pressure. Low pressure is a common complain for well water, both because the pumps involved are suffering from problems and form issues inherent in the well itself.
The solution is a pressure tank, installed by professionals in your system and existing to solve the problem of low pressure for well water. Here’s how it all works.
Pressure tanks work through the use of compressed air, creating proper pressure for your water and allowing it to shoot up the pipes with the proper speed. Most homes keep a pressure level in their pipes of somewhere between 40 and 85 psi (pounds per square inch). Whenever that level drops, the pressure tank kicks in and restores the balance. That allows your water to always arrive at the pressure you expect, eliminating one of the most persistent problems that private wells often exhibit.
