What many people don’t realise is that if you don’t change your filter regularly your pump could fail.
If a filter cartridge has been left well past its recommended lifespan and has become clogged up, not only will it reduce your home water pressure significantly but it puts excess strain on the pump, which is working overtime to try and move the water through an obstructed filter. When the pump is put under this type of pressure for an extended period of time, eventually it will stop working.
It’s also an opportunity for our experienced technicians to make recommendations to achieve better water pressure and make any small improvements to the system.
Years of experience has shown us that generally what happens is a pump will break down at 5pm on Friday – they never break down at a convenient time – and the after-hours/urgent nature of it tends to cost more – not to mention the inconvenience of it. Prevention through regular maintenance is key to reducing the likelihood of these situations.
