Emergency well system repair
Many of the historic homes in the area were built before indoor plumbing. This means that they had to ‘fake’ some of the installations. It was also a long time before any sort of building codes were developed. Additionally, there were different standards for materials.
This means that today, many plumbers find themselves in dirt cellars, tight crawlspaces or under porches. One of the most common plumbing calls we receive for historic homes is about lack of water pressure. Recently, we dispatched a Rapid Service plumber to a home built in 1832. The water pressure in the home was very poor and at times, there was no water at all. We had to check the well tank and this is how we got to it:
The problem? This well tank was completely water logged. We had to disconnect it, drag it out of the dug out section, through the crawlspace and out of the home before we could install a new tank. This kind of situation calls for an expert!
