Water Servicing FAQ

Expansion tanks directly affect when your pump turns on and off. When they fail, they cause the pump to turn on and off rapidly, damaging the motor. Give us a call for a quote!

There are a few reasons for staining, most common are brown/orange stains from iron or green stains from a low ph. Call and schedule a water test so we can help you find a solution!

Hydrogen sulfide gas often smells like eggs. Sometimes certain water quality scenarios will cause the anode rod in a water heater to prematurely erode, the off-gas often has an unpleasant odor.

The EPA does not regulate private wells. It is important to test your water yourself to ensure the safety and quality. We can make almost any well water clean and safe to drink with a properly designed filtration system.

A water softener system for your home or business is a filtration system that removes high concentrations of calcium, magnesium, and other metal cations found in both city and well water. The act of “softening” your water leaves fewer stains on dishware, allows for less soap use, softens the hair and skin, and extends the lifespan of clothing and other laundry.

Well systems often can go extensive periods of time without seemingly any concerns. However, a system that is not maintained can unknowingly experience wear and tear on the system components that ultimately cause excessive energy usage, resulting in higher electric bills.  Also, the multiple mechanical components of a well system do lose their proper calibrations over time, resulting in loss of life expectancy to the well pump and or water storage tank. The two most expensive items to replace on a well pumping system.

Yes! There can be a number of reasons why you are experiencing low water pressure.  Most of the time the problem can be addressed with an easy adjustment or sometimes there is a bigger issue going on within the system that needs to be corrected. Some examples of these would be a leak in a pipe, either in the well itself or under the ground between the well and the house, an older weak pump that needs to be replaced, minerals clogging up the system restricting water flow.  Ultimately there is no real reason why you need to continually suffer or deal with low water pressure. Having a simple system checkup can diagnose the reason behind the issue.

Water Servicing Testimonials

  • I bought a home here in Maine three years ago. We were told nothing about previous cleaning/service on the water filters for the well. Of course we used the service on the stickers from "earlier" service calls. Come to find out, the builder/homeowner had been servicing the filters himself! Then when we called the supposed service, they did not take the time to figure out what they needed to do to keep our water clean! To make a little NG story short, Jeff, from McMahon's, took the time to do the job that should have been done years ago, and fixed our problem. Cudo,s to them for hiring great people!!! Highly recommend this company to anyone who wants great service and great employees!!!

    The sulfur and iron in our water was ruining everything. I called Ed and he was immediately able to tell me what I would need and what it would cost. They came out literally the next day and within a couple of hours I was all set. It's been a month and our water is perfect. They have even followed up personally to see how things are going. I highly recommend this company.

    We had a water failure at a commercial establishment, right before one of the most important days of the year. Yes, it had to happen on the weekend. Chad was out immediately. He had the problem diagnosed within minutes and had the new well pump installed within a few hours! So grateful and impressed!

    We have well water. Our problems were high manganese and a sulfur odor. Our plumbing fixtures, toilets, sinks, and everything that came in contact with the water was discolored. I couldn’t keep them clean and we certainly didn’t want to drink our water. We contacted McMahon Water Service. They were able to tell us what we needed immediately. They installed an Entipur system soon thereafter. It was one of the best investments we ever made. We immediately saw and tasted the difference in our water. We gladly drink our water now and no more scrubbing the fixtures. Also no filters to change. McMahon will come out once per year to service our system. We are very happy with McMahon and recommend them highly to anyone with water problems.

  • Had been looking around at options for a filtration system for our new house as we have some poor quality water (high salt, mineral and sediment) and Ed was great about talking us through our options. With a few water service companies they will heavily pressure getting a whole house RO system of which was not an option for us. Ed gave no pressure advice and guided us through the pros and cons of each device which was a huge relief as we never felt upsold or lied to. He was very reasonable and straight forward. Once we had a filtration system in mind Ed sent us an estimate and scheduled us promptly. He was and has been very easy to get in contact with regarding any question. I have nothing but praise and look forward to working more with McMahon over the coming years.

    With one phone call we experienced the best customer service ever. Very pleasant to talk to, very understanding of the situation, and very knowledgeable in the service. We had a time scheduled the same day, yes, the same day. They went above and beyond when asking for a 30 minute window in order to get home from work, and they did just that. Chad was wonderful and polite, and explained everything to us. He knew and fixed the problem in a blink of an eye. Thanks so much for being a great business to work with.

    Ed and Chad were polite, professional and explained each step as they did it. I could not have asked for a better experience. My husband and I had attempted to replace a well pump by ourselves and could not figure out the problem of why we couldn't get water into the house. I called Ed and Chad at 430pm and they came to my home at 9am the next morning. They were extremely clean, wiping the tank every time water dripped on it. Eventually they had to climb in the well and replace pipes. They did not hesitate and they were affordable for the work they completed. Honestly I expected the cost to be much more with 2 service people on site. I am so grateful and wish my first call had been to Ed and Chad. The first people I had called came and left within 20 minutes telling me they were unable to fix it and wanted $200. Ed and Chad treated me like a friend and I really needed that after 2-3 days without water. If you are thinking about calling Ed and Chad, do it! You won't regret it!
