The Importance of Water Well Maintenance

Preventative Well Maintenance Is Essential to Keeping Your Pump Working

You depend on a private well daily and you can’t afford to go a day without clean water. You can save yourself time and worry by taking preventative steps to ensure your well is working properly. Don’t let problems sneak up on you when you can act today!

The Importance of a “Well” Maintained Well

The water you drink and use should be safe and easily accessible. In the middle of your busy schedule, you shouldn’t have to worry that your well will give up on you. By taking the time to check your well routinely, you can ensure that your water is flowing efficiently and safely.

Water Flow

The water pump rate, also referred to as the well yield, is important for you and your family. You can’t live without water and you shouldn’t have to wait around for your water to flow. Causes of slow water rate can be attributed to:

  • Accumulation of mineral deposits
  • Growth of microorganisms
  • “Plugging” or clogged well due to blockage by sand, gravel, or a combination of sediment

By having your well inspected, you can spot early signs of blockage or intrusions that could negatively affect how fast your water is pumped. Taking care of these problems increases the rate at which your water is pumped.

Water Safety

One of the most important aspects of your well is the safety of the water it is pumping. You should have a water test annually to scan for things like e coli and coliform bacteria. Some obvious signs of poor water quality are staining, strange tastes, and odors from your water. Even if you don’t notice problems with your water, some signs of poor water quality are hidden and can only be detected by a test. Save you and your family from worry with water testing.

Things You Can Do Yourself

While you should schedule a professional well inspection, there are some things that you can do yourself to promote a healthier well system. You can do a visual inspection by looking for damage on your system. You should also check to make sure that the cover of your well is not damaged. If damaged, it could contribute to contamination of your well. Make sure to also keep detailed records of well inspections and service on your system.

Benefits of a Well Inspection

There are several benefits to a regularly maintained well system that go beyond water flow and quality. A well inspection from trusted professionals helps you know the condition of your well to better protect you and your family.

Prevents Bigger Problems

By having your well pump and system professionally checked, you can have problems solved before they become costly issues. It’s better to be safe than sorry with an inspection. In addition, you can prevent illnesses from happening if you are regularly having your water inspected.

Extend the Life of Your Well

Most wells last 15-20 years, but with the right maintenance, you can maximize the life of your well. If your well works longer, you won’t need to install a new system as quickly. This saves time and money.

More Efficient System

With regular maintenance, you can count on your system to work more efficiently. Increased yield means that water is there for you when you need it. You won’t need to worry about slow water when you take a shower or wash the dishes.
