When you have a private well on your property, there will be no officials who will check to make sure your water quality is up to the recommended health standards. Instead, it will be your responsibility to ensure that you and your loved ones have a clean water supply. Though all major water well repair services should be handled by a professional company, like Perry’s Pump Repair, there are several steps that you can take to protect your well water yourself.
The sooner that you can identify potential problems, the higher your chances will be of avoiding irreversible damage to your health or well. Though you should contact a Gainesville pump repair company to check your well every year, it is important to keep an eye on your well in between these visits. While you are checking your well, make sure the well cap or well cover is in good condition. If you do notice any damage, contact Perry’s Pump Repair for assistance.
As a homeowner, you must do everything in your power to prevent your water supply from becoming contaminated. This begins with creating a 50 foot clean zone surrounding your well. Keep this area clear of fertilizers, pesticides and dog excrement. You will also want to divert water away from your well so that it has proper drainage. If not, the collected water could contain harmful chemicals that have the potential to pollute your water supply. In order to prevent flooding, make sure the wellhead is at least one foot above the landscaping and the ground slopes in the opposite direction of the well.
Annual maintenance checks will ensure that your well pump is functioning correctly. If any problems are detected, they can be corrected quickly in order to extend the life of your well water treatment equipment. Among other things, our technician will look for damage to your wellhead, which may be caused by a lawn mower or fallen branches. Typically, water is naturally filtered through the soil before it reaches the water supply. However, openings in the wellhead can allow water to seep into the groundwater unfiltered. Therefore, it is vital that our team from Perry’s Pump Repair repairs cracks immediately before this can happen. At this time, we will also test your water for signs of bacteria, nitrates, pH levels and dissolved solvents.
