The Importance of Well Maintenance

Your water well is one of the most important parts of your home, as it supplies your family with drinking water, as well as water for household use.

It's important to make sure that your well is in good working order, so if there are any problems, they can be resolved quickly. This will save you time and money. Here are a few reasons you should have your well inspected on a regular basis. 

Health & Safety

There are many different ways in which a well can become polluted. This will put you and your family at risk for water born illnesses. Once a well is contaminated, it is extremely difficult to remove that contamination.

It is important to maintain your well in such a way that these pollutants cannot come into contact with your water. 

Cost Effectiveness

Regular preventative maintenance will show any minor problems with your well before they turn into large, expensive issues.

We will visually inspect several different components of your well, to ensure that everything is working properly. When this inspection is finished, we will discuss out findings with you, and answer any questions you may have to ensure that you fully understand any issues that may arise.

Environmental Issues

Common environmental issues associated with water wells include; Soil Salination and Methane Migration. 

Soil Salination occurs when the levels of the water table drop, and salt begins to accumulate. This dries out and degrades the soil, which is detrimental to nearby vegetation. 

Methane Migration is when your water source gets contaminated with Methane, which displaces Oxygen and creates the potential for an explosion.

Having your well inspected regularly will decrease the chance of these sorts of environmental issues arising.
