Three Reasons To Have Your Water Well Inspected Yearly

Construction & Contractors Blog

Water wells offer a number of benefits to homeowners. Wells are a private source of drinking water, and owning a well allows you to control your household's water supply without worry. If you own a water well, it's important to keep it properly maintained. If you're wary about paying for a yearly maintenance check, consider the three points listed below.

So Your Well is Running Properly

Don't settle for low flow or low pressure. A yearly maintenance appointment will ensure that your well—and all of its many parts—are running and working as they should.

A check of all water well parts isn't only important to ensure it's working properly, but also to ensure the health and safety of your family. Breaks or cracks in your pipes or other well pieces can lead to contamination of your drinking water. Failure to fix these issues can not only lead to illness, but irreversible well damage as well.

So Your Well Water is Safe for Consumption

As mentioned above, broken well equipment can lead to contamination of drinking water. This can lead to serious gastrointestinal and other illnesses. While mechanical issues can lead to contamination, they aren't the only way your well's water becomes contaminated.   

Pathogens can also enter your well water by sewer overflow, the improper handling of fertilizers and other chemicals, and through natural processes. An annual water well check includes testing for specific pathogens that can be harmful, and even deadly, to humans. This annual check can catch pathogens before they infect your family, and the well water can be treated accordingly.

So Your Well is Up to Code

Water wells are considered a construct, and therefore, they must meet local codes and regulations. Failing to meet such regulations can result in fines and other legal issues.

An annual maintenance check includes a rundown of current local codes and regulations. Such codes may include well depth, grout, well yield, and location. It's important that you keep your well up-to-date to avoid the above mentioned consequences, and the best way to do so is with a yearly check.

While there are many benefits to owning a well, one of the main drawbacks is the need for regular maintenance and yearly inspection. Above are three reasons to hire an outside company like Ace Well & Pump Co to perform your annual water well check.  These annual checks keep your well working properly, your family healthy and safe, and your well up to local code.

A Study Of Wood Flooring Materials, Tools, and Techniques

Hello, I am Deborah Stillen. My passion for hardwood flooring began at a hotel on my first vacation as an adult. The gorgeous hotel flooring was made of a mix of mahogany, walnut, and teak materials that looked exotic to my eyes. Before that, I had only lived in places with wall-to-wall carpet. Upon coming home, I began to devise a way to cover my floors in wood materials. I became an expert on all of the wood flooring options available on the market today. I also studied different installation techniques and the tools used to create amazing patterns with the wood. My house now features a fine mix of bamboo and recycled wood flooring to create a layout I adore. I hope you can use the information on this site to bring wood floors to your home. Please visit often and learn all you can about wood flooring.
