Expert Water Well Maintenance Tips From the Water Dr.

As the seasons’ change, heavy rains, snow, and long periods of dryness can affect your well’s performance and health.

Wells are an excellent way of providing high-quality water throughout your property; however, to ensure it remains safe, it is indispensable that you practice regular maintenance routines.

Regular Inspections

Scheduling regular inspections is the best way to guarantee clean and healthy water comes out of your faucets year-round. Call a trusted water company to run bacteria and common contaminant tests at least once a year. However, if you notice changes in your water’s taste, color, or odor, you should contact professionals immediately!

Check The Well Cover Often

Check your well cover frequently to confirm that it is securely sealed in place and that cracks or defects have not appeared. A good way to make certain that your well’s lid is always properly sealed is to weld or bolt it!

Keep Hazardous Chemicals Away

You can never be cautious enough when dealing with dangerous chemicals. Keep harsh and hazardous chemicals and materials away from your well as they may compromise the quality of the water and endanger you and your loved ones.

Landscape Carefully

Mowing the lawn is one of the most common causes of well damage. Consider manual methods to clean the grass surrounding your well to avoid damaging its casing!

Additionally, avoid using mulch or planting anything nearby, as this could attract pests and compromise your water quality.
