Well Maintenance 101


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.

I contacted WaterDR for a mitigation system for a high Radon reading after a home inspection. I spoke directly with one of the technician’s “Joe “ he was absolutely polite and informative.

Dennis and team were on time, eager to share their knowledge and full details of every aspect of the project and completed the work in a timely manner. Pricing was very fair, I will be using them for all my needs and recommending them as well.

Josh and the other technicians at Water Doctor are real experts and extremely knowledgeable. Even better, for the one obscure piece of equipment I had they had little experience with, they admitted they would have to check with someone else in the company before rending an opinion. These guys are honest, smart, ethical and have fair pricing. They won’t sell

The guys from Water Dr. couldn’t have been any better to deal with over the years. We sold our house and they did our least service/tune up. Years of great service on our well. Fairly priced. Just nice guys to do business with. If my new house had a well they would be my guys.
