Check out this list of tips on taking care of your well
Many people wonder how to take care of well water. Angel Water knows how and wants to provide you with excellent care when servicing your well. If you have questions, consider checking out this list of 6 tips for taking care of your well or scheduling a consultation with one of our skilled technicians or plumbers.
1. Call Angel Water to Service Your Well
In 42 years of service we’ve realized when customers try to handle their own wells, unnecessary problems arise. Our technicians and plumbers are trained in proper procedure and can identify the source of the problem with up-to-date equipment and techniques.
2. Test your well water regularly
Testing well water will ensure that bacteria, nitrates and contaminates have not entered your water supply. It will also identify any color or flavor changes that may have occurred to your water overtime.
3. Preventative Maintenance decreases long-term costs
By scheduling regular check-ups and annual visits, you can prevent problems before they start. Our highly-skilled technicians will be able to educate you on why your well needs maintenance and how you can prevent future problems.
4. Watch what’s around your well
Never pile snow or leaves around the base of your well as it may cause structural damage. In addition, all hazardous materials such as paint, fertilizer, pesticides, and motor oil, should be kept far away from your well.
5. Researching your options
Make sure to do your homework when researching options surrounding your well. This is a good idea if you’re getting a maintenance check-up or service for a specific issue. At the end of your service, our trained technician or plumber will provide you with a concise report on what’s going on with your well.
6. Sealing your well
We don’t think it’s safe to drink water from a well that is more than 20 years old. When your well has come to the end of its life, make sure to contact someone who is certified in sealing your well after constructing a new system.
