If your property has a water well, problems with equipment can mean that your home does not have running water. This is why you may want to consider improvements like a backup power source for pumps. While you are doing improvements, installing a water filtration system can also help to give you better water quality. Here are some improvements you may want to consider for your well equipment to ensure it is reliable:
1. Installing A Solar Powered Backup Pump
If you want to keep the water flowing to your home, having a backup solution is important. Solar pumps can be a great solution to give you a backup solution for your well. You may also want to consider having multiple backup solutions installed, such as a manual solution when solar batteries do not have a charge on them or equipment fails.
2. Clean Equipment To Improve Flow From Well
The flow coming from your well can cause problems with water flow and eventually lead to little or no water. To improve this, you may want to have the flow of your well tested and do improvements to correct it. This is often due to minerals and deposits clogging the casing and restricting flow, which well rehabilitation may correct.
3. Install A Water Treatment System To Remove Minerals
One of the problems that you may have with a well is high mineral content. This can be corrected with a water treatment system, which will help provide clean water and remove contaminants. It can also help reduce wear on appliances and mechanicals in your home by reduce hard water. For areas with high alkalinity and other water problems, you may want to have a complete well system installed to treat water before it enters your home.
4. Improving Production By Capping Old Abandoned Wells
If you have always relied on well water, your property may have old abandoned wells that have dried up. This can be a problem with current wells if they are not capped properly. It is a good idea to have any old wells on your property caped to prevent problems with flow and contamination from old abandoned wells.
These are some improvements you may want to consider for well equipment to ensure it is reliable. If you are ready to make your well better, contact a well service like Patterson Well Drilling Inc. and talk with them about a backup system to keep the water running from your well.
