Whether you bought a home with a well or you used a well drilling service to create a well for your new build, it’s important that you pay close attention to the maintenance required for your well. In this video, we’ll explore what you need to know about maintaining a private well.
There are three types of wells: dug, drilled, and driven. Each type of well requires a different maintenance schedule, so the first step to understanding proper well maintenance is to understand what type of well your home is using.
You may be able to look at the outside cover of your well to understand which type of well you have. No matter what type of well you have, it’s important that you perform regular water quality tests to ensure that the water coming from your well is safe to drink. As the well owner, it’s your responsibility to ensure that safe drinking water is flowing from your well to your home.
If you’re unsure of how to maintain your private well, you don’t have to figure it out alone. Call a professional who can help you maintain your home’s water. Experts agree this isn’t the sort of thing that you’d want to DIY.
