As a current or potential well owner, it is your job to make sure you have preventative maintenance done on your well. We, here at Wright Well & Pump, and also the National Groundwater Association recommend you have your well tested and maintained at least once a year. The National Groundwater Association recently conducted a poll that confirmed 80 percent of well owners have never had a well maintenance inspection. Having your well maintained regularly is important because you as a well owner are consuming what comes out of your well. It is a matter of health as well as being cost efficient.
The National Groundwater Association recommends well testing for
- bacteria or any contaminants
-anytime there is a change in the taste, odor, or appearance of the well water
-if there is a problem, such as a broken well cap
-if you just want to monitor the performance of your home water treatment equipment.
There are some things you can do as a well owner to maintain your well also. Make sure you keep hazardous chemicals away from your well and keep a check on your well cover to make sure it stays in good repair.
If you have any questions or concerns about your water well, and are in or around Rowan, Cabarrus, Mecklenberg, Iredell, or Stanly counties make sure to contact Wright Well & Pump!
