Water Well Inspections And Repairs

2 Minutes Posted on:

A water well contractor can be hired to inspect your well and its water supply. Annual testing will indicate if there are any performance issues. Additionally, bacteria, scaly residue, and other foreign materials that could compromise the quality of the water will be identified and treated.

The Testing Of Equipment

If you purchased a residence that already had a well on its property or if your well is relatively old, the pump and other internal well components may not be working as well as they should. Worn materials could compromise the amount of water pressure that the pump produces.

Additionally, parts that have been used to anchor the pump or interior well materials may be damaged or need to be replaced. The initial inspection will indicate if any repair work is needed. A contractor can order materials that are essential for the type of well that you own and can have them installed. 

The Testing Of Water

The oversaturation of the land that surrounds your well or an improper fitting well lid could result in contaminants being introduced into your water supply. There are many water testing and treatment products on the market, but you may not be aware of how to use them. A water well contractor will furnish their own testing equipment. The testing equipment will determine if particular contaminants are present in the water.

Some testing items will produce instant results. Other testing models may require that a sample of water is collected and sent to a lab for further analysis. Upon determining if there are any foreign materials in the well water, a contractor will outline some treatment procedures. Purification tablets can be used to treat water. The flushing of a well can also remove polluted water from a well.

If there is the risk of water becoming further contaminated, the addition of a residential purification system can be helpful. There are many purification models on the market, ranging from small under-sink models to large freestanding models that can be hooked up to every faucet in a home.

Once your water well system and its water supply have been deemed safe to use, your contractor may schedule a subsequent appointment. Each year, your well and the water supply should be tested. The annual inspections can lengthen the amount of time that your well will be useable and will ward off large well or water issues that could be costly or dangerous.
