TIPS FOR MAINTAINING YOUR WELL
Protect Your Well & Protect Your Water
1. LOW IMPACT AREAS WITHIN 50 FT
* Outdoor furniture and play area
* Recreation Area
2. MEDIUM IMPACT ACTIVITIES 50 - 100 ft. * *Garage
* City sewer lines
3. HIGH IMPACT ACTIVITIES 100-150 ft.
* Chemical storage
* Animal enclosures
* Manure/compost piles
* Machine/auto repair
* Septic system
Protect your well, and protect your water:
* Only low-impact facilities, such as a house, outdoor play area, or outdoor furniture should be located within 50 feet of the well. Do not mix or store any material that might contaminate your water supply within 50 feet of your well. Medium and high impact activities should only occur at safe distances. read more
Beautiful Filtered Water on Tap
Water Ultrafiltration is a membrane filtration process which uses standard home water pressure to push water through its semi-permeable membrane. Suspended particles and materials of high molecular weight are unable to pass through the 0.02 micron UF Ultrafiltration membrane, allowing only fresh clean water and dissolved minerals to pass through. By using a hollow fiber membrane, under sink UF drinking water systems are able to filter suspended particles and other potential water contaminates down to 0.02 microns. That is approximately 5,000 times smaller than a human hair.

1. UF drinking water systems do not require a water holding/storage tank. This helps to maximize the space under your sink.
2. No electricity no problem. Ultrafiltration systems do not require any electricity to operate.
3. Unlike reverse osmosis systems, Ultrafiltration does not produce any waste water.
4. UF systems operate on normal and low household water pressure without the use of an additional pump.
5. Ultrafiltration water filtering does not alter waters ph levels and keeps

A frequently asked question is "How can I increase our water pressure?"
Pressure is commonly measured in PSI (Pounds per square inch) or KPa (Kilo Pascals) as noted on your pressure gauge on your water pressure tank. It's a relative term as people either think they have enough or too little for their daily activities. People rarely check the gauge on the tank. Most people complain because they have too little pressure. Its seems low when they run a tap or shower and its worse when they run two taps! Most water systems are set up to run at a range between 40-60 psi. That is, the pump starts at 40 psi and shuts off when it reaches 60 psi. A twenty pound spread is pretty standard. Having said all this, if Your pressure seems low it might be as simple as adjusting your pressure switch. This should be done by an experienced pump technician as it has there are exposed electrical components under the cover. If adjusting the switch does not help, the low pressure may be related to a plumbing issue. Small feed lines to the house and hot water tank can result in low pressure especially when more than one tap is used. Contact our service department to discuss or arrange an inspection of your water system if you have low water pressure.
Our popular 20 Point Inspection program, is a flat rate service that will identify this and any other issues with your water system.
