TIPS FOR MAINTAINING YOUR WELL  

Well Inspection Report Well Head Picture

 

There are a lot of things happening in the background when you open up your faucet: electrical points engage, mechanical springs sense fluctuations in pressure, air bladders push the water towards the opened outlet, check valves open and close.  All of these things and more have to work reliably every time you use water.But as long as water keeps coming out of the faucet, we don't even think about it until we turn on the shower and nothing comes out.

By this time, a combination of culprits has likely conspired to cause an emergency interruption in water delivery.  If only there was some sort of "check up" for water well systems...Well, there is Our Well Inspection Service. Our service technicians can check out the pieces of your water system and provide the preventative TLC to keep your water flowing. Included in the report are the following:  

  • Air pressure in pressure tank.
  • Pressure switch.  
  • Pump amperage.
  • Electrical resistance in the motor.
  • Loose connections.
  • Insulation damage.
  • Visual inspection of well head and well cap. 
  • Electrical inspection.  
  • Piping inspection.
  • Water Treatment filter inspection.
  • Chemical water sample analysis.
  • Well log ( if available)   

 A concise, clear, written report will be delivered to you following the checkup that explains the results.   

As an additional service we can also perform  a flow test and static level report . 

 

 



WATER TREATMENT

 

Bacteria: PRIMARY HEALTH CONCERN 
What are Total, Fecal and E. coli bacteria? 
Coliform bBACTERIA CELLacteria are described and grouped, based on their common origin or characteristics, as either Total or Fecal Coliform. The Total group includes Fecal Coliform bacteria such as Escherichia coli (E .coli), as well as other types of Coliform bacteria that are naturally found in the soil. Fecal Coliform bacteria exist in the intestines of warm blooded animals and humans, and are found in bodily waste, animal droppings, and naturally in soil. Most of the Fecal Coliform in fecal material (feces) is comprised of E. coli, and the serotype E. coli 0157:H7 is known to cause serious human illness. 
If the water is positive for total coliform or e. coli, the primary recommendation would be to have your well inspected by a professional and to conduct a shock disinfection of the well and distribution system.  Following the disinfection and purging of the well, the water should be retested. Until the system can be inspected, disinfected, and retested, it would be 
advisable to not use your water for consumption or bathing, if you have open wounds or sores. If the water must be used for consumption, it would be
advisable to boil your water for at least 5 minutes. If the post-treatment water test is positive for bacterial contamination, it may be necessary to make
modifications to the well, install a sanitary well cap, and install a disinfection system. To determine the best course of action it would be advisable to hire a
certified water treatment or licensed well driller to evaluate your system.

UV TREATMENT IS AN EXCELLENT WAY TO TREAT BACTERIA.  
Although 100% destruction of microorganisms cannot be guaranteed, it is possible to achieve 99.99% reduction in certain applications and with proper maintenance.

There appears to be dirt in my water. What could it be and how do I get rid of it?  

TURBIDITY AND SEDIMENT
 
Turbidity (fine particles) and sediment (coarse particles) may be caused by sand, scale, rust, organic matter, or clay. In addition to an objectionable, cloudy appearance, these substances may cause plugged piping or fouled water treatment equipment. Turbidity does not settle out readily, but remains suspended for several hours. It is normally present in pond, lake, or river water supplies. Turbidity levels should be less than 5 NTU's (turbidity units) for clear, acceptable water. Sediment/turbidity filters are available to handle such problems and bring water into usable ranges. Ordinary filtration does not generally remove turbidity, but by obtaining an individual water analysis, the best method of treatment may be determined.

One of our certified water specialists will be glad to help you with a solution to this problem and can be reached at
