Preventative Well Maintenance for This Spring. About 95% of today’s rural homeowners have wells, which are designed to provide clean, safe water. However, the wells should be routinely examined in order to prevent mechanical breakdowns, disease from contamination, and to help ensure many years of service. Even small problems with the well water system can turn into major repairs if neglected over time. But don’t fret. All About Plumbing and Septic is the most trusted company in the greater Asheville/Hendersonville, NC area for well pump inspections and installations. We’re here to serve you!
There are some things you can do that will help maintain your well, such as visually inspecting the well head. In most cases this means taking off the artificial rock cover and removing winter insulation to check for water leaks. If you see any, give us a call because chances are it’s an issue that needs to be professionally addressed. If all is well, put down some mouse and ant bait to keep the critters out of your well head this summer. Don’t forget to return the insulation and well cover.
Spring rain means surface water could stagnate around your well. Leaves and other organic matter will be decomposing there. Keeping the well head area sloped to clear it of sitting water is important, but an inspection of the casing by one of our qualified technicians will help ensure your well is free of leaks that can lead to contaminated water. All About Plumbing and Septic has the dedicated, experienced staff to handle this inspection for you.
From running the risk of electric shock, to dropping tools down the well and unintentional contamination of the water supply, a well inspection really isn’t a DIY project. Our knowledgeable staff can professionally assess your well to make sure it’s working properly. Among many other things, this includes testing the pump’s performance, one of the main components of the water system. Should the water pump be failing, rest assured we can handle it for you.
