If you are using a private or shared well as your water source then you know that taking care of the water and the system itself is important for the quality of the water that you get out. Well water is the alternative to the city water that many people are a part of. The well water system has lots of work and maintenance that should be done to be sure that you get great quality water.
AAA Water Team has outlined a list of ways that our maintenance plan can help keep the water quality good in your well water system.
Check the Water Purity Levels: The water that is in the well needs to be suitable for drinking and use in your home. The water needs to be checked often to ensure that the water that is being circulated in the well continues to be at a level that is acceptable for drinking. This can be done by testing the water for impurities and matter that runs off from nearby mountains and gets into the water. Having a professional water team come out and take care of testing and correcting any imbalance in the water can help you save time and you can rest easy that you are getting pure and healthy water.
Check the Well Water Filters: All of the water that is in the well goes through a filter system to ensure that any impurities are kept out of the water that you will be drinking. You can also have a whole home water filtration system installed in the home to help to filter the water in the home and at the well. This offers two times the protection but the filters need to be replaced often so that they are not getting built up with sediment that can slowly get in the water. A professional water company can come out and change the filters on a schedule and get a water filtration system installed as well.
Sanitize the Well Water: This is a must since there are times that well water can seem to taste and even smell weird. The smell can be from bacteria that has started to grow on the tank and in the water. Another common smell of that of sulfur that is better known as the smell of eggs. If the water is starting to smell bad you want to be sure that the water is treated right away since that same smell can radiate throughout your home.
