Well System Maintenance: Keeping Your Water Flowing

Modern Day Well Water System

A well water system is a complex system that consists of various components that work together to bring water from the ground into your home. These components include the well pump, pressure switch, pressure tank, and other parts that keep the water flowing smoothly. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the importance of well system maintenance, how to keep your water flowing reliably and how our water treatment solutions can help.

Why is well system maintenance important?

  1. Preventing breakdowns: Regular maintenance can help identify and fix small problems before they turn into major breakdowns, saving you both time and money in the long run.
  2. Improving efficiency: A well system that is not running at its optimal efficiency can lead to higher energy bills and can shorten the lifespan of the components. Regular maintenance can help ensure that your well system is running at its best, saving you money on your energy bills.
  3. Ensuring safe water: Regular well system maintenance is also important for ensuring that the water you are getting is safe to drink. A well system that is not working properly can lead to contamination of the water supply.

What are the components of a well system?

  1. Well pump: There are several types of well pumps, including jet pumps, submersible pumps, and constant pressure systems. The type of well pump you have will determine the type of maintenance and repair it needs.
  2. Pressure switch: The pressure switch monitors the water pressure in your well system and controls the well pump. It’s important to keep the pressure switch in good working condition to ensure that the well pump is running at the correct pressure.
  3. Pressure tank: A pressure tank, also known as a bladder tank, stores water under pressure to provide a steady flow of water to your home. The pressure tank needs to be properly maintained to ensure that it’s working at its best.
  4. Other components: There are other components that make up a well system, such as the control box, pressure gauge, and check valve, that need to be checked and maintained to ensure that the system is running smoothly.

In addition to regular maintenance and repairs, well water systems can also benefit from water treatment solutions.
