Water Well Treatments
To put it simply, a water well pump is used to extract water from your well. If you get your water from a well on your property, then you know just how important your pump is. Even though these systems are relatively small and simple, they are vital in maintaining a healthy water quality. To keep your well water safe and up to code, call Stewart Plumbing today to schedule an inspection, repair, or installation.
Like most systems working in your home, your well water system needs to be maintained. During an inspection, a professional will be able to locate any problems or areas of concern that could increase the chances for a malfunction in the future. Routine maintenance also helps to extend the lifespan of your equipment. Any maintenance service done by one of our professionals includes:
- Full system check to rule out any faults or areas of concern.
- Air charge to maintain pressure balance.
- Pressure check to make sure that air charge was successful.
- Pressure switch check to make sure that your well pump will start and stop pumping when necessary.
- Performance check to test that pressure and switches work together accurately.
- Mechanical equipment inspection to make sure that your well pump is functioning properly on a regular, consistent basis.
- Water quality inspection to be certain that your home’s water us up to code and meets the local standards.
To keep your well pump working properly, it should have professional maintenance at least once a year. Call Stewart Plumbing today to schedule an inspection today.
When small problems go unnoticed, they can escalate very quickly. Routine professional maintenance can prevent this, but complications can never be completely ruled out. Between services, there are some red flags to watch out for that may be signaling you need repair or replacement. Here are some signs that you have a problem with your well pump:
- Dirty water. This is typically noticeable right away. Any discoloration, strange taste, or foul odor should be addressed immediately. Murkiness may be an issue as well.
- Strange noises. Your well pump should never make any loud or strange noises. If you notice any, its best to call a professional for inspection.
- Trapped air. If you notice that air is spitting out from the faucets in your home, you may have a leak or fault somewhere along your system.
- High electric bills. An increase in your electric bill typically means that something is working inefficiently. If your well pump is damaged or outdated, it may require more electricity to function.
It’s important to have your well pump repaired at the first sign of a problem. Fixes early on can save you from more costly repairs down the line.
