Summer is drawing to a close and fall is right around the corner. That means it’s time for homeowners to make sure everything is in good working condition before colder weather arrives. This is especially true for your well. Well maintenance varies from season to season. Pinckney Well Drilling wants you to understand how you can maintain this essential part of your home during this time of the year. Here are three tips from our well service on how you can better manage your well this fall.

  1. Take care of indoor water issues – Don’t wait any longer to repair dripping faucets or leaking toilets. These leaks waste well water, which can be an issue in times of drought. At the same time, don’t leave the water running. Turn the faucet off when brushing your teeth, washing your face, or washing dishes. Fall tends to be dry and you want to maintain an adequate supply of water at all times.
  2. Handle outdoor issues, too – Get your well pump inspected now rather than later. You don’t want to face a breakdown in the middle of a cold snap. Find out how things are working and replace your well pump if necessary. Clean up leaves around your property to keep your water as pure as possible.
  3. Be smart when using household appliances – When it comes to appliances like your dishwasher and washing machine, only run them when they’re fully loaded. You’d be surprised at how much water this can save!

Even though these actions are small, they can really help your well run at peak efficiency. If you have any questions or need well service this fall, call Pinckney Well Drilling.
