Here in the hot summer climate of South Carolina, drought is a common occurrence. If severe enough, a drought can affect any aspect of your life that requires water. How often you water your lawn, how long your showers are, how you use water on your farmland – all of these things must change when drought advisories are issued. It even impacts your well. Trying to manage well water during a drought can be exhausting and frustrating. This is especially true if you run a farm, manage a golf course, or work in the landscaping business. The water well drilling experts at Pinckney Well Drilling and Geothermal understand your frustrations and want to help you. Here are some tips from our well drilling services company that you can use to manage your well water during the next dry spell:
- Routine testing – One of the best ways you can combat issues during a drought is to perform routine tests on your well. Our staff can take care of this for you, as well as schedule cleanings for your well to make sure it’s running at its best.
- Add more water storage – Droughts unfortunately mean your water usage will be restricted for an unknown period of time. That’s why having backup water storage systems is vital.
- Step up your pump system – Upgrading and maintaining your pumps can help your well perform better during droughts. Pumps with shoddy maintenance will decrease the rate at which you can retrieve water.
- Be prepared to take action – Unfortunately, residential wells may dry up if a drought is severe enough. In this case, you may need our well drilling services to tap into a new water source. If you have access to a municipal water system, that’s another option. We can help you decide what’s best for your home.
