If you’re moving to Beaufort, Bluffton, or surrounding areas of the South Carolina Lowcountry, you may be living in a rural area for the first time. Along with the peace, quiet, and beauty that comes with living on the land comes something else: well water. While you may not have access to a municipal water supply like you’re used to, maintaining your own private well is generally worry-free. At Pinckney Well Drilling and Geothermal, we want you to feel confident in your well and the water it provides. Here’s a brief guide from our well drilling company on what you need to know if you’ve never had a well:

  1. General problems with wells are minimal – When most people think about well issues, they may immediately think of it running dry. However, most problems with wells are simple and easy fixes, such as well pump repairs.
  2. Well disinfection is a must – Testing your well water at least once a year is critical to your health. Bacteria can make its way into groundwater, so it’s best to get it checked out and get your well disinfected if needed. This is also where a whole home water filtration system can come in handy.
  3. Always work with professionals – Always work with a reputable well drilling company when it comes to installing, disinfecting, repairing, or performing general maintenance on your well. Trusting someone without the proper experience can put you at risk for contaminated water or could cause serious damage to your water well system.
