We often take our water wells for granted until something goes wrong. After all, it’s only natural to expect water to come out when you turn on the faucet! But over time, even the best well pump can run into problems. There’s good news, though: There are things you can do to maintain your well water system and keep it working efficiently. Follow these maintenance tips from Pinckney Well Drilling and Geothermal for your well in the Bluffton and Beaufort, SC area. By taking our advice, you’ll hopefully avoid having to call for well repair services.

  1. Chlorine treatments – Just like with pools, chlorine helps wipe out harmful bacteria and minerals that can get into your well water. A licensed water well drilling service can apply these treatments to your well safely.
  2. Monitor the quantity of water – Keep an eye on how much water flows when you turn on your faucets or shower heads. If you see a fluctuation in the water pressure, it’s better to go ahead and call us to check it out.
  3. Schedule regular testing – Planning a test of your well water on a regular basis can help ensure that your well pump is running properly and that the water in your well is clean. Taking the time to do this will save you money and stress in the long run.

Of course, even the most cautious well owner can’t avoid every repair. And sometimes, things happen to your well that will be totally beyond your control.
