When you have your own well on your property, it is extremely important that you make sure it is well-maintained and in good working order. There are several reasons you do not want to put off getting your well repaired, and you should be getting inspections each year.
Your Family’s Health
Remember that the maintenance and upkeep of your well is directly related to your family’s health. If you do not have annual inspections of your well, your family could easily become ill. Water from the earth is pure and generally safe, but if you have problems with your well bacteria, rust, or other chemicals or substances could get into your water.
Repairs are More Costly Long Term
If you put off repairs of your well, it will cost you much more money in the long run. Often issues with wells begin as small problems that can be easily repaired. If the problem is caught and repaired early, you will spend much less money on maintenance of your well. On the other hand, if you put off repairs or don’t get an inspection to discover issues, you could spend quite a lot on well repairs, including the potential for needing to dig a new well.
If you have issues with your well, your water pressure in your home will suffer. Not having sufficient water pressure could make it very difficult to shower, take baths, wash dishes, or do laundry. You may find yourself spending more money compensating for these inconveniences than you would spend on the repair itself.
