Living in a home with a water well system means you have control of your own water, but this type of system can have its own complications. If you are having issues with water pressure and water quality, you want to call a plumbing and water well contractor that specializes in the installation and maintenance of water well systems.

There are many components and problems that can arise when the system starts to age, and it is important to get problems looked at before they turn into large complications. Here are some of the things to expect with the inspection.

Routine Component Replacement

The water well system will have many internal components, and over time these may just need replaced or repaired. Some of the areas this could be true for incudes:

  • Pressure switches and gauges
  • Hose faucet
  • Gate or ball valves
  • Jet pump

An inspection will show what parts are faulty and need immediately replacement, and then they will give you an estimate of the overall condition of your water well tank. If the tank is aging, it may be time for replacement.

Flushing out the unit and giving it a tune-up may help with the water problems you're having and can help to remove debris build up in the tank. Ask what the potential lifespan is for the tank to see if it should be replaced.

Overall System Replacement

If the system is old, rusting, and corroding or the components are just failing, it may be time to replace your water well pump. When choosing a new option, be sure to ask the water well pump installation professional for an affordable unit with these features:

  • Jet pump feature
  • Energy efficient
  • Manufacturer warranty
  • High quality water purification option

You want to get a unit that is going to deliver the water pressure you need, along with a great filtration system. Improved water pressure can reduce water use and water waste in the home.

If you are having issues where you can't get good pressure to take a shower, and you water tastes bad when you are drinking out of the tap, it's time to get someone to the home to look at your water well pump. It could be failing and putting grime and debris or hard minerals into the water. Get an estimate and then take the time to have the work done to invest in the maintained of your well and your home.
