4 Tips To Help Decide The Right Equipment When Drilling A New Water Well

When my husband and I purchased our first home, the process was stressful, but we settled on one we liked enough to live in temporarily until we expanded our family. When moving time arrived, we both dreaded the expected stress. We ended up using a different real estate agent than we did the first time, and we made a great decision, because she had a lot of home remodeling knowledge! We were adamant on finally finding our "perfect" home this time. When she showed us homes that lacked features we desired that we would have "nixed" before, she let us know if the feature could be added, and usually it could! We are now in our new home that we had a few small renovations performed on after we bought it, and we love it! I want to help others by sharing some remodeling tips I learned on a blog!

4 Tips To Help Decide The Right Equipment When Drilling A New Water Well

Choosing the right type of equipment for a water well is important when you rely on your well for running water. There are many choices of equipment depending on the conditions and needs of your home, such as submersible pumps, water softeners, filtration, and complete well-water purification systems. Here are some tips to help you choose the right equipment for the needs of your home:

1. Choosing the Right Pump When You Have a New Well Drilled

When drilling a water well, there are several types of pumps that you have to choose from. Aboveground pumps are installed on the surface and are easy to maintain, but they are also exposed to the elements. Submersible pumps are installed inside your well casing and will be protected from weather, like freezing temperatures during the coldest months of the year. The downside to the submersible pump is that it is going to need to be pulled from the well casing when repairs are needed, but it should need repairs or maintenance less often since it is protected by the casing.

2. Dealing with Hard Water Problems and Installing Water Softener Systems

The mineral content in water supplies can be a problem for appliances, mechanical systems, and your health. This mineral content is often referred to as hard water because of the hard, white calcium residue that is left behind in many areas. If you live in an area with problems with hard water, having a simple water softener system installed will help remove these mineral deposits from the water used in your household plumbing.

3. Improved Water Quality with the Installation of Filtration Systems

There are many different minerals and foreign particles that can be found in natural groundwater supplies. Often, these are things that you do not want to have in your drinking water. Today, there are many options for household water filtration systems that can be installed for faucets or for the plumbing in your entire home.

4. Complete Water-Well Purification Systems for Areas with Poor Ground Water Quality

There are some areas where the minerals and elements found in groundwater create problems with water wells. These types of wells need special equipment that completely purifies the water before it is delivered to household plumbing systems. If you live in an area that has a natural aquifer, it is likely that you are going to need a complete well system for purifying water that you use in your home.

These are some tips to help choose the well equipment that is right for your needs. If you need help with water well drilling, maintenance or the installation of equipment, contact a water well service, like Wells Water Well Drilling & Repair, and talk to them about your potable water needs.
