Having safe access to water is critical for homes and businesses that rely on private water wells. An annual inspection ensures the supply meets or exceeds local standards for drinking, cooking, and other uses. As the area’s premier provider of water well installations, Pittman Well Boring in Ellenboro, NC, has the professional experience to diagnose and repair faulty systems.
If you own a water well, the well drilling specialists offer the following inspection tips:
- Check The Well Cap: Inspect the well cap for any damage. It should have a tight fit and the screened air exchange vent must be free of bugs, cobwebs, and other debris. Examine the well caps at least once or twice a year.
- Examine Filters: Be sure to check filters and aerators annually to ensure insects have not infested the parts of your water well. If insects are present, call Pittman Well Boring to schedule a thorough cleaning of your entire system.
- Measure Well Cap Level: Soil located near the water well can shift as a result of rain, snow, and other weather conditions. To ensure the well cap is at the required levels, run a tape measure from the cap’s bottom to the ground. Check with your local authorities for the exact level requirements.
- Check Backflow Devices: Atmospheric backers and backflow valves must be periodically checked for proper installation and functioning. If either device is damaged, they must be replaced to keep contaminants from entering the water supply.
