3 Water Well Maintenance Tips for High Water Quality, Shell Lake, Wisconsin

When the household water supply comes from a well, you can’t depend on the local municipality to ensure you have clean drinking water. Instead, you are responsible for improving and maintaining the water quality. How do you accomplish this? Here are a few tips from the well drilling team at DMB Drilling Co Inc in Shell Lake, WI, for proper water well maintenance.

Top 3 Water Well Maintenance Tasks

1. Cleanup

A dirty well can result in drinking water issues, even when the groundwater is perfectly clean. It can cause problems ranging from cloudy water and unusual smell to low pressure and debris buildup in the bottom of the well. You should have a professional clean a dirty well system as quickly as possible to prevent further contamination.

2. Annual Water Test

These inspections should always be performed by a licensed professional to check for any harmful bacteria or excessive mineral buildup in the well water. These tests could protect your family from serious medical problems.

3. Do Your Part

Maintaining high-quality well water is often dependent on certain tasks you do while caring for the property. Avoid using fertilizers or pesticides near the well. Also, don’t pile leaves or snow near the well when cleaning the yard. Be cautious when mowing the lawn to prevent accidentally damaging the system’s protective sanitary casing. These steps can go a long way in preventing contamination.

With the right water well maintenance, your family will continue to have clean drinking water in the home. Since 1995, DMB Drilling Co Inc has helped locals with both basic maintenance and emergency well repair. Their MSHA-certified staff will always make sure your well is in top shape.
