Most of us don't spend a lot of time thinking about the well outside in the yard. However, the next time we turn a faucet on in the kitchen, bathroom or utility room and nothing happens - that 'utterly' reliable flow of water fails to appear from the spout, or it arrives as a trickle - our well and pump will spring to the forefront of our consciousness. These events are seldom appreciated.
Of course, with a pinch of forethought and a touch of maintenance, these unwelcome occurrences can be avoided. At the very least, the likelihood of such an event is dramatically diminished.
Maintenance really is the key: Not only will maintenance ensure that your home has water on demand, as expected, it will also help to save on costly repairs generally associated with fixing problems with the water supply - problems with the pump, well and/or water. Solid water, well and pump maintenance is the low cost and, generally, painless alternative to potentially catastrophic problems with your homes water, well and pump system.
Why is water, well and pump maintenance so critical? As with anything mechanical, wear and failure are always a possibility. However, a well maintained pump and tank can last 15 years or more, in some cases. Other than normal wear faced by all things mechanical, a well has its own particular enemy - iron bacteria. Iron bacteria growth occurs normally in a well. Without maintenance, it takes control and smothers your equipment until you begin to notice on the other end of the water system - where the water exits the faucet.
