Well System Q&A
Most frequent questions and answers
Yes. Residential & Commercial wells are considered “private wells” meaning no governmental agency is testing your water. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends annual well testing.
Feel free to call us at (269) 751-2143 and we can do some troubleshooting over the phone. Our first suggestion will be to check to see if you have tripped a circuit breaker which powers the pump.
Commonly though, no water means you have an issue with one component of your well system or the season. Over watering during late summer can eventually draw down the water table to a level below your pump. You may be able to limit use for a few days.
Routine inspections & maintenance will help to ensure your well system is operating efficiently and ensure you will get the most out of your investment in a private well. Our team performs a number of well inspections each year and here are some of the things we do:
Pump Performance (grounding, line voltage, amp loads, etc)
Water Testing – testing for bacteria, nitrates, and other local concerns. Additional tests for iron, water hardness, manganese, sulfides, and other water attributes which cause staining, odors, or a cloudy appearance.
Pressure Tanks – ensure the pressure is at the appropriate level and your pump & tank are operating efficiently.
Wells are not complicated in their setup but do require proper planning & maintenance to ensure you get quality water.
In short, a well is drilled to the proper depth (based on your area) and a submersible pump is lowered into your ground water. This electric pumps brings water to the surface and works alongside your pressure tank to maintain your water flow. The major components are listed here:
Ground Water Aquifer – simply the water source for your private well.
Well Screens – protect your pump from rocks & other debris in your water source (not all wells require screens)
Well Casing – protects the structure of your well & acts as a permanent pathway for your ground water to the surface
Pressure Tank – controls the pressure of water coming into your home
