The age of your well will determine the performance and flow rate of your water (which refers to the speed and efficiency at which water is pumped). To ensure that your well functions optimally and provides enough safe drinking water, you will need to invest in regular well maintenance and water well rehabilitation.
- Once a year, your well water should be tested for both E. coli bacteria as well as total coliform bacteria.
- Keep an eye on your well and the surrounding area. If you notice any weird odors, a funny taste in your drinking water or obvious stains, then it is recommended that you conduct further tests or contract a water professional to do so for you.
- If there are any signs of well damage to your well or the surrounding well, then your drinking water could be exposed to harmful debris and bacteria. So, if you notice obvious signs of damage, then it should be professionally inspected.
A water consultant will be able to provide you with water quality test reports. This, along with other relevant documentation (such as past inspection reports and water well completion logs), should be kept. Many times, the work performed will be under warranty. Therefore, hold onto the reports and invoices – it can save you a lot of money in the long run.
