How Do You Know if Your Water Well Needs Repair?

If you’re a home or business owner who has a private water well, you know they’re cost-effective. But are you aware of the risks that come along with wells? There are a variety of factors, not limited to the age of a well, that can result in low water quality, low water production, and contamination of the water that flows into your home. It’s important to keep an eye on your well and recognize the signs that it’s time to call in the professionals at Paramount Well Service. We have specialized in residential water well repair in Bucks County for more than 30 years, and our team has the tools and the talent necessary to accurately diagnose well problems and solve them effectively.

Know The Signs

While paying regular attention to the well outside of your home, be on the lookout for the following indicators that your well needs attention or repair:

  • There is less water than usual flowing from your faucets and shower heads.
  • The water has a sandy texture, or it appears cloudy.
  • The water has an unusual smell or taste.
  • The total well depth is lower overall than it usually is.

Damage You Can’t See

Wells can become damaged in a variety of ways, predominantly due to age and changes that occur with different chemicals inside of it. In any event, you should have your well inspected approximately every three years to ensure it’s working properly. Problems that can occur inside your well can include:

  • Mineral deposits have formed or become encrusted in the well.
  • The well has begun to pump sand along with the water.
  • Microorganisms have begun to grow inside the well, causing biofouling.
  • The well itself has become corroded.
