Preventative Yearly Maintenance
Joseph H. Huemann & Sons, Inc
Does your water have an odor? Does your water have an unusual taste? Is it cloudy? Does it leave a scaly residue on your appliances? Is it hard to lather your soap?
Groundwater is the source of 50% of the drinking water in the US and is used at a rate of 90 billion gallons per day. Most of the crops in the US are irrigated with groundwater also.
Ground water may contain some natural impurities or contaminants, even with no human activity or pollution. Natural contaminants can come from many conditions in the watershed or in the ground. Water moving through underground rocks and soils may pick up magnesium, calcium and chlorides. Some ground water naturally contains dissolved elements such as arsenic, boron, selenium, or radon, a gas formed by the natural breakdown of radioactive uranium in soil. Whether these natural contaminants are health problems depends on the amount of the substance present. Proper well construction and continued maintenance are keys to the safety of your ground water supply.
Preventative Maintenance is Key! Many homeowners tend to forget the value of good maintenance until problems reach crisis levels. That can be expensive. It’s better to maintain your well, find problems early, and correct them to protect your well’s performance. It’sd important to keep up-to-date records of well installation and repairs plus pumping and water tests. Such records can help identify changes and possible problems with your water system.
State and local health departments suggest testing your water annually for bacteria and nitrates that might be of concern in your geographical area. Joseph H. Huemann & Sons Well Drilling, Pump Sales and Service performs groundwater sampling, groundwater testing, and chlorination.
