April showers are falling and May flowers are growing – two big signs that spring is definitely here! But we bet there’s one important area in your home that hasn’t made it on your spring cleaning list this year: your home’s water well. After another tough Indiana winter, it could certainly use some TLC.
DIY Water Well Maintenance for Homeowners
To keep your well running efficiently and in the best condition possible, there are a few simple things you can do on your own.
- Know your well’s history.
Hang on to your annual inspection reports, maintenance & repair invoices, and all of your water quality testing results.
- Recognize well cover damage.
Check the cap and top of your water well casing to make sure things seal up properly and that no visible damage is apparent.
- Prevent contamination of your home’s well water
Keep chemicals, hazardous materials, and pet and livestock enclosures from breaching a safe zone of at least 50 feet in every direction from your well’s cap.
