Why Homeowners Should Invest in Water Well Preventive Maintenance
Routine maintenance and inspection of your water well can help protect water quality, ensure your well is operating properly, prolong the useful life of the well system, and protect your investment. The greatest of all these is the protection of your health, as water quality issues can have adverse health impacts without any detectable indicators. Preventive maintenance is not about fixing problems. Its focus is on preventing those problems from ever happening in the first place. It includes activities such as cleaning, adjustments, repairs, and parts replacement. Each of these activities is performed in order to keep the equipment running in top condition and to prevent downtime and reactive fixes.
Small problems can often be identified by performing maintenance before they become costly, inconvenient situations. This is similar to performing routine maintenance on a motor vehicle. If you have the oil changed at specified intervals, the engine will operate reliably much longer than if you do not. Do not become stranded without water over the relatively small cost of an annual inspection—the cost of a repair call could be much higher. At a minimum, wells should be evaluated annually by a licensed water well professional. In this post, we will discover how preventive maintenance will save you money, time, and stress.
What can a homeowner do to lower costs and reduce downtime? Preventive maintenance. Preventive maintenance is often still viewed by many homeowners as an unnecessary expenditure that is a waste of time and resources. In most cases, this is far from the truth and can prove to be a very costly mistake to make. Many homeowners tend to focus solely on the immediate issues that come up—repairing or replacing parts when something goes wrong in their well system and reacting to urgent matters. While this form of reactive maintenance is necessary for certain situations, transitioning to preventive maintenance is a strategy that will save money, as well as help your water well system to run more smoothly. The transition from reactive to preventive maintenance can be a smooth transition with C&J Well Co. Reactive maintenance is incredibly expensive. When something breaks unexpectedly, you have the costs of a maintenance crew (which can include overtime pay), the cost of the extra time it takes to diagnose the problem, and the cost of the parts. Preventive maintenance can dramatically reduce the risk of these costs. Using preventive maintenance, our crew will perform routine checks and planned maintenance at convenient times, steps that help you avoid large and expensive fixes down the road. Doing things on your schedule and not ours is always better to keep emergency costs down.
Doing preventive maintenance on your schedule can prevent emergency reactions that make you miss work or other important events. You can schedule a well cleanout or well system inspection at your convenience and not be at the mercy of a last-minute emergency appointment. A water well inspection or cleanout usually takes less time than waiting to diagnose and fix an emergency situation with your well equipment—especially if something fails on a weekend. Going days without water due to malfunctioning equipment can seem like an eternity—it’s better to plan ahead.
Waking up in the morning and realizing you don’t have water coming out of the faucet or showerhead can be maddening—your plans for the day just took an annoying turn. Now you have to find a well service contractor by searching the internet or yellow pages, reading reviews, etc. This can be a hassle and takes additional time.
In addition to reducing downtime and expensive fixes, preventive water well maintenance will also increase the life of your equipment. When everything is up to date and working properly, you will maximize the lifespan of your well system, helping you get the most out of your investment. When preventive maintenance is properly implemented, your water well equipment is routinely maintained so it can run in an optimal condition at all times. When equipment runs more efficiently, it doesn’t have to use as much energy and resources. This means cost savings as well as gives you peace of mind.
