Rodger Craig recommends a well inspection and a flow test. These tests will determine if the well and components are sized appropriately for the property and in good condition. A home inspector’s yield test is not sufficient to determine this information. Our flow test will provide with an accurate assessment of gallons per minute (GPM) and if it meet's your family's needs.
Rodger Craig recommends having your well water tested yearly, along with your other well water system components.
When the well pump is moved from the well, you may experience sediment, air, and discolored water. In most cases this will dissipate within 24 hours. Depending on the repair, this could take a few days to clear up. Rodger Craig will let you know what to look for. Call us if you have concerns about the well pump or water during this time.
Your well may need chlorination if bacteria is present or a "rotten-egg" smell is present. This is done by introducing two types of chlorine into the well then running the treated water through the entire home's water system. This is to ensure chlorine in present at every tap and bacteria is eliminated. When having an EPA chlorination performed be prepared forgo use of the water (other than toilets) for 24 hours.. Chlorine will be present at lower levels after 4-7 days.
Your best defense against costly repairs and the stress of water outages is a properly maintained well water system. Your water system consists of many components that may deteriorate with time. One small issue can lead to damage or even early failure of the expensive well pump. Your best defense is service performed by one our well water system repair professional.
