Water Well Maintenance - Homeowner's Checklist

Homeowner's Checklist
A Homeowner's Checklist from your Water Well Professional
Properly constructed private water supply systems require little routine maintenance.
These simple steps will help protect your system and investment:
  • Always use licensed or certified water well drillers and pump installers when a well is constructed, a pump is installed, or the system is serviced.
  • An annual well maintenance check, including a bacterial test, is recommended. Drinking water should be checked any time there is a change in taste, odor or appearance, or when the well system is serviced.
  • Keep hazardous chemicals, such as paint, fertilizer, pesticides, and motor oil far away from your well.
  • Periodically check the well cover or well cap on top of the casing (well) to ensure it is in good repair.
  • Always maintain proper separation between your well and buildings, waste systems or chemical storage facilities. Your professional contractor knows the rules.
  • Don't allow back-siphonage. When mixing pesticides, fertilizers, or other chemicals, don't put the hose inside the tank or container.
  • When landscaping, keep the top of your well at least one foot above the ground. Slope the ground away from your well for proper drainage.
  • Take care in working or mowing around your well. A damaged casing could jeopardize the sanitary protection of your well. Don't pile snow, leaves, or other materials around your well.
  • Keep your well records in a safe place. These include the construction report, as well as annual water well system maintenance and water testing results.
  • Be aware of changes in your well, the area around your well, or the water it provides.
  • When your well has come to the end of its serviceable life (usually 20+ years), have a qualified water well contractor decommission it after constructing your new system.

Thanks for that tip about checking the well's cover periodically. Checking it often means that you'll catch issues before they grow into problems. Do you have any more tips on know when to replace a well cover?

Thank you for sharing this list on how to maintain your water well in good condition. I hope all of the water well contractors also share this information with the client, but at least I don't remember much of it so good to have it here. I'm happy that I read this article before winter because I probably would have pushed all of the snow from the yard next to the well! Thanks again for sharing!
