Guelph plumbers take pride in our premium well pump services because we know that is where the water cycle to your home begins. Without a well pump you’re not going to have running water and there is nothing worse than running out of water in the middle of a nice hot shower (especially for us Canadians).
If you live in town this shouldn’t be a concern to you because you will be connected to the town water system. But if you live in the country you know you get your water supply a totally different way. Sometimes this can be good as water wells will give you amazing, high quality drinkable water, Some of the best water I’ve ever had has come from a country well system. Depending on how far you have to drill down to find the water table the quality of water will vary. Sometimes it can be hard or have a lot of sulpher but there is ways to treat these common issues.
Well systems consist of a well casing that gets drilled down to the water table. The depth one has to drill down can vary which will drastically increase or decrease the cost of getting a well. There will be a pipe installed called a well casing that the water will be pumped up from. At the top of the casing there will be a well seal which is what you will see from the outside at ground level. Usually a jet pump will pull the water from up from the ground into a storage tank. The jet pump is where issues can occur and you should call https://www.guelphplumbingcompany.com for assistance if you happen to run out of water.
There are common issues that can occur with a well, your water could get contaminated or the system could get clogged. A few common problems consist of: hard water, methane gas inside a well which is why you should never build a home over a well, bacteria contaminating the water from a septic tank but deep wells will be less likely get contaminated, fertilizers and pesticides from agricultural land seeping into the water table.
Some of these issues can be a big concern to the quality of water which is why you should have it tested. You can send your water away to a lab to check for bacertia and chemicals. There are way to nutrualize or decontaminate the water as it comes into your home but it may be wise to drill a deeper well if necessary.
