Well waters are not very common, especially in the urban areas, but they come with their share of incredible benefits.
Some of these benefits are:
- Lower costs
- Lower environmental effects
- The use of natural water filtration methods, leading to healthier water
However, all these benefits become insignificant when you cannot get clean water for your household usage.
This can always be due to different reasons, which also vary according to the visible signs. Some of these signs and their causes include:
- Scum in water
Typically, water with scales or scum indicates hard water containing minerals such as calcium and magnesium.
Besides having unclean water, the minerals could also cause clogging on showerheads, faucets, and pipes.
The leading cause could be that you don’t have a water treatment system or the one you have is not functioning correctly.
- Reddish-brown water
Three things often cause this. The first one is rust, which may be coming from rusty pipes or faucets.
Another one is iron which comes from rainwater or melting snow from iron-bearing soil or rock.
The last one is the water level has changed, or the pump has pulled up a little.
- Cloudy or unclear water
This is another common problem with well waters. When you notice your water is coming out murky, it means your pump could be taking in dirt or clay salts.
It could also mean your pipes are corroding, which is a result of poor plumbing and poor choice of material.
- Sandy water
If your water is coming out with sandy particles, then the problem is definitely with the pump. In such a case, it is said that the water is silting.
During installation, the pump sits about 10-20 feet above the lowest point of the well.
But, when the water level lowers, the pump will also move a little lower, hence pumping up even the sand at the bottom of the well.
As mentioned above, well water is a good choice, but only if it can guarantee clean water and still maintain the low costs. Unfortunately, these problems can cause health problems, as well as costly repairs. In case you experience any of them, you should contact a professional ASAP!
How do you avoid these problems?
Simple answer, invest in the best materials and skills. Working with an unqualified technician will only save you money during installation. However, you will spend more than you would have had you invested in a well-qualified expert in the long run.
