My Well System Seems to Be Working Fine—Why Does It Need Maintenance?
Property owners who rely on wells to supply themselves with clean, healthy water often have a lot of questions about how to properly care for and maintain their wells. Unfortunately, problems with wells often arise unexpectedly, and it’s not always easy to figure out what’s causing the issues in the first place. If your well is in good working condition, you might assume it’s okay to skip well maintenance—but the reality is that well maintenance is essential no matter what condition your well is in.
Why it’s so important to invest in well maintenance
Many property owners attempt to reduce their costs by avoiding routine well maintenance, but this option is far more expensive and inconvenient in the long run. Here are a few reasons why It’s so important to invest in regular well maintenance:
- Problems may arise unexpectedly: One of the most important things to understand about wells is that there often isn’t a lot of warning before something goes wrong with a well’s performance. In some cases, a well goes from working as normal to failing completely in a matter of minutes. Without routine maintenance, there’s no way for property owners to identify issues before they cause performance problems. By investing in maintenance from a professional, property owners can avoid the stress of dealing with a sudden well problem.
- Gradual changes in performance may go unnoticed: It’s also important to keep in mind that well issues often occur very gradually over time. Many property owners don’t notice these gradual changes because they happen so slowly, but incremental changes to performance can really add up and create a situation that goes from merely annoying to catastrophic, seemingly in the blink of an eye.
- Maintenance affects efficiency: Another very important factor to consider when it comes to well maintenance is efficiency. A well that isn’t properly maintained is far more likely to have poor energy efficiency than one that is regularly maintained by a professional. Even if your well performance isn’t negatively affected by a lack of maintenance, efficiency is very likely to suffer, leading to increased expenses for well operation over time.
- Maintained wells last longer: Replacing a well prematurely can be a huge expense for property owners. While maintenance can be costly, it’s nowhere near as significant an expense as the cost of replacing a well years before it’s necessary. Wells that are maintained professionally on a routine basis can last years—or even decades—longer than wells that aren’t regularly maintained.
