Low Water Well Pressure?
Whether you’re new to well water or have been using it for years, low water pressure is something you may have to deal with some time. And fixing low water pressure is difficult because the cause isn’t always readily apparent. If you have low or no water pressure, your best bet is to call a professional. But in the meantime, here is something to consider. Many issues with well water pressure can be traced back to a clogged sediment filter. Also, leaks or clogs in pipes are common causes of low water pressure coming from your well. Your local professional plumber will better help you find the cause and offer a solution.
Does Well Water Need Chlorination?
Water in most municipal supply systems goes through a treatment process that disinfects the water with chlorine to remove harmful bacteria and contaminants. Most people think well water is naturally healthier, however, it too can contain harmful elements like coliform bacteria and other toxins.
So, if you want to ensure the safety of your well water, you should consider chlorinating the water yourself. However, well chlorination isn’t as simple as pouring chlorine down the well as some might have you believe. Too much chlorine can make you just as ill as contaminated water, which is why it’s essential you hire a trained professional to assist you with your well water chlorination. If you’re in need of a water well company, call Plumbing Nerds today and let us ensure your water is safe and fresh!
