If you live far away from most major areas, having a well installed may be your best option to secure running water for your property. When looking to install a well, it’s important to find a reliable company that can handle the project to ensure the work is done correctly. However, it’s imperative that you take the time to learn as much about well systems as you can during the installation process. This article will take a look at some things homeowners can do to better understand well pump systems.
One of the most important things you can do when having a well installed is to write down all pertinent information. If you have a Sharpie on hand, this can be done on the control box for the pump or on the pump itself. Write the model number for the pump, the date of installation, and the dept the pump was set at. This ensures the information will not get lost as the years go by. Be sure to get the name of the company you used to install the well and the service technician who came to your home as well so you know who to contact should an issue arise.
