Four Options For Well Pump Installation And Filtration Systems For Water Service To Your Home

Construction & Contractors Blog

If you live in a rural area, you may not have conventional water services available in your community. This mean that you will need to have a water well installed, which may be combined with a pump and filtration system to get the water to your home. There are many options for these things, which can be a submersible pump for a well near your home, or a well house if you could not have the well drilled near your home. Here are four options you have for the well pump and filtration system for your home:

1. Using Submersible Pumps For Wells Near Your Home

If you are able to have the well drilled near your home, you may be able to have a submersible pump installed. This is a pump that is installed inside the well casing, which will protect it from damage and the elements. The downside is that they will have to be removed to be repaired or replaced when something goes wrong. You may also have the well located further away from your home, which means that pipes and utilities need to be installed for the well. If the well is further away from your home, you may want to have different type of pump installed.

2. Well Houses And Buried Piping For Your Water Service

Well houses are an option for wells that need to be installed further away from your home due to septic tanks or other reasons. You will have to have utilities ran to the well, as well as pipes. This is why it may be better to have a above ground pump and well house. The pipes can be insulated and buried to protect them from the elements and freezing. If you do not want to have electricity going to the well house, there are also solar powered pumps available, which can be a good solution to avoid installing electricity to the well house.

3. Treating And Sanitizing Well Water For Potable Water

If the well you have for your home is for water service, it will need to be sanitized regularly. This is something that should be done when the well is drilled. You will also want to have the water quality checked regularly and sanitize the well after you use it. This can be done with well sanitizer products that you add to the well to kill any bacteria and other contaminants that can get into your well.

4. Different Options For The Filtration System For Your Home

Sanitizing your well will help to kill bacteria, but it may not remove things like heavy metals. This is why you may also want to have a filtration system installed for your home. With newer ionization water filtration systems, you will not only have a filtration system to remove heavy metals, but it will also be a second line of defense to keep things like bacteria out of your water supply. This will give you pure water to use in your home, and ensure that contaminants from the well do not get into the water your family uses.

These are some of the options you have for the well pump and filtration system you have installed for your home. If you need help with the installation of a well pump or filtration system, contact a well pump contractor (such as Mike's Pump and Well Service LLC) and ask them about some of these things.

All About Building a Home

Welcome to my website. I'm Albert Frost. Besides my dad, one of my biggest role models was my uncle Rick. He was a construction contractor who would let me come on his construction sites and also taught me everything he knew about building homes, including how to install hardwood flooring and add insulation. I always wanted to grow up to build houses like my uncle. I used to help my uncle with a lot of the grunt work needed to make a home a reality. But then I hurt my back playing football. Until I heal completely, I'm going to devote as much of my time as possible to teaching others about various construction topics I'm interested in.
