Well System Repair Service
Nearly half of all Americans -- forty seven percent of them -- rely on groundwater for their drinking water supply, and a large portion of that figure are people like yourself who rely on a well system for your potable water. There are a number of different elements that make up the system, and we want to give you a basic overview of them to help your understanding of it, and so you can be aware of when you may need well system repair.
Well casings -- these are the tubular structures that go into the drilled well to actually hold the opening in position. The casing works with the grout to keep the groundwater underground, and disallow any foreign matter from mixing with the water. Usually the casings are made from stainless steel, PVC, or carbon steel. Each material has its own plusses and downfalls, but usually location is what stipulates which kind of material our plumbers can use during well system repair or installation.
Well caps -- these go on top of the well casing to keep out debris, small animals and insects. As your plumbing contractor we generally install well caps that are made out of thermoplastic or aluminum, and come with a screen inside to help equalize the pressure when pumping the well.
Well screens -- these are essentially filters that keep sediment, gravel and the like from entering the well. These screens get attached to the bottom of the well casings and allow water to move through the well, while keeping out most particles like sand.
There are a few options for screens when our plumbers are performing well system repairs; we can go with continuous slot, slotted pipe or perforated pipe. Perforated is where the casing has holes drilled into the pipe, and isn’t ideal for areas with lots of sand or gravel due to the wide openings. The other two types are frequently preferred because they have less open areas. Continuous slot are made of wire or plastic that are wrapped around a series of rods. Slotted screens are machine-cut slots in plastic or steel casing.
Pitless adapters -- mechanisms that give your well a sanitary seal that goes between the well casing and the water line that runs to your home. The pitless adapter is also frostproof and is what keeps your water supply safe during winter. When our plumbers find the frost line around your well, we’ll connect the adapter to the well casing below that point so that water will go horizontally at that point and avoid freezing.
