Getting water from your own well can be a very nice alternative to a municipal water supply, but it does come with some responsibilities for you as a homeowner. You want to make sure that the water that you and your family drink is good for your health and not doing any harm. So what do you need to do?
First, you should make sure that you protect your well. Any chemicals that are spilled on the ground around the area where the well is located could seep into the water. Don’t allow anyone to park on top of the well, and keep chemicals away from the area altogether.
You also might need some filters to remove minerals and contaminants from the water. To know what is in the water you get out of the well, it needs to be tested in a lab. This will give you an idea of what needs to be done to the water before it can be used.
