Living in the city means being connected to a public water system and taking for granted that when you turn on the faucet, you will have water coming out. However, living in a rural setting doesn’t come with this luxury and instead you have the awareness of being connected to a well system for water.
A well is a construction that is drilled deep into the ground until the groundwater is accessible. Once this water is located, the well is built around it and various equipment is installed to get the well water to the home. To maintain the flow of clean and fresh water to the home, both the well and the well equipment need to be in top working order at all times.

In many older homes a jet pump is installed in the basement and can come in two variations: a deep and a shallow. The main difference between each variety is that the deep version has two pipes connecting it from the water to the home and the shallow only has one. Both varieties are found in older home because it used to be that jet pumps were the only type of pump available.
As a more recent option submersible pumps are designed to float directly in the water of the well and push the water out of the well to the home. Since the water does not need to be drawn from the well to the pump there is one less step and that makes these pumps more efficient.
The National Groundwater Association has recommended that wells and well equipment receive maintenance service on an annual basis. This allows for small issues to be identified before they escalate and also ensures the health of the well and the water coming from it. A maintenance check will involve:
- A flow test to determine how strong the water is coming out and give clues about how the pump motor is performing.
- An inspection of the equipment to make sure there isn’t any corrosion and everything is up to code.
- A test of the water to check for bacteria and levels of mineral deposits and sulfides.
