If you rely on a borehole water supply either for domestic or commercial use then keeping it maintained is extremely important.
Top Tips for Maintaining Your Borehole
1. Don’t try to service your own borehole
It’s tempting for business and homeowners to try and carry out regular servicing on their own borehole to save costs. However, this can, and has led to them doing almost irreversible damage to their borehole water supply. Borehole contractors like us have both specialist knowledge and equipment to keep private water supply systems fully operational and water supplies safe from contamination.
2. Prevention is Always Cheaper than the Cure
A borehole installation is a lot like a car. If you leave something that’s small and easily fixable it often becomes larger and much more expensive problem later down the line. If you’re using your borehole water as drinking water this is doubly important as by ignoring problems you may be putting your own or families health at risk.
3. Test Your Water Regularly
Testing your water regularly is highly important, in fact the National Ground Water Association recommend you carry this out at least once each year. Water testing should also be carried out any time there is a change in the taste, odour, or appearance of the borehole water, or if a problem occurs such as a broken well cap or a new contamination source.
