Well owners spend 2.8 billion dollars a year on well services in the United States. Sometimes those services are planned, like when you have a water expert come to your home to test the water in your well, or when the pump has come to the end of its expected life. But most of the time, something has gone wrong; the well isn’t producing as much water as it should, and/or the pump has failed or is about to fail. In extreme cases, the failure can be catastrophic and recovery can be very expensive: in the tens of thousands of dollars to dig a new well or find water elsewhere. These emergencies are usually related to the quantity of water in your well.
With information about water level, you can see what’s happening in the well and work closely with your well contractor to lower operating costs and keep equipment running longer. You’ll be able to prevent emergencies, make the most of your well and water systems investment, you can share information about groundwater with your neighbors if you choose, and you can rest assured that your property and family are protected.
