Residential wells on your property can be more complex than you might realize. Digging a well and utilizing the water may take longer than just one day when you work to install it yourself. If you are wanting a residential well, your plumber may be able to help with the process.
Some plumbers may know more about well installation and well pumps more than others, but we will discuss the pros and cons of having a plumber work on your residential wells below.
Should I Have My Plumber Install My Well?
Finding a plumber that specializes in residential wells will give them the experience and peace of mind about your well. Not all plumbers have the resources to make a good well, but finding one that has years of experience or specialized experience should mean your well will work properly.
Find a plumber with the proper licensing and certifications before just hiring any plumber to install a residential well. Plumbers will be able to tell you if they offer that service when you first call and possibly recommend another company or contractor that can help if they can not.
Water well contractors only focus on the installation and maintenance of residential wells, so if your plumber does not offer this service, look for a contractor next.
What Residential Wells Do For A Home
There are many reasons why you would want a residential well and there are benefits when the well is installed correctly. Plumbers can help you reap all the benefits of wells and proper plumbing by maintaining them.
One of the biggest benefits of having a residential well is helping you save money on water. Since your well will fill with groundwater or irrigation water, it is not supplied by the city. This could lower your city’s water usage and keep your monthly bill low.
Residential wells can help you better control your water too. Using less water, knowing what is in the water, or keeping it free of chemicals can all be done with a proper well and filtration system. This can help your health, reduce wear on your sinks and tubs, and limit allergies. This will also help improve your water quality and give you healthier and cleaner water to drink and use.
Properties with residential wells are more valuable than other properties. Wells will help drive homebuyers because they know they can get the above benefits and save themselves some money in the long run.
Water Lines From A Plumber
Many homes can have multiple water sources and water lines that they utilize. Plumbers can work on water fixtures and install water lines with only a few years of experience. All plumbers and plumbing companies should know at least a little about main water lines, so if you are installing a residential well, working with a plumber to connect it to your home water line or directly to your home can make the project much less daunting.
If your reason for installing a well is that you are having water pressure problems or higher water bills, there may be another solution. Some main water lines can see clogs, root intrusion, or pipe deterioration, so having a plumber inspect your water line may save you money on installing a well in the first place. Having a plumber inspect your water line before installing a well will help the project go smoothly.
