Your home’s water supply is a vital component of your family’s health and well-being. Water treatment systems come in many different varieties and can either treat your whole water system (point of entry of POE) or point of consumption (Point of use or POU).

A well-running dry is not a common occurrence in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, but it is not unheard of. If you’ve noticed lots of air in the water system, that you are running out of water after heavy usage, like watering the lawn, or your water pressure is very low, your well could be running dry. Homeowners today have a number of options when it comes to replacing a dry well wells, but first, they must determine if the well has actually run dry or if the problem is caused by a mechanical failure.

If you’re buying a home, there are so many things to consider and inspections that need to be done. If you’re looking at a home with a private well, however, there’s an extra inspection not to overlook that’s very important to your family’s health: a well water test.

Whether building a new home or making updates to an old home, deciding where to place a new well on your property is a difficult decision, especially when there are nearby structures or roads that limit well placement. New Hampshire, Massachusetts and local water, planning and health boards all have their own well regulations. Knowing the required setbacks and other regulations can help homeowners find a suitable spot on their property for the new well. Contact well water specialists, like Skillings & Sons, are also familiar with local regulations and can help homeowners locate their well.
