Here are some of the common well water problems and questions we often get:
I need a new well: Whether it’s a new homeowner that needs to replace a failed well, or a long-time homeowner that is no longer getting the amount of water needed from their well, Skillings & Sons can consult with them about their well construction options, install the new well, or discuss other causes that could address their water problem without digging a new well.
I want more pressure or have low water pressure: We often get calls from homeowners who are frustrated with weak water flow, or find the shower turns to a trickle when someone turns on the faucet in the kitchen. Low water pressure has a number of causes and we can take the homeowner step by step through each possible cause to properly address the problem.
I have smelly water and/or staining on fixtures and clothing: New England is known for its large supply of clean water, but this water often contains naturally-occurring minerals and metals that can cause staining, crust on water fixtures and bad odors. Our staff can help you determine the cause of these problems with water testing and analysis, can advise you on your water treatment options, and even install the system you choose.
Is my water safe to drink? We advise all homeowners conduct an initial water quality test when moving in or after constructing a new well. Every well has its own chemistry and should be evaluated to determine if there are any problems. Our testing packages are analyzed by only state-certified labs and when the results come in, we will take the time to help you make sense of the results.
