A water treatment system is used in different households as a water filter. A water filter is a device used which removes impurities from water by means of a physical barrier, chemical or any biological process.
Most well water is pumped out of the ground automatically by means of using a submersible pump or a jet pump and draws water out of the ground to create water pressure for the home. Some well water systems use a larger storage tank to store the water before it is pumped again to the house.
As this is very helpful to your home, a regular maintenance of your well is required so that your water at home is safe to use and secured from any contaminants. First thing that you can do is to check and test your water wells annually.
Having this kind of yearly inspection and drain cleaning gives an opportunity to see any mechanical problems, cleanliness, and the presence of contaminants like bacteria, nitrates, arsenic or radon.
Well water should also be tested more than once a year at least if there are any recurring events of gastrointestinal illness among the residents of the house or those people who visit the house. It is also essential to check any change in the taste, odor or appearance of the well water.
There are hazardous materials that should be kept away from the well water such as paint, fertilizer, pesticides, and motor oil. Always remember that when mixing chemicals, do not place the hose inside the mixing container.
