In many parts of our country we don’t think too much about our water storage or delivery system except to pay the monthly utility bill. However, living in rural areas often requires the use of private wells and water delivery systems to keep the home, farm or ranch properly supplied. Along with the people who live there the owners must take into consideration any livestock or irrigation requirements they may have.
Well established properties may already have a working water well, but over time these wells can fail or may not supply the needs of the owners as well as they should. There are several solutions to this problem including installing a new well or adding an additional well, but your needs might also be met with an additional storage tank or a pressurized storage system to take some of the load off the existing well. Deciding which of these systems is right for you requires the help of an experienced contractor like Aqua Well & Pump Systems Inc WI.
Air charging systems could be one of the most beneficial adaptations you could add to your well system. It’s primary purpose is to keep your water system under enough pressure so the main pump engine doesn’t have to operate every time someone opens a valve. Before air pressurization became popular many well systems typically used a large storage tank and let the pump supply the pressure. Unfortunately, this system may not always work as required. There are two basic types of air charging systems. One method is an air over water system called a Conventional Pressure Tank. This system uses a galvanized tank lined with an epoxy which is strong enough to hold the air pressure required to keep the system pressurized. The other system, known as the Captive Air Tank uses a diaphragm or bladder to separate the water from the tank and keep it under pressure.
One of the most important functions a company such as Aqua Well & Pump Systems Inc WI can do for you is to set up a chlorination system to keep your water a little more pure. This is an excellent treatment for high iron, iron bacteria, high hydrogen sulfide or anytime you think the quality of your water supply may be bad. Chlorination removes a variety of bacteria and keeps your water safe for consumption.
