Your Well Isn’t Dry!

You thought your well was going dry, but that wasn’t the case. Instead, you may be surprised that your water usage has been higher than usual. We checked in with our maintenance team, and they assured us they were ready to help address this problem promptly.

You are probably relieved if you’ve never dealt with this problem. If your well has never gone dry, consider yourself lucky!

The Basics

During the summer, your well may go dry. This is because the water demand during this time of year is significantly higher than during other times.

The best way to deal with this problem is by ensuring you have a sound system to conserve water during those dry seasons. In addition, checking your plan regularly and ensuring that no leaks have developed, as these would be a significant drain on your water supply, is also an excellent way to combat this issue.

If you have a well that has gone dry, don’t be tempted to use a hose or regular tap water to fill it again. This can lead to contamination of the well and should be avoided at all costs. Instead, get in touch with one of our professionals, who can refill your system correctly.

Some Wells Run Low

During certain times of the year, some wells tend to run low. While this is a common phenomenon for all wells, several things can cause your well to dry under certain circumstances.

  • The type of well you have and the location.
  • The amount of groundwater available in your area.
  • Your local climate conditions, such as temperature and rainfall.

The type and location of your well is the first thing considered when determining whether or not your well may run dry. Wells that are located in low-lying areas or near bodies of water tend to be more susceptible to running out of water than those that are found higher up on a hill. This is because groundwater tends to flow downhill, so if you live near a creek, river, or lake, you may need to install a pumping system, so your well does not dry.
