Water Softener 101

Uncategorized Comments Off on Water Softener 101

Soap and shampoo not lathering well in the shower? Skin and hair dry and itchy? Spots all over your dishes? Clean laundry not looking its best? Coffee pot full of scaly crud?

 

If you’re dealing with any or all of these issues around the house, chances are that hard water is to blame. Thankfully, C&J Water Treatment of Central Indiana has the solution. Keep reading to learn more about water softeners, and the type of system that is best for you.

 

What Does a Water Softener Do?

 

First things first, let’s explain what a water softener is and what it does. “It’s all in the name” is certainly true here – water softeners literally soften water, by removing certain minerals. In most cases, this means excess calcium and other minerals, which are naturally occurring elements often found in well water but also present in many municipal water supplies. While these minerals aren’t necessarily bad for your health, when they build up in your plumbing they cause all sorts of household issues like we mentioned at the top of this blog post.

 

What Types of Water Softeners Are Common?

 

Great question – it’s one we hear a lot. Probably the most common and conventional type of water softener, and one we stock here at C&J Water Treatment, is the salt-based water softener. It relies on a salt brine, like that salt water you used to gargle for a sore throat when you were a kid. This system works by replacing the hard minerals (calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, etc.) for sodium, which is softer. You won’t taste the sodium, of course, but you’ll “feel” it, in terms of better soap lather, softer skin, and cleaner dishes. Salt-based water softeners will also help extend the life of your home’s hot water heater.

 

Other, less popular water softening systems include:

 

  • Salt-free softeners. Relying on a potassium-chloride substitute solution in place of sodium, these systems aren’t true water softeners. They are better known as “water conditioners,” and work by preventing minerals from building up on surfaces around the home, such as plumbing pipes, appliances, and people, too. If someone in your household is adverse to any increase in salt intake whatsoever, this may be a system to consider.
  • Dual tank softeners. Conventional water softeners need to recharge from time to time. This typically happens overnight when everyone at home is asleep and there is no water demand. If fresh water demand persists in your home at all hours of the day and night, you might want to consider a dual tank system. When one tank is offline recharging, the other tank kicks in and vice versa. Dual tank softeners are handy for larger families or folks who work day and night shifts, but they are also more expensive.

 

Upgrading to a Water Softener Today

 

These days, there is no reason to settle for hard water’s damaging effects. Not only does it wear out your skin, your appliances, and your clothes, hard water also takes its toll on your home’s plumbing system, often responsible for pipe damage and costly plumbing repairs. If you and your family are tired of living with hard water, talk to C&J Water Treatment. Learn what type of system works best for your family, and take advantage of exclusive seasonal offers and special payment options. Water softeners are low-maintenance machines that begin to pay for themselves as soon as you turn on the tap. Upgrade today!

Drinking Well Water – Can It Ever Be As Good As Bottled Water?

Water Treatment Comments Off on Drinking Well Water – Can It Ever Be As Good As Bottled Water?

Most water wells in Indiana produce clean, safe water for use at home. Our customers here at C&J Water Treatment often thank us for the work we do bringing them the freedom of a reliable private water supply. But many of you have asked us a common question: how can you improve the quality of that drinking water?

 

We’re happy to answer that question, and C&J Water Treatment finds that just as many of our customers are surprised by the answer: how would you like bottled water quality straight from your own well? Yes, we can absolutely make that happen.

 

Sources of Bottled Water

 

The next time you shop for groceries, take a look at the different brands of bottled water on the store shelf. Read the labels and see where these companies source their water. It’s an often overlooked fact that much of the bottled water we consume comes right from a well. That’s true even for some of those expensive “fancy” water bottles. When you reach into your fridge or cooler and crack open an ice cold bottle of water, what you’re drinking is often simple well water!

 

Reverse Osmosis

 

So what’s the trick? It’s a system called Reverse Osmosis, and C&J Water Treatment can bring that system right to you. Reverse Osmosis improves taste, clarity, and purity by removing nearly all dissolved solids from softened water. Applications can be found in many settings around the world. Wastewater plants use reverse osmosis to purify water. It is common in the food industry as well. Ships at sea rely on reverse osmosis to desalinate saltwater for drinking. Even the U.S. military uses it to provide fresh, potable water to our troops and for disaster relief.

 

Best of all, reverse osmosis is an affordable system. For most water well owners, a reverse osmosis system from C&J costs about $765 installed. For that price, you can enjoy bottled water quality straight from the kitchen faucet, the water dispenser in your refrigerator and the ice maker in your freezer!

 

Bottled water is great for drinking, but not so much for the environment. Last year alone, Americans used about 50 billion plastic water bottles (http://www.banthebottle.net/bottled-water-facts/). With a reverse osmosis system at home, you can purchase a reusable Nalgene or similar water bottle, and enjoy the best water anywhere with confidence for just pennies. The more water you drink, the more your C&J reverse osmosis system pays for itself. I always keep my Nalgene full of well water from my system. In fact, I find other water, even from those fancy bottles, sub-standard to what I get every day from home.

 

Safe, affordable, quality drinking water from your own water well without the negative odors or tastes sometimes associated with well water. It’s as simple as reverse osmosis. Talk to C&J Water Treatment today about getting a reverse osmosis system installed in your home.

What is Reverse Osmosis?

Water Treatment Comments Off on What is Reverse Osmosis?

Reverse Osmosis – What Is It?

 

Chances are you’ve heard of reverse osmosis (or R.O. for short). There’s also a good chance you have no idea what R.O. is or how it works. Thankfully, C&J Water Treatment Co. of Indianapolis is here to break it all down for you!

 

What Reverse Osmosis Does

 

R.O. systems filter water – they just do a better job at it than many other water filtration systems, especially when it comes to removing most inorganic materials, such as salt, chlorine, heavy metals, pesticides, nitrates, etc. That is what makes reverse osmosis so effective for homes with brackish water or where fertilizers and other agricultural runoff can affect the local drinking water supply.

 

How Reverse Osmosis Works

 

R.O. systems force water at high pressure through a very fine membrane, which allows water molecules to squeeze through but not much else. On the clean side of the membrane, the system collects the clean water and sends it to your tap. On the “dirty” side of the membrane, the system automatically flushes the collected contaminants down your drain.

 

Most R.O. systems actually involve several filtration stages, including a pre-filter stage that removes heavier materials such as sediment and turbidity, a carbon stage that removes chemicals which may damage the membrane, a post-filter stage that helps remove tastes and odors, and a remineralization stage that adds healthy minerals such as calcium and magnesium back into your drinking water while also balancing its pH.

 

Pros & Cons of Reverse Osmosis

 

Some of the pros to R.O. filtration include higher quality, safer, and better tasting tap water. They are also more efficient at removing contaminants than many other systems on the market today. R.O. systems are low maintenance and do not rely on electricity, so even if your home loses power your drinking water won’t suffer. They are also user-friendly and don’t require a lot of moving parts or take up a lot of space.

 

One of the biggest cons of R.O. is the wastewater they tend to produce. Some dirty water remains on one side of the membrane, and this water is typically sent down the drain. However, there are pumps and other add-on components that can help minimize or completely eliminate wasted water. If you are interested in learning more about these systems and the various options available for your home, contact the team at C&J Water Treatment.

 

Why You Should Consider Reverse Osmosis at Home

 

If your household wants to eliminate odors and contaminants from your water supply, and you want the highest quality, “better than the bottle” drinking water available, then reverse osmosis might be for you. Even if you rely on treated municipal water instead of a well, you never fully know what comes out of your tap. A home R.O. system adds an additional strong layer of security and is guaranteed to remove lead, fluoride, and other components that sometimes make it through the citywide water treatment process.

 

Compare a reverse osmosis system with your home’s current water filtration system and find out which one works best for you and your family. Talk to C&J Water Treatment Co. in Indianapolis to get started!

Anatomy of a Water Well

Water Well Anatomy Comments Off on Anatomy of a Water Well

 

You turn on your tap; water flows out. When it comes to wells, we don’t give them much thought. Let’s look beyond that bit of pipe that sticks out of the ground and dive deep into the anatomy of your water well.

anatomy-of-a-water-well

 

Well Head

That pipe we just mentioned is called the well head. This is the very top of a well, consisting of the tip of a long pipe constructed of weather-resistant material (typically PVC). A well expert such as C&J Well Company will access the well head to reach many of the other system components. When not in use, a secure cap fits over the head to keep out debris and protect the electrical wiring that powers the pump.

Well Casing

The length of pipe itself is called a casing. This long pipe is usually also made of durable PVC, which doesn’t corrode like metal casings that used to be standard decades ago. Water rises into the casing up to the pump, which then transports the water into your home. C&J Well Company uses a specially designed pressure grout to coat the casing, providing increased strength and better protection of well components. We also dig wells into natural underground gravel beds to promote efficient water flow, which helps form aquifers for constant water sources.

Well Pump

If your water well was a living creature, the pump would be its heart. This is the main and most important component of the entire system. The submersible well pump uses electricity to draw water from an underground aquifer and send it through plumbing pipes to fixtures in and around your home. Although well pumps are designed to provide many years of trouble-free service, their streamlined design allows for easy removal from and reinsertion into the casing in the event of maintenance or repairs, by an experienced well pro such as C&J Well Company.

Well Screen

At the very bottom of the casing, below the pump and above a specialized sand media, sits the well screen. Just like the filter in your coffee pot, this screen filters out tiny bits of debris from your water source thanks to its stainless steel design, while the sand traps even smaller particulates. This provides increased protection of the well pump and other vital well components. C&J Well suggests having your screen cleaned at regular intervals. We can accomplish this task quickly and efficiently, using a combination of highly pressurized water and other techniques to blast any accumulated debris out of your well without damaging its parts.

Protecting & Maintaining Your Well

Whether you need a new well dug and installed, scheduled maintenance of an existing well, or repairs or replacement parts, count on C&J Well Company. From top to bottom, inside and out, we are your go-to Central Indiana water well team!

How “Well” Do You Know Your Water Pump System?

Water Treatment, Water Well Anatomy Comments Off on How “Well” Do You Know Your Water Pump System?

When it comes to water wells, do you think pumps are pretty much the same? Well, think again.water well pump system

Constant Pressure vs. Standard or Conventional Pressure

There are some big differences between two of the well pump systems commonly found on today’s market. In fact, one of these systems was on yesterday’s market, due to the fact its technology has been around for more than 50 years.

One of the questions new water well customers ask us the most goes something like this:

“Hey there C&J Well Company, should I get a constant pressure or a standard pressure pump system?”

This is a great question, and one we really love to answer! It’s also a very important question, and depends on a lot of factors like home size, family size, budget, and your water consumption demand.

Constant pressure and standard pressure systems both do the same thing, and that’s move water from your well into and throughout your home’s plumbing. However, they do this in different ways. With constant pressure, the system closely monitors your home’s water pressure and adjusts your pump accordingly. Say you are taking a shower – the system will speed up or slow down your pump if it senses a second shower, or a washing machine, or a lawn sprinkler turn on or off, for example.

With a standard pressure system, there is no speeding up or slowing down. It simply turns on or turns off your pump depending on changes to water pressure at home. These hard starts and stops are less gentle on your pump, but standard pressure systems can help conserve a bit more water over the life of the system.

Benefits of Constant Pressure Over Standard/Conventional Pressure

Go for a ride through Indiana’s countryside and you might notice one or more larger tanks next to some of the homes. These big 100+ gallon tanks usually mean the home is equipped with a standard pressure system. There is nothing wrong with this type of system – it simply isn’t the most efficient system on today’s market. When you upgrade to a constant pressure system, you actually decrease your tank size. You may even decrease the amount of tanks you need. A constant pressure system utilizes a tank not much larger than a standard propane tank for your gas grill. This means it takes up much less space on your property.

Another benefit to a constant pressure system can be found right there in its name. These systems automatically turn on or adjust the speed of your pump when a sensor detects a drop of just a few PSI. Compare this with a standard pressure system, which typically activates the pump only after a drop of 20 or more PSI. Thanks to greater precision in constant pressure systems, you won’t experience as much fluctuation in your home’s water pressure as you might remember with older systems. Talk about enjoying city water without the city water bill! As a bonus, due to fewer fluctuations in PSI and the ability to adjust the pump, constant pressure systems usually require fewer pump startups and stops. This can greatly reduce the wear and tear on your pump, extending its service life while cutting down on maintenance costs.

Ready to add or upgrade to a well pump system that takes up less space while delivering water pressure similar to what you’d find in the city? Get in touch with C&J Well Company of Indianapolis! We’re happy to answer all of your questions about constant pressure and standard pressure systems. When you contact us, be sure to also ask about our special seasonal offers going on right now. You can save up to several hundred dollars and even take home some water treatment equipment for free with select purchases.

Benefits of Installing a Home Water Well

Uncategorized Comments Off on Benefits of Installing a Home Water Well

At C&J Well Company of Indianapolis, water is our bread and butter. We know a thing or two about it, and we want you to know just how much better well water is than that treated City stuff.

So keep reading for a list of our three favorite benefits of your own private water well.

Water Well Benefits

1) The Price Sure Is Right

Hate having a water bill? Well, guess what? Well water is free! After the initial costs of installing your private water well and equipment, you can kiss those pesky municipal bills goodbye. Add up your family’s average monthly bills, and you can really get a sense of how much you’ll save in the long run.

Like any home appliance, there are some maintenance costs associated with keeping your water well pump running smoothly, but as long as you follow routine maintenance with the help of C&J Well Company, those costs will be minimal and few and far between.

2) Reliability and Durability

Speaking of routine maintenance, that’s another one of our favorite benefits of private water wells. The systems are surprisingly reliable and resilient, and they are built to last. High-quality well pumps, like the Grundfos line sold and serviced by C&J Well Company, will run smoothly for 10, 15, or even 20 or more years with minimal routine maintenance.

Forget boil water advisories, water main breaks, municipal treatment plant accidents, and other water quality issues that are out of your hands – with a private water well, your fresh water source is as close to home as it gets, instead of way over on the other side of town and through miles upon miles of aging infrastructure. Talk about buying local!

3) Cheers to Your Health

We’re not knocking municipal drinking water, which is a safe and proven source of potable water for millions of Indiana families. However, to make that water safe, local water departments rely on a variety of controversial chemicals and other harsh treatment methods. From caustic and chlorine, to heavy filters and even fluoride, there’s quite a bit of stuff that goes into your typical glass of water to take all the bad stuff out. And sometimes the bad stuff still makes it through.

One of the side effects to public water treatment is the removal of many healthy, naturally occuring minerals. Not with well water. Thanks to natural filtration in the earth, well water tends to taste better, feel better, and is better for you. If you still want a bit more peace of mind, C&J Well Company offers a variety of filtration and water quality systems to accompany your private well.

Well water really gives you and your family the best of all worlds. It’s affordable, it’s reliable, it’s healthy, and it’s all yours. To learn more about the many benefits of having your own water well, contact the local water well pros at C&J Well Company of Indianapolis. Whether you have a thousand-acre farm in the country or a half-acre homestead in the heart of the city, we have a water well solution designed just for you. Cheers!

Do You Know How to Properly Maintain a Water Well?

Well Maintenance Comments Off on Do You Know How to Properly Maintain a Water Well?

One of the greatest things about water wells – besides the water itself – is that they are typically pretty hassle-free. If you want to squeeze every last drop out of your well’s performance, follow these expert tips from C&J Well Company of Indianapolis.

Maintain Your Water Well

Do This: Homework

As a water well owner, you want to make sure you know how your well works, understand its components, and recognize the warning signs when something isn’t working the way it should. You don’t need to be a licensed pro like us to do this. Instead, think of your home’s water well like your car – you know when to fill the gas tank, when to change the oil, and when to replace the tires, even if you’re not a mechanic. A well requires the same basic understanding and commitment.

Do This: Preventative Measures

As we mentioned above, oil changes are one of the simplest and effective ways to keep your car on the road. Likewise, some simple preventative steps will keep your well pumping clean drinking water into your home.

Once a year, have your water well properly disinfected. You can disinfect your well or have an expert such as C&J Well Company do it for you. This will help prevent and eliminate harmful bacteria.

Every two to three years, have your well and pump system routinely inspected. This process usually takes only a few hours to complete, and can identify wear & tear and other potential issues before they turn into major problems.

Do This: Hire a Qualified Well Expert

Here’s one area you don’t want to skimp on, or rely on sites like Craigslist to find a “pro.” For all of your home’s water well and well treatment needs, insist on a licensed, experienced, and proven professional. C&J Well Company has been serving the greater Indianapolis area and central Indiana for years. Contact the Better Business Bureau, ask around, browse our social media pages, and read our real customer reviews (we never pay for reviews) … you’ll find we’re an honest, friendly, and affordable family company committed to you. Don’t count on a fly-by-night handyman who charges up front. Insist on the best. That’s C&J.

Don’t Do This: Self-Service

We appreciate all you handymen and handywomen out there, but water well service can be a big challenge for even the most seasoned DIYer. That’s why you shouldn’t try to tackle major well maintenance just to save a few bucks – it can end up costing you quite a bit more down the road. Remember, this is your family’s drinking water we’re talking about! Let the well experts at C&J do the hard work for you, because wells and water treatment are all we do.

Don’t Do this: Ignore the Problem

You can probably lump this tip into the preventative measures paragraph above, but when it comes to maintaining your water well, don’t ignore issues no matter how minor they may seem. Cloudy or smelly drinking water; low or slow water pressure; odd sounds when you turn on your tap – all of these annoyances, while rare with well water systems, point to something wrong. You know what folks say about an ounce of prevention. So make sure you respond quickly when something just seems “off” about your home’s well or water.

Along those same lines, please don’t ever hesitate to give C&J Well Company a call. We’re here to help you 24/7/365. Get in touch with our friendly team today. Sometimes, we can diagnose an issue via phone call or email. If it takes a house call, we’re happy to do that and can typically complete your maintenance or repair service in a single visit.

Water wells are simple systems. For all of your questions, turn to C&J Well Company of Indianapolis for the answer.

Geothermal Well Drilling: How Does It Work?

C&J Well Company, Water Treatment, Well Drilling Comments Off on Geothermal Well Drilling: How Does It Work?

Water wells are pretty straightforward. You dig a hole in the ground to reach the water table beneath, add a pump and some pipes, and voilà – there you have it. Granted, there is a bit more work involved, but at C&J Well Company of Indianapolis, digging water wells is similar to digging geothermal wells. So why all the confusion over the latter? Let’s “dig in” a bit more, shall we?

Geothermal Drilling | C&J

What Does Geothermal Mean?

Geothermal heating and cooling means using the earth’s natural and consistent temperature right under the ground to heat and cool your home. The idea is the same for heating and cooling energy, but since it’s late autumn we’ll focus on heating. With geothermal, you don’t “make” heat … you move it. The earth’s crust temperature is about 55 degrees, 365 days a year. We might have a foot of snow on the ground during winters here in Indiana, but just a few feet below our feet, the earth is still 55 degrees. Geothermal heating harnesses that temperature and moves it into and through your home.

What Are the Benefits of Geothermal?

There are several ways geothermal heating and cooling systems top their traditional HVAC alternatives. Geothermal is eco-friendly – since you are harnessing the earth’s natural energy, there is no need to burn fuel. Geothermal systems are affordable and often cost less than natural gas or heating oil to operate. They are also quiet, efficient, reliable, and low-maintenance.

How Does Geothermal Work?

Moving that heat takes a few pieces of equipment in what’s called a “loop.” With geothermal heating, there are two common types of loops – open and closed. An open loop system relies on two wells, one supply well and one return well, and circulates water via pipes between the two. In a closed loop system, a water solution is always in the pipes (think lava lamp), and is circulated through your home’s ventilation.

Where Should I Dig My Geothermal Well?

Great question. That’s where C&J Well Company comes in. No matter the type, size, or scope of your geothermal heating and cooling needs, we can help. Live in the country, suburbs, or busy city? No problem! We dig geothermal wells using the same techniques and equipment for standard drinking water wells. Count on our experience and expertise to choose the best spots on your property to dig and set up geothermal wells. Once your well is ready go, you can harness the power of geothermal energy to heat and cool your home, generate power, and even heat your home’s water and your hot tub, too!

How Can I Learn More?

C&J Well is your central Indiana expert in everything geothermal. From geothermal well digging, to heating and cooling system installation and maintenance, we do it all! Contact a team member today for a no-hassle analysis of your geothermal needs.

Winter’s right around the corner. Are you tired of dealing with an outdated or poorly performing HVAC system? Make the switch to geothermal heating and cooling today.

Common Types Of Home Water Treatments

C&J Well Company, Water Treatment Comments Off on Common Types Of Home Water Treatments

When it comes to home tap water treatment, there are about as many options as there are brands of bottled water. In other words – a lot! C&J Well Water in Indianapolis is here to help you choose the right kind of water treatment for your home and, more importantly, your family.Common Home Water Treatments

Water Filtration Systems

Just as the name implies, this water treatment option uses special filters to remove impurities in water. It’s one of the most popular types of treatment on the market today. Why? Because water filters are generally affordable and because they work.

Filters themselves come in many shapes and sizes. From handheld bottles and pitchers you store in your fridge, to kitchen faucet-mounted and even whole-house systems, there’s a water filter designed for your particular needs. The media found in filters ranges from natural elements including activated carbon and sand, to chemicals such as potassium permanganate, and more advanced setups that rely on ion exchange. Depending on the size and type of filter you want, prices start at a few bucks and can increase to thousands of dollars.

Water Disinfection

Sometimes, tiny microorganisms can still find their way through even the toughest filters. Unfortunately, many of these invisible organisms – including e-coli and cryptosporidium – pack a big gut punch.That’s where water disinfection enters. Using physical or chemical processes, or a combination of both, disinfection systems kill any pathogens in the water supply. Ultraviolet or UV lighting uses the same type of rays found in our sun to disrupt the microscopic bugs’ DNA, rendering them harmless. On the chemical side, chlorine and ozone are often used to kill them in their tracks.

Water Softeners

Ever heard of hard or soft water? That’s what we’re talking about here. Hard water has all kinds of problems associated with it. These range from causing dry skin, lessening the cleaning power of your dishwasher and washing machine, and promoting excess calcium buildup on your water-using appliances. Like water filtration, water softeners are pretty self-explanatory: they reduce the hardness of your home’s tap water. In many softening systems, “soft” sodium or potassium replaces the naturally occurring “hard” calcium and magnesium, which leaves your water actually feeling softer and tasting better. Read more about the many benefits of soft water. Water softeners are long-lasting, low-maintenance systems that can pay for themselves over time by reducing the wear and tear on your home’s other essential appliances.

The list doesn’t stop here. Other common home water treatment options include reverse osmosis (RO), distillation, and a good old-fashioned water well cleaning. Not sure which treatment systems are right for you? C&J Well Company offers them all! Not only do we sell the parts and accessories you need to get started and maintain your home water treatment system, we also install, service, and replace outdated systems. Contact a member of our Indianapolis team and we’ll be happy to provide you honest, trustworthy, and hassle-free advice without the added pressure to buy something.

Overall in Indiana, we’re lucky to have safe public and private water supplies across the state, but as the old saying goes … it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Add safety to your home’s water and your family’s health. Talk to C&J Well Company today!

4 Signs Your Well Needs to Be Cleaned or Replaced

Well Maintenance, Well Water Problems Comments Off on 4 Signs Your Well Needs to Be Cleaned or Replaced

Your well water system should be treated like any home appliance, it requires regular maintenance and monitoring. Finding a trusted well service company is essential to ensuring you’ll always have a fresh, clean water supply. However, when your well has unexpected signs of malfunction, it’s important to act quickly. Here are four common indicators that your well water system needs to be cleaned or replaced.

Well Water Systems

Sputtering Faucets

A sputtering faucet is an indication that there might be a damaged seal or malfunctioning pump. Keeping up regular maintenance can avoid issues like these, as they can be caused by build-up in your well. Replacing the well might be necessary if the pump is irreparable, but your well service provider can properly assess the situation.

Higher Electric Bill

This can be due to your well pump working overtime due to sediment build-up. Often times a proper cleaning done by a professional well service provider can fix this problem, and your electric bill will return to normal. However, if your well equipment is worn down due to lack of attention to this type of problem for a few months it may need to be replaced.

Water Isn’t Clear

Anything out of the norm is a cause for concern. If you are finding your water to be white and cloudy or yellowed, it could be time for a cleaning to flush out the organic and inorganic particle build-up in your well. A reddish brown is also a reason to schedule a cleaning, as your well probably needs to be bleached to take care of the extra iron and manganese in your water. The most alarming sign is if your water has a blue-green hue, as this indicates copper pipe corrosion. If the pipes are too far corroded it might be time for a new well system!

Low Water Pressure

Water pressure change is something well owners should always be aware of. If you notice a change in your pressure, even slight, check your pump’s psi gauge. If your gauge is showing under 20psi, it’s time to call your well service provider. If it’s an older well, replacement is probably the best option.

If one or more of these issues are happening with your own well, it’s in your best interest to call your well service provider immediately. Your water supply can have a significant impact on your health and wellness, so don’t ignore these signs of improper well function! Contact us at C&J Well Co. today to hear about the well services we offer.
