Water Wells and Their Maintenance Guidelines

Author: 
Thomas H. Miller

If you have a home well, you alone are responsible for maintaining the safety of your drinking water supply. When your well system is suitably located, correctly installed, properly maintained, and regularly tested, you will have few problems with water quality. Water testing may be required by lenders when you sell or refinance your home, but otherwise, it's up to YOU to make sure it is safe to drink.
