How To Maintain a Water Borehole Supply
Having helped many domestic and commercial customers install and maintain water boreholes to combat costly meter charges from their mains suppliers, we know just how vital a water borehole supply can be. We therefore understand the temptation for homeowners and businesses to attempt to service their own, however, if you’re keen to extend the life of your borehole and maximise efficiency, it’s best to call upon a team of professionals like Dragon Drilling. We recommend all water boreholes are serviced and maintained regularly to safeguard their optimum and long-term performance, and our annual service plans include the following:
- Filter change
- UV bulb change
- Complete system check
- Visual inspection of pipework and components
- Water quality tests, if required
- Tank clean
- 20% discount off parts and labour for 12 months
The National Ground Water Association recommends that you test the water at least once a year, and under the Private Water Supplies Regulations 2010, your water supply must be consistent with drinking water standards. We can ensure your water supply is safe for human consumption, checking for bacteria, nitrates, iron, manganese, water hardness, sulfides and other contaminants. So if you notice a change in taste, colour or odour, it’s best to send us a message or give us a call. We can use our specialist knowledge and equipment to ensure your system remains fully operational and safe from contamination, allowing you to remain self-sufficient, solving any potential issues before they become major (and potentially costly) problems.
Professional maintenance for your borehole: Why it’s well worth the cost
When you’ve invested in a water borehole and the installation is complete, you’re left with a supply of free water, with nothing but maintenance costs to pay. Our annual service plans are designed to ensure your borehole is fit for purpose, providing high quality, consistent water that’s filtered and safe to use. We’re also able to identity any potential problems before they occur, whether that be the failure of a pump, corrosion, damage to bearings, burst pipes or ruptured pressure tanks. Our dedicated team is regularly carrying out maintenance on boreholes for houses, farms, hotels and golf courses in rural and urban locations, saving our clients money every year, whilst ensuring they continue to source natural water with no added chemicals.
