A well is a pipe that goes down into the aquifer to produce water for a place. An aquifer is a flow of water underneath the ground which flows through rocks.

The well is pounded down into the ground about 100 feet where there is a rock formation and water is pulled , rock formation protects the water source from sand and debris.

The piping system is made up of galvanized pipe with couplings and at the bottom of the pipe a drive shoe is pounded into the rock formation. The drive shoe is a coupling constructed sharp side and a threaded side for this purpose. Also the piping will have a PVC pipe lining to protect the well from corrosion in the years to come.

Well Installation Services : Galvanized or PVC?

Over the years galvanized pipe has a tendency to rust but the PVC will keep the well intact for many years to come. At the top of the well head which is a tee fitting there is stainless steel screen inserted in the Tee to prevent debris from the well from jamming the check valve.

A check valve is a brass or plastic valve which holds the water in the plumbing system intact when the jet pump is not running. If debris gets into the check valve then all the water will drain from the pump and tank back into the well. Most people have problems when the pump loses the prime and this scenario is one that is the major culprit in this problem.

The jet pump average from three-quarter horsepower to two horse power depending on the demand with how many bathrooms and other things. Some water filtration systems can actually reduce the pressure in a house so larger jet pumps are needed to handle this problem.

Many years ago and pump systems were installed, galvanized tanks were used with air volume controls on the tank. But now tank have an airbag inside where air volume controls are not needed. The pump fills up to a certain pressure then turns off when the tank is full. When the tank gets low the pressure switch will turn on the pump to fill the tank back up. The pressure switch is located on the side of the pump. The purpose of the pressure switch is when the water gets full in the tank the pump will shut off and when it gets low it turns out. In a basic water filter system there is a water softener.

The water softener prevents the calcium entering into your house and causing water stains on your glasses and damages the water heater and appliances in your kitchen. A water softener needs salt to be dumped in the softener every 30 days. This will prevent calcium from entering your home. Another element of the water filtration system is an iron filter. The reason for having an iron filter is to keep iron deposits from building in your home appliances and fixtures.

A simple method to check and see if there is iron deposits in your water.

Take the lid of the toilet and look inside if the toilet tank has a rust color on the porcelain inside the tank. Then iron is coming into your house. The types of iron filters are green sand and prolix filters. If your house water as a rotten egg smell it has sulfur and bacteria in the well.

The only way to get rid of the bacteria is to injected with a slight solution of chlorine or peroxide with an injection pump and a neutralization tank. These water filter systems need to be understood by the homeowner and able to do simple maintenance to keep the units in operational condition.

There are companies that provide salt and maintenance on the systems once a month so the homeowner would not need to worry about the maintenance.

About Plumbing Cleanout

GENERAL IDEA OF YOUR CLEANOUTS

When your drains are flooding in the toilet, the bathtub and the shower, you call a plumber to come to your house, he probably will ask you : Do you know where the cleanout is located in the house? And you will think : What is he talking about?. Well, a cleanout is located in the front side or back of the house on the main drain.

Main drain stoppages can be the cause of many things, tree roots, broken pipes or just plain old rages the homeowners have a lot of beautiful landscaping surrounding their house and think, this big ugly pipe could be seen in their landscaped yard is completely unheard.

Drain Cleaning Service

Vent Stack

Keep in mind that if there is no cleanout the plumber would probably go to the top of the roof. When the plumber is at the top of the roof, the snake would be inserted into the vent stack. The vent stack is the opening in the drain system to let air in so the drain system will work properly. Anytime someone goes to the top of the roof there is a possibility of damaging the roof tiles or even falling off the roof. So when the plumber is there ask if it’s possible to install a cleanout in a way which is not noticeable.

The plumber would probably be able to install a cleanout by digging up sewer main cut the pipe and install the two-way cleanout with a valve box on the top. Many older houses has cast-iron pipe a lot of the newer houses have PVC. Many projects start in houses when installing a cleanout.
