What if you never changed your oil or car looked under the hood? How long has your latest car?

When it comes to water wells, many well owners little attention to maintenance and water quality. Yet it is equally important. Few things are more essential than the water you drink and your family. A water well assessment by a qualified contractor will help ensure a reliable supply of drinking water.

"If it's important you schedule," said Kevin McCray, National Ground Water Association Executive Director. "That's what we do with the dental screenings, pediatric visits, including cars under warranty. As the water you drink is important, we encourage all owners of wells to mark a date in the calendar each year to call and schedule a well balance. "

For many owners of wells, this time might be now. The National Ground Water Association (NGWA) recommends a maintenance check and well water tested at least every 12 months. If you have not, now is the right time for a check well before a problem occurs, McCray said.

According Ngwa, a well report should include:

* A flow test to determine and output.
* A check water level before and during pumping, if possible.
* A monitoring operation of the pump motor, including the load in amperes, land and blood.
* A pressure tank and check the pressure switch contact.
* An inspection of the equipment and ensure it is sanitary and meets local codes.
* A water test for coliform bacteria, nitrates and anything else of local interest. (Additional tests may be recommended if water is cloudy or oily, if bacterial growth is visible on the equipment, or devices for water treatment does not work correctly.)
* A written report that clearly explains the findings and recommendations, and includes all laboratory results and others.

You can arrange a health check by contacting a local water and the contractor who performs the type of care recommended by NGWA.

"Be a responsible owner and well taken care of your well water. This will preserve your time, money and good health in the long term," said McCray.
