Your water well should be serviced annually. Wells tapping ground water resources can provide drinking water of the highest quality.

The number one benefit is cost effective in the long run. What often happens is that a small, easily correctable problem becomes a large, inconvenient, much more expensive problem. Treating your water well system this way would be like never having an auto mechanic look under the hood of your car until a catastrophic breakdown.
First tip is to not try and serve your well yourself. When well owners try to service their own wells, they usually fail to solve the problem or make it worse. Qualified professional water well system contractors use specialized equipment, materials, and techniques to keep well systems operational and water supplies safe.
This is a good idea whether you’re getting a well maintenance check-up or service for a specific issue. A well maintenance check-up should include these components. First, is a flow test to determine system output, along with a check of the water level before and during pumping (if possible), pump motor performance (check amp load, grounding, and line voltage), pressure tank and pressure switch contact, and general water quality (odor, cloudiness, etc.). Next, is an inspection of well equipment to assure that it is sanitary and meets local code.
Finally, a concise, clear, written report should be delivered to you following the check-up that explains results.
Your external pump can only be covered in an outside pump house. However, when landscaping, keep the top of your well at least one foot above the ground. Slope the ground away from your well for proper drainage. Take care in working or mowing around your well. A damaged casing could jeopardize the sanitary protection of your well. Don’t pile leaves or other materials around your well. Be sure to watch for ant mounds and wasps nests in and around your pump.
Nothing is required but you should keep your well records in a safe place because some insurance companies require these documents. These include the construction report, as well as annual water well system maintenance and water testing results.
There are several things that may be causing the pump to go on and off. It is recommended that the well be serviced as soon as possible to prevent unnecessary stress on the pump and well.

The State Engineer’s Office has rules that require old wells that are no longer used to be properly plugged and abandoned. The existing owner has the responsibility to comply with these regulations.
When your well has come to the end of its serviceable life (usually more than 20 years), have your qualified water well contractor properly seal your well after constructing your new system.
First, abandoned wells can provide a direct pathway for contamination into the aquifer, perhaps the same one you are using for drinking water. Often an abandoned well will have no well cap or the cap will be broken, allowing bugs, rodents or objects into the well. Abandoned hand-dug wells not only present a contamination concern, they also can create a physical danger to people who can fall into them. Landowners should find the location of any old or out-of-service wells.
