Water Well Freezing Temperatures

Water Well Freezing Temperatures – remember to wrap your exposed pipes.

To prevent freezing you will need to insulate your pipes. You can do this by either wrapping your pipes with a good quality insulating material or heat tape. Another option is to keep the temperature of your pump house above 38°F. You can also add a heat lamp for additional warmth but be careful you don’t start a fire.

Water Well Freezing TemperaturesRemember that there is always a small amount of water in the pipe connection to the pressure switch, and it is extremely vulnerable to freezing.

All insulating materials can be picked up at your local hardware store and is very affordable. Old blankets will also work to prevent pipes from freezing. If the temperature only drops a little bit, you might get away with some heavy duty foam insulation on the pipes.By taking the time to prevent your pipes from freezing, it will save you the headache and expense later on.

Another preventative measure is to also check to make sure that your pipes aren’t leaking. This will prevent mildew build-up and additional freezing risk.

If your pipes freeze, you can always use a hair dryer to thaw them out.

Inspect your well house before winter arrives and use preventative steps to ensure your pipes won’t freeze. Don’t forget that temperatures can drop to freezing, even in Texas.

My Water Well Tested Positive For E-Coli

If your well tests positive for E. coli, you should boil the water for at least one minute at a rolling boil before drinking it. You may also disinfect the well according to procedures recommended by your local health department.

After disinfection, you can monitor your water periodically to make certain that the problem does not recur. If the contamination is a recurring problem, you should install a point-of-entry disinfection unit, which can use chlorine, ultraviolet light, or ozone, or Sterilene..

Water Testing After The Flood

chp8wdmu4aahfo1We have been overloaded that past couple of weeks testing water. Most of the tests are coming back positive for e-coli and bacteria.

This is at a higher average rate than normal. Usually, in most cases, chlorinating your well will kill any bacteria in your water.

The lab has communicated to us to tell our customers to NOT DRINK the water until this process has been completed. Once the well is chlorinated, you will need to wait 7-10 days and retest.

Consumers to Save Water & Money

Tips for Consumers to Save Water and Money

The TCEQ offers several tips to help Texans conserve water and lower costly water bills.

With drought conditions continuing to persist, and water costs rising throughout much of Texas, consumers are looking for ways to save both water and money.coin-money-saving-jar-wallpaper

Taking advantage of a few simple tips can help you save thousands of gallons of water, and hundreds of dollars, each year.

  • Use Less Water – One easy step is to take shorter showers. With a new water-efficient showerhead, a five-minute shower uses less water than a bath. Also, instead of letting the water run while shaving or brushing your teeth, run it just to wet and rinse your razor or toothbrush. Turning off the tap can save up to 2,400 gallons of water a year.

  • Check Faucets and Toilets for Leaks – A faucet leaking at a rate of one drop per second can waste up to 3,000 gallons of water per year, and a leaky toilet can waste about 73,000 gallons per year. Fixing hot-water leaks can save up to $35 per year in utility bills.

  • Wash Full Loads of Laundry – Washing full loads as opposed to partial loads of laundry can save an average household more than 3,400 gallons of water each year. Need a new clothes washer? Look for an ENERGY STAR qualified model, which typically uses about 50 percent less water and 25 percent less energy per load.

  • Invest in a New, Water-Efficient Toilet – Toilets are the main source of water use in the home, accounting for approximately 30 percent of indoor water use. Replacing older toilets with water-efficient ones can save 4,000 gallons of water and more than $90 per year. If 25 percent of all Texas households reduced their water consumption by replacing one older toilet with a 1.6-gallon-per-flush toilet, it would reduce water consumption throughout Texas by more than 875 million gallons annually.

  • Install Water-Efficient Showerheads and Faucet Aerators – Showering is one of the leading ways we use water in the home, accounting for nearly 17 percent of residential indoor water use—for the average family, that adds up to nearly 40 gallons per day. By installing a water efficient showerhead, your family can save 2,900 gallons of water per year. In addition, replacing old, inefficient faucets and aerators can save the average family 700 gallons of water per year, equal to the amount of water needed to take 40 showers. Since these water savings will reduce demands on water heaters, they will also save energy.

  • Use Native Plants – Plants that are native to Texas aren’t only beautiful; they typically require less water, pesticides, fertilizers, and maintenance saving you time and money.

  • Water Wisely – Water your yard thoroughly, but only as needed—usually no more than one inch, once a week. Use drip irrigation where possible and water early in the morning to minimize evaporation. Make certain to always comply with your water systems water-use restrictions.

Common Issue – Pressure Switch

Prevention/Maintenance (Pressure Switch)

One common problem in the summer months in Texas is with the pressure switch. Most of these problems are related to insects. Ants and other insects are attracted to the sound of the electricity in the pressure switch, when they go inside, they get electrocuted and then their bodies fall between the contacts. This causes the contacts to not be able to come together and complete the circuit.

Some ant bait near the pressure switch may be used to help prevent this from happening. If you do need to clean out the switch, make sure all power going to the switch is turned off.
