Step 1 – Inspect Your Well-Casing Cap
- Inspect the well and make sure that the cover is completely sealed all the way around.
- There should be no room for bugs, spiders, mice, or snakes to enter your well casing.
- If there is room for them to enter, they will be attracted to the warm temp as winter approaches and try to crawl towards the warm area, only to fall into the well water and contaminate it.
- Above all, prevent this from happening by ensuring your well cap is tight, and nothing can get in.
- However, if there is any indication that the cap is not in good condition, call your HomeTeam professional to help replace the casing & inspect the situation.
