Our environment is a fragile ecosystem that relies on complex mechanisms and relationships between everything found within it. Over the years, technologies developed to make human life more comfortable, and the consequences these technologies had on the environment were neglected. Practices such as drilling and hydrofracking made running water ubiquitous throughout the United States; however, there are more environmentally friendly ways to achieve this goal. The Well Manager® system aims to take an environmentally friendly approach to protect your well and aquifer over the long term.
Protecting the Well and Aquifer
Several factors determine how much yield you get out of your well. The amount of rainfall your area typically gets, how prone your region is to droughts, and the physical location of the well all must be taken into account when determining the yield. In the case of a low-yield well, the pump system has to do the same amount of work with less water and tries to compensate for the diminishing reserves. However, with a Well Manager® system installed, conservation mechanisms enable the well to not only deliver consistent water pressure for the household, but also store backup water for future use. These redundancies help prevent overpumping, which creates greater stress on the well and potentially leads to complete well failure. The following infographic explains more about how to tell if your well is overpumping:
Protecting Your Home’s Water Supply
The average family of 4 goes through 300-500 gallons of water per day. That estimate includes showers, bathroom usage, hand washing, cooking, and cleaning. Low-yield wells are prone to be over-pumped in these homes and can lead to lower water pressure or less water for later use. Land subsidence occurs when the water drains from an area, and the ground begins to resettle, thereby permanently affecting how much water the well can store. Hydrofractured wells suffer from this phenomenon when they are over-pumped and suffer from unstable structural integrity. However, a Well Manager® system helps regulate the amount of water a household uses and ensures that over pumping is not a long term issue.
A Well Manager® system will help maintain the long term health of your well, as each system can last between 10 and 15 years. It will also help lower your energy bill and preserve the health of the well and the aquifer.
