What Does Having Well Water Mean for You and Your Family?

In most rural areas, or those outside of major cities, it is common for your water to come from a well source. In fact, 15 million people in the US rely on well water. Michigan has many counties where more than two-thirds of the residents get their drinking, cleaning, cooking, and bathing water from wells in the ground by their house. (This also is commonly referred to as ground water.) Wells are a great solution for areas that don't have a direct connection to a city water source. As many benefits as there are to having well water, there are an equal number of disadvantages that, without being addressed, can lead to a decline in your family’s overall health within your household.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Well Water 

Well water has many advantages, including:

  • A nearly endless supply of water
  • It is the most cost effective way to deliver water to your home
  • Wells have long life spans (30-50 years) 
  • They are a great way to attain water in almost any region

Disadvantages of well water include:

  • Hard Water and Scale Buildup
  • Harmful contaminants such as bacteria, lead, and arsenic in drinking and bathing water
  • Pumps need to be replaced every 10 or so years
  • Bad taste

What Problems Come with Well Water, and What Does That Mean for My Home?

On a well water source, there is a greater chance that your water may become contaminated with things such as calcium, magnesium, and other harmful minerals because water is forced through your private, metal well. Without a filtration system in place, these contaminants can make it into all of the water you use daily throughout your home. Well water is notoriously associated with having hard water and scale buildup issues. These issues can result in damages to plumbing and appliances, residue spots on dishes, dry skin, and more. Scale buildup is difficult to clean and even harder to get rid of. 

Although all of this may sound alarming, the important thing to note is that well water is perfectly safe- if there are proper filtration systems in place to make it so.
