Does your Knoxville home use well water?

If so, it’s important to understand how to periodically treat and test the water you’re using.

At Sunrise Properties - We Buy Houses, we’ve bought and sold many properties that use well water in the more rural parts of Knoxville and there are a few things that people should be aware of.

Here’s what one should keep in mind…

Well Water Comes From The Ground — Dead simple, well water comes straight from an aquifer in the ground. This means it’s untreated when it reaches a home and it’s only as clean as it was when it was pulled from the ground.

Well Water is Hard — Well water is usually hard because it dissolves a lot of minerals like calcium and magnesium in the soil. Hard water can react with certain cleaning products, cause soap build-up, and wear down fixtures and appliances. So it’s important to install a water softener if you’re on well water.

Well Water Can Stink — Because it comes from the ground, well water might smell bad and it also might stain appliances due to high amounts of iron. Installing a special iron filtration system will save on stains and improve the taste of the well water.

Well Water Can Become Contaminated — Obviously, well water can become contaminated. And that’s why it’s important to test the water at least once per year and ALWAYS use a high-quality filtration system before drinking the water. The most effective method is reverse osmosis.
