Many modern homeowners are seeking alternatives to city water, making private water wells an increasingly popular option. However, unlike local municipal water systems, this groundwater does not go through chemical filtering prior to use.
Because of this, and because of the nature of private water wells, routine water well maintenance, and sometimes water well rehabilitation are required to keep your home supplied with a reliable, fresh, clean, and free water supply.
At East Wichita Well & Pump we offer a wide range of well and pump services designed to provide our customers with affordable, efficient and reliable solutions they can count on.

Annual Maintenance for Health, Safety and Performance
For most customers, we suggest annual inspections of wells for contaminants, cleanliness of the water and for any mechanical or structural issues that may arise.
Identifying problems early on can protect the health of you and your family, as well as tackle small issues before they become bigger headaches that lead to a need for extensive repairs or remediation.
Common Contaminants Tested For May Include:

Water Well Rehabilitation
Water well rehabilitation may be necessary to restore the performance of a well that is failing. The process involves a number of measures, treatments and redevelopment methods tailored to each individual situation.
Benefits of Well Rehabilitation
- Lower energy costs due to optimized pump performance
- Increased pump longevity
- Cost-effectively extend the life of the well
- Enhanced water quality (taste, smell, purity and appearance)
- Chemical: identifying underlying causes of well plugging and utilizing a chemical solution designed to dissolve the offending material
- Mechanical: may involve the use of a scrub brush, air jetting, or a surge block in order to dislodge any material plugging the well
