Why Is There Standing Water Around My Well?


Standing Water Around My Well

Why do I have water standing around my well?

If there is water standing around your well it indicates you have a leak. The leak is typically in the water discharge pipe (pipe from your well to the water system).

If you have steel pipes, rust could have caused a hole in your plumbing, likely causing a leak.

If you have plastic pipes, the fittings sometimes break causing a leak. The breakage is often caused from the movement of the ground.

Swelling and shrinking happens from wet and dry ground. The problem can be repaired by digging down to the leak and replacing the fitting and/or pipe.
