A hard winter for wells

March 4, 2015

This February, because of the intense cold we’ve been experiencing this winter, the frost has already reached a depth of over one and a half meters. So what are the consequences? Firstly, there is a risk that the water of your surface well, which is drawn from a point very close to ground level, will freeze, leaving you without water.

Secondly, you may even experience water freezing problems with an artesian well, and this is because of your pipes. These temperatures will be the norm from now on according to Environment Canada, so here are some tips to help you avoid this annoying situation.

Don’t forget that prevention is better than cure. It is a major inconvenience to be without water, and water freezing in the pipes can also cause damage, which will need to be repaired, or even lead to some components having to be replaced.
