2. If you need to schedule a curb stop shut off prior to trenching and piping being installed, you will need to schedule this with Aquamen 603-905-9073.
3. It is your responsibility to schedule a time with Aquamen to come and take the meter, sensor box . PLVD will include invoice from Aquamen into final invoice.
There should be a minimum 12-inch gap between the public water system piping in the house and the new connection to the private well. More importantly, the water system piping should be cut from the residential piping and capped. Please submit a photo of the gap and capped pipe to email@example.com.
4. Also submit a picture of your meter reading and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org this will insure you don't get charged for months you aren't on the system and lets us know the actual date of disconnect.
5. Will you have your water tested yes or no in the final email sent would be appreciated.
NOTE: For your own safety, please have your new water source analyzed for the Standard Analysis. Wells on PLVD's small lots are susceptible to bacteria, and water from bedrock in some areas of PLVD have significant amounts of arsenic (which the publics water system removes to below the federal maximum contaminant limit).
Water analysis laboratories can be found at this online location: https://www.des.nh.gov/organization/divisions/water/dwgb/well_testing/accredited-labs.htm.
The Be Well Informed app will help you identify any issues indicated by your water test results, and can be found here: https://www4.des.state.nh.us/DWITool/
Your in home water system should be inspected and maintained once a year, the best time is in the spring.
Inspection: Inspect your plumbing and mechanical components looking for leaks, corrosion, broken hangers and mounts. Check out side hose bibs to check functionality, and they are damage free from the winter weather. Inspect inside fixtures for leaks, drips, corrosion, and staining. This would include faucets, showers, washing machine, dishwasher, any fixture that dispenses water. check toilets for proper operation, make sure they allowing water pass through them when not being used. Check for build up in the holding tanks.
Filters and screens: House hold filters should be checked and replaced as need be, this would include whole house filters on your main supply line, all inline filter such as Reverse Osmosis filters, refrigerator filters, Brita filters. House hold screens should also be removed, cleaned and inspected to be sure they are free from dibris and corrosion. This would include faucets, sprayers, washing machine hoses, shower heads ext.
Mechanical component maintenance:
Valves: check proper position on/off, check for leaks, functionality Filters: make sure they are clean and water passes through them easily, replace as needed.
Pressure Tanks: should be drained and flushed once a year, if they require a pre charge of air the amount of psi precharge should be checked. This setting may vary with your water pressure setting.
Water pressure booster pumps: check for leaks, proper pressure setting. most common setting 60-70 psi. insure the area around them is clean and open enough to move air as the motors are air cooled.
Hot Water Tanks: it is recommended they are drained and flushed once a year. The water temperature should be checked to prevent injury and consistency of the temperature. The replacement of the anode rod is recommended, this is a sacrificial component of your hot water heater to prevent internal corrosion and odors.
