Pay Attention To The Amount Of Air That Is Emitted From Your Faucets

Understand that you always want to keep your water table level at a point to where air doesn't enter the picture. A well that is functioning at the level that it should be is drawing upon a complete supply of water. There is very little air in the mix and if there is some present it isn't a cause for concern.

The problem can become so severe that it actually gives forth a loud sound that can be quite unsettling if you haven't heard it in times past.
