Water disappeared in the well - what to do

Adding an article to a new collection

The problem of the disappearance of water in the well is especially acute for people permanently living in areas with seasonal water. For them, a well is the only source of liquid, without which a person cannot do in any way, especially in rural conditions. How can I solve this problem?

We will definitely answer this question, as well as why the situation with the disappearance of water in principle can arise. Let's say right away that there may be several reasons and they are quite different.

Today in Russia wells in the form of a well are widespread, where a submersible pump is lowered. The latter is powered by electricity from a household electrical outlet.

What signs indicate a water shortage in the well

There are not many of them, but they all signal the same thing: there is a problem with water on your site.

  • The water pressure from the tap has decreased. If at the same time you did not regulate the force of pressure, then here is the first "bell" for you.
  • The water level in the well does not rise. It also signals that you have a problem with the well. Now it remains to figure out which ones.

The water in the well was lost due to weather conditions

Cold, heat and lack of precipitation are direct causes of changes in the water level in a well or well. This also includes seasonal changes in the level of groundwater in spring or autumn. In this case, it may be enough to wait for a while - and the level will recover by itself after eliminating the weather root cause. If this did not happen (for example, the frost or heat has weakened for a long time, precipitation has fallen, but there is still no water), it is worth deepening the well by 3-5 m (maximum - by 15 m). When deepening inward, smaller rings are installed.

There is no water in the well due to excavation work

Perhaps one of your neighbors also decided to acquire their own well, which provoked the "departure" of some or even all of the water in the appropriate direction. The explanation is simple: you and your neighbors share the same aquifer. In this situation, you need to wait at least a month and make sure that the water has really "left" from the well. The solution to the problem is the same as in the paragraph above: the well will have to be deepened.

All such work should be carried out only with the involvement of professionals. When you try to implement the option on your own or with the involvement of home-grown specialists, there is a high risk of blocking the aquifer and being left without water for good.

Well silting as the reason for the disappearance of water

Water disappeared in the well - what to do

The dacha has long ceased to be just a plot for a vegetable garden. It all began precisely with the provision of the population with land plots where they could grow vegetables and fruits. Thus, the problem with food supply was solved. Indeed, the dacha helped many to survive in difficult years.

But now the dacha has become for many just an integral part of life. They also grow vegetables and fruits, relax, build swimming pools, summer houses, create gardens, and put up gazebos. A whole trend has appeared in landscape and country design. Residents of cities try to go out into the air, if possible, for the whole summer. There are options when they live outside the city almost all year round. Naturally, in order to easily leave for the weekend in winter and summer, you need to first equip the summer cottage, create not just a suitable, but a very cozy and comfortable environment. An important role is played by lighting, both indoor and outdoor.

Today we will consider street lighting: how to place, which spotlights to choose, the pros and cons of different types of lamps.

Operating conditions

Some will say that the operating conditions do not matter, because the floodlight is chosen for the street. The main thing is to illuminate the territory, preferably, and to make it cheaper. But this is not a completely correct understanding of street lighting. First of all, let's highlight a few functions:

  • lighting, i.e. lamps are designed specifically to illuminate the local area at night;
  • architectural allows you to implement interesting facade solutions, highlight walls, roof, doors, fences, garden paths;
  • decorative, which will decorate your garden area or delimit functional areas;
  • security lighting serves as a signal and warning, reacts to motion sensors.

Depending on the function, different types of lamps and projectors are selected and installed.

Types of street lamps

Another important thing is to decide on the type of lamp you want to install. Consider the technical characteristics of each variety.

LED lamps.

Most modern light sources are not yet very cheap, but this is offset by numerous advantages. Among them:

  • low power consumption;
  • a high degree of protection from external influences, what is called the IP protection degree;
  • the possibility of using as a strong frost (from minus 30 ° С), and in sweltering heat (up to plus 40 ° С);
  • durability, it will have to be changed no earlier than after 50 thousand hours of service.
