Keeping Your Family Supplied with Safe Water in Walworth County and the Surrounding Areas
Approximately 40% of homes in Wisconsin have water supplied by private wells. It is up to the homeowner to have the well water tested and address any potential issues.
O'Leary Plumbing, Heating & Electrical provides water well services, including water testing, chlorinating wells, and installing water wells. In addition, we can install water softeners and filtration systems to improve your water quality.
What is the Importance of Water Well Testing?
In most cases, well water is safe. However, well water can become contaminated with substances that can impact human health. These substances don’t always have a color or taste, so the only way to know your water isn’t safe is to have it tested regularly. It is recommended that private wells be tested annually for bacteria and nitrates.
Bacteria contamination can result from:
- Wells that are not properly built
- Work being performed on the well
- Septic waste entering the water
- Animal waste in the groundwater
Bacteria in the well can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramps. We provide annual water testing for bacteria, such as E. coli and total coliform, to protect your family’s health. In addition, we can test your well water for nitrates, which can cause birth defects, thyroid disease, and an increased risk of certain types of cancer.
Chlorination for Water Wells
If your water shows the presence of bacteria or other contaminants, the test can be repeated to confirm the results. Once we know what is contaminating your water, we can work with you to find the best solution to the problem. Chlorinating the well can be an effective solution for bacteria and other contaminants in the well water.
It is recommended that you have a professional chlorinate your well for you to ensure that the job is done right and hazards related to the improper use of the chemicals are avoided. Our experienced technicians can safely and effectively chlorinate your well to make your water safe for your family. After the process is complete, we can test your water again for your peace of mind.
Water Well Installation
Are you building a new home or thinking of changing to a private supply for your water? If so, reach out to O'Leary Plumbing, Heating & Electrical to discuss your water well installation options. The type of well you have put in on your property will depend on the size of your home and the amount of water you use. Our team can assess your needs and develop solutions tailored for you.
A new water well must be installed correctly and according to code. Failing to follow proper procedures could result in future problems, such as the introduction of harmful bacteria into your drinking water.

After we complete the project, we will test, flush, and disinfect the well to make sure it is working as it should.
