Rural Water Systems – Parts

You’ll want to keep some parts on hand to keep your system running smoothly.

  • Filter elements
  • O-rings for filters
  • Wrench for filters
  • Bulb for UV unit
  • Quartz tube for UV unit
  • Pump for well

These items can be stored in the pump house.  Filter elements should be replaced when water pressure gets low (takes longer to fill water buckets for your horses).  The UV bulb should be replaced annually.

Don’t forget salt pellets for the softener.  Not really a spare part but a consumable.  Put at least five 50-pound bags in storage.  Check the brine tank once a month and add salt as needed.
